Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma State Betting Prediction from Jack Jones: September 25th 2014

TEXAS TECH VS. OKLAHOMA STATE PREDICTION SEPTEMBER 25TH 2014Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma State
Betting Prediction: Oklahoma State -14 (September 25th 2014)
CLICK HERE FOR JACK JONES’ EXPERT COLLEGE FOOTBALL PICKS

The No. 24 Oklahoma State Cowboys (2-1) kick off their Big 12 season against the Texas Tech Red Raiders (2-1) on Thursday, September 25th. The Cowboys have had the Red Raiders’ number with five straight wins in this series, including a 52-34 road victory last season.

Both teams had a bye last week to get ready for this contest. The Cowboys are coming off a 43-13 home victory over UTSA last time out, while the Red Raiders will be looking to bounce back from an ugly 28-49 home loss to Arkansas.

To say this has been a one-sided series would be a massive understatement. The Cowboys have simply dominated this series, going a perfect 5-0 SU and 5-0 ATS in the last five meetings. The last four haven’t even been close as Oklahoma State has won by 18, 38, 60 and 17 points, respectively. They won by a final of 52-34 on the road in 2013, 59-21 at home in 2012, 66-6 on the road in 2011, and 34-17 on the road in 2010.

It’s clear to see that everyone, including myself, wasn’t giving the Cowboys enough credit heading into the 2014 season due to all the starters they lost from last year. The proved they could play with anyone in the country when they only lost 31-37 to defending national champion Florida State in their opener. Their 43-13 win over a very good UTSA team last time out was almost equally impressive.

It was announced that starting quarterback J.W. Walsh would be out for the season for Oklahoma State after he suffered a broken foot against Missouri State on September 6th. Few teams in the country can play as well or better with their backup quarterback, and the Cowboys have proven through the years that they are one of them.

Daxx Garman got the start against UTSA and thrived, leading the Cowboys to 477 yards of total offense, while the defense only gave up 206 total yards and 11 first downs in the win. Garman threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. Desmond Roland rushed for 95 yards and two scores. Garman even surveyed the field and found his best option as a whopping nine different receivers caught passes from him.

Texas Tech has a pretty solid offense, but even it hasn’t been that good this season. The real problem for the Red Raiders is their defense, which can’t stop anyone. That’s why they survived scares in their first two games with a 42-35 home win over Central Arkansas as a 34-point favorite, and a 30-26 road win at UTEP as a 21-point favorite. They stood no chance against Arkansas, losing by a final of 28-49 as they gave up a whopping 439 yards on the ground. Texas Tech is now allowing 36.7 points and 432.7 yards per game this season.

Oklahoma State is 17-3 ATS in its last 20 home games when playing against a good team with a winning percentage from 60% to 75%. The Red Raiders are 0-7 ATS after allowing 42 or more points past game over the past three seasons. The Cowboys are 26-9 ATS in their last 35 games after scoring 37 points or more in two straight games. Texas Tech is 1-8 ATS in its last eight games overall. Oklahoma State is 12-3 ATS in its last 15 home games. Bet Oklahoma State Thursday.

Arizona State vs. UCLA Football Betting Odds & Prediction: September 25th 2014

ARIZONA STATE VS. UCLA BETTING ODDS PREDICTION SEPTEMBER 25TH 2014The UCLA Bruins (3-0 SU, 0-3 ATS, 1-2 O/U) have struggled to an undefeated record, but they keep finding ways to win. Arizona State (3-0 SU, 1-2 ATS, 1-2 O/U) has really not been tested yet and this will be a tough one. Arizona State hosts UCLA on Thursday night at 10pmET from Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe.

Betting Odds: UCLA opened as a 3-point betting odds favorite and moved to 4 in most books. The total opened at 60 and remained there.

UCLA star quarterback Brett Hundley came into this season as a potential Heisman candidate. That hasn’t worked out as well as expected as Hundley struggled early and then injured his left elbow (non-throwing) in their last game against Texas on Sept. 13.

Hundley is expected to return to a team that has struggled on the ground. When he was out against Texas, backup quarterback Jerry Neuheisel tossed two touchdown passes to lead the Bruins to a 20-17 win. He completed 23-of-30 for 178 yards and had help from a pretty good receiving corps led by Jordan Payton (19 catches for 266 yards).

The running game is led by Paul Perkins, who has 304 yards and two touchdowns. He ran for 126 yards against Texas, while Jordan James added 69 yards.

On defense, UCLA has been solid but not great. They’ve allowed 24 points per game and 392.3 yards per contest. They’ve allowed fie touchdowns in nine red-zone opportunities.

Linebacker Eric Kendricks leads with 37 tackles and an interception while linebacker/running back has 26 tackles.

Taylor Kelly has 625 yards passing with six touchdowns and no interceptions. Kelly injured his foot against Colorado on Sept. 13 and will be out indefinitely.

Kelly’s replacement is junior Mike Bercovici, who has a big arm and has thrown just 24 passes since 2012 when he lost to Kelly in a preseason quarterback battle.

The good news for the Sun Devils is that the ground game has worked. They rank 11th in the nation in rushing yards (304.3 yards per game). Running back D.J. Foster is fifth in the nation in rushing yards per game at 170 and also has six overall touchdowns. He also has 139 yards receiving on 11 receptions.

Wideout Jaelen Strong leads the team in receptions with 19 and receiving yards with 266.

Defensively, ASU has allowed nearly 400 yards per game and 20.3 points per game.

Just like the Bruins, who have Myles Jack, the Sun Devils have a player who plays both sides of the ball. De’Marieya Nelson is a former tight end who had two touchdowns last year, plays on special teams and has 16 tackles, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery at linebacker.

Prediction:
When UCLA plays tight defense, they are tough to beat. They have won 23 straight games when holding their opponent to less than 20 points. That’s asking a lot against Arizona State, who has scored on all 16 trips into the red zone this season, with 13 touchdowns.

Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma State Football Betting Odds & Prediction: September 25th 2014

TEXAS TECH VS. OKLAHOMA STATE ODDS SEPTEMBER 25TH 2014The ball will be flying on Thursday night in Big 12 action. Texas Tech (2-1 SU, 0-3 ATS, 2-1 O/U) is looking for an identity after falling two weeks ago at home to Arkansas, 49-28. They travel to Oklahoma State (2-1 SU, 2-1 ATS, 3-0 O/U) to face the Cowboys, who have put up 124 points in their first three games. Texas Tech travels to Stillwater to meet Oklahoma State from Boone Pickens Stadium on Thursday night at 7:30pmET.

Betting Odds: Oklahoma State opened at 14 and moved to 13.5 in most books. The total opened at 71.5 and moved to 72.

Texas Tech hasn’t played since Sept. 13, when they lost To Arkansas, 49-28 at home. The Red Raiders allowed 438 rushing yards and the defensive coordinator Matt Wallerstedt resigned from his position, not because of poor performance. He resigned, reportedly, due to improper substance on campus.

Texas Tech has allowed 36.7 points per game this season, to rank 112th in the nation.

Even though Texas Tech won their first two games over Central Arkansas and UTEP, it was by a combined 11 points and they didn’t cover.

Last year, they allowed Oklahoma State to rush for 281 yards and five TDs in a 52-34 win at Lubbock for their fifth win of the season.

Davis Webb leads the Texas Tech offense with 982 yards with 10 touchdowns and four interceptions. WR Jakeem Grant is the top receiver with 20 catches for 283 yards and a score, while Brad Marquez has five TDs.

The running attack is led by DeAndre Washington and Justin Stockton, who combine to average more than 130 yards per game.

Defensively, they allowed just 135 yards passing but the run defense is terrible as opponents are running for nearly 300 yards per game with 13 touchdowns.

Oklahoma State has won five straight against Texas Tech and have not lost at home since 2001. Mike Gundy’s teams have always been productive offensively and if they can find some help defensively, they can get to a BCS bowl.

With J.W. Walsh injured, Daxx Garman has stepped in and has played well. On Sept. 13, he threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns. Desmond Roland ran for 95 yards and two scores in their win over UTSA on Sept. 13 at home (43-13).

That was his first start since taking over for Walsh. However, Garman and Walsh have hit less than 60 percent of their passes, but they have thrown just one interception. They spread it around to 12 different players led by Tyreek Hill.

The defense has been so far, especially on third downs as they held their opponents to a 24.4 percent conversion rate. They allowed just 206 total yards to Texas-San Antonio with 11 first downs.

The Cowboys are led by Ryan Simmons, who has 21 tackles while Jordan Sterns added 19 tackles.

Prediction:
Texas Tech was already unsettled on defense. Outside linebacker coach Mike Smith will take over as the coordinator on an interim basis. They can’t feel comfortable heading into Stillwater against a dangerous offensive team.
