2011 Oklahoma State Cowboys vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders OddsYikes. Just a few weeks ago, the Red Raiders were basking in the glow of their upset of then-No. 1 Oklahoma.

Then they plummeted back to earth in a display of flaming wreckage not witnessed since the Hindenburg disaster.

Outscored 93-27 in back-to-back embarrassments against Iowa State and Texas, there’s no way we want the Techsters here, right? Not so fast, my friend!

For openers, Okie State finally looked human last week against Kansas State, barely eking out a 7-point win as three TD favorites.

And our ‘As The Noose Tightens’ BSN Sports previews reminds us that the rope is STILL squarely around the undefeated Cowboys’ neck and their 110th-ranked defense.

That pressure gets even more intense when Rocky Marciano (aka TTRR head coach Tommy Tuberville) takes the ring in his best role: 15- 12 SU and 17-10 ATS versus undefeated conference opponents, including an amazing 3-2 SU and 5-0 ATS as a dog of 17 or more points (remember Oklahoma three weeks ago? The Sooners do!).

Tubs can also claim a 10-7 SU mark at home in his coaching career when challenging an unbeaten foe (no loss by more than 17 points).

And on that note, our database points out that Texas Tech is 37-9 SU in its last 46 home games, with only two losses by more than – you guessed it – the magical 17 points.

Raiders own the series edge, too, cashing in five of the last six on this field. We will acknowledge OSU’s 14-0 SU and 11-2-1 ATS success versus avenging Big 12 foes but the Cowboys have been saddled with way too many points here.

Grab ‘em while you can, then strap yourself in for a high-noon Lone Star shootout.

Sportsbooks currently have Oklahoma State listed as 19½-point favorites versus the Red Raiders, and the game's total is sitting at 78.
