Texas Tech Vs. Ole Miss Betting Odds Breakdown

On Wednesday, Texas Tech and Ole Miss will be meeting up in the Texas Bowl.

Ole Miss is coming into this game as the favorite at -3.5, and the over/under is sitting at 71.5 points.

Texas Tech Preview

Texas Tech finished their season at 7-5, with them ending their season with a three game win streak.

In their final game, they beat Oklahoma in overtime by the score of 51-48. It wasn’t much of a defensive game, and they will want to bring their defense back in the Texas Bowl. They couldn’t find a way to stop quarterback Dillon Gabriel, who had 449 passing yards. It will not get much easier against Ole Miss when it comes to defending the passing game, but almost anything will be better than what they did against Oklahoma.

An offensive performance like they had against Oklahoma should be good enough to secure a victory against any team. But once again, an offense playing this well consistently is nearly impossible. And on top of that, the defense that Ole Miss has is not too bad. We’ve seen crazy offensive performances before, so it can happen again. But in all reality, they really do need to clean up their defense before they even worry about how they will perform on offense.

Ole Miss Preview

Ole Miss finished their season at 8-4, and they ended their season on a three game losing streak.

Going into this game, Ole Miss has to get some confidence back after ending their season on a three game losing streak. But luckily for them, it feels like they have a few advantages over Texas Tech. One of these big advantages is their run game, where they certainly have an advantage. Along with that, Texas Tech will be without their star pass-rusher in Tyree Wilson. So, him being out can open up some opportunities for Ole Miss on offense, in both the passing and run game.

This game should be fairly high scoring. Texas Tech is missing a key defensive player, and Ole Miss will definitely have trouble defending Texas Tech’s elite passing game, which averages about 307.5 passing yards per game. That’s the biggest problem that Ole Miss will be facing in this game, and it will be interesting to see how they will adapt to the challenge.
