Last Friday, the Golden Nugget released some incredibly too early betting lines for six of Texas Tech's games this fall, including Oklahoma St., Kansas St., West Virginia, Texas, Oklahoma and Baylor.  Of those six games, Texas Tech is only favored in two of them, Texas and West Virginia.  All of the other games, Texas Tech is at least a touchdown underdog to Oklahoma St., Kansas St. and Oklahoma, and half a point of being a touchdown underdog to Baylor.

Let's hear it.  If anything, this makes me thing that Vegas really isn't sure what to make of Texas Tech or Texas, for the most part and has the Red Raiders losing to the teams that have soundly beaten them the past few years.  Admittedly, there have been some aberrations, but for the most part, Oklahoma St., Oklahoma and Baylor have pretty much taken care of Texas Tech, so it seems like the oddsmakers are going off of history more than anything else. I find it odd that Texas Tech is a 10 point favorite against West Virginia.
