2021 Texas Tech Red Raiders Football Betting Predictions

June 14, 2021

2021 Texas Tech Red Raiders Betting Odds, Predictions, Preview

After last year’s mediocre 4-6 season the Red Raiders will look to a bounceback in a competitive Big 12. With former Oregon quarterback Tyler Shough showing promise and a ton of starts returning on both sides of the ball this team is looking great.

My Preseason best bet is Texas Tech over 4.5 wins. I normally don’t like win totals with these kinds of odds but the Red Raiders seem very undervalued. They start out with three nonconference opponents which they should end up finishing 2-1 against, after that there next three conference opponents are all on or below their skill level. This team will likely be sitting with four wins going into Week 7 and Kansas still on the schedule. Overall I’m not a fan of the odds but I love this number, will be shopping around all offseason but this is very doable.

Preseason Best Bet: Over 4.5 Wins -152

Texas Tech Odds to win 2021 Big 12 Championship

Yes +5000

Considering the fact that they are only losing a couple of starters on both sides of the ball I like their odds to improve this year. New quarterback Tyler Shough has flashed significant upside in past games and if he develops under this new system he could really bring some good offense to the Big 12. While I like the Red Raider’s future outlook I think it might take them a couple more seasons of rebuilding to really be in contention. I don’t hate a sprinkle on this number considering their upside but there is certainly a lot that can go wrong.

2021 Big 12 Conference Betting Odds

Texas Tech Odds to Win 2021-22 College Football Playoff

Yes +75000

As much as I would like to confidently tout a +75000 bet I’m just not interested. Texas Tech is definitely setting up the foundation for a solid future but that’s still multiple seasons away. Even if they do get absolute ceiling performances from their young offense they still will struggle against elite opponents like Oklahoma. The Red Raiders are on a good path I’m just not interested in them quite yet.

Texas Tech 2021 Heisman Contenders & Odds

Tyler Shough +6600

I like the upside the Oregon transfer provides I’m just now sure he can get come out the gate strong enough. Texas Tech is also not known for its national media attention, with multiple strong Heisman contenders in the state of Texas, Shough is gonna have to be truly spectacular to have a shot at this. I’m excited to watch his development and see him improve but I’m not interested in betting him at +6600.
