Red Raiders surprise?

Big 12: Texas Tech Red Raiders

The Red Raiders could be the surprise team in the Big XII this season; if you think they are, you can make a future bet right now that they win the Conference. The odds are long, and the payoff will be great! Check out our best betting sites for making that bet!

It’s Texas Tech. It’s supposed to put up one million passing yards and 920 points a game.

That’s this year for that – last year’s team at least got to a bowl game after switching up coaches during the season – but there’s a twist.

Defense will matter, too.

New head coach Joey McGuire and defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter know what they’re doing. This year’s D will generate a lot more pressure, the secondary concerns are being worked on, and in the end, all this group needs to do is occasionally hold serve.

Western Kentucky had one of the nation’s most explosive offenses last year after having one of the biggest snoozer attacks for a few years. And why? It brought in offensive coordinator Zach Kittley and most of the big passing game parts.

Now Kittley is in Lubbock, the Red Raiders are about to wing it all over the yard, helped by a stunningly deep quarterback group to choose from, and for most teams, you need not plan on getting off the bus unless you’re prepared to score 40 points.

The big problem is a too-nasty schedule with Houston possibly the year’s best Group of Five teams, a trip to NC State, and the Big 12 looking rough from top to Kansas.

However, Oklahoma, Baylor, and Texas are both coming to town, and again, this offense is about to give a lot of teams a bad day. The Red Raiders will be very competitive this coming season, with a few lucky bounces; who knows?
