The Texas Tech Red Raiders had to replace a ton of production from their NCAA Championship finalist team last season, but they broke in their young talent with a 25-point win over Eastern Illinois in the season opener. Bethune-Cookman may look like they are capable of covering the spread against Texas Tech after dropping 110 points on a D2 team, but Texas Tech is a whole new breed and they will fluster the Wildcats on the defensive side of the court. I expect Chris Beard to get his young guard Jahmi’us Ramsey going again as he dropped 19 points against Eastern Illinois, and I expect him to have success at home. Final Score Prediction, Texas Tech Red Raiders win and cover ATS 79-46.
