Texas Tech Hosts Baylor on Saturday NCAA Football Week 9

Baylor vs. Texas Tech CashBet Wagering Analysis  

It does not take much to go from a coaching hero into an NCAAF bets zero.  And vice versa.  For the past two seasons, Baylor head coach Dave Aranda has often been the hottest name on the coaching carousel.  But Aranda has lost some shine over the past month.  Nebraska was said to be targeting Aranda for its opening.  But those rumors began to quiet after Baylor struggled to stay above the .500 mark.  This week the Bears have a dangerous game at Texas Tech.  Accordingly, Tech coach Joey McGuire is flipping the Tech script.
