Public Betting Information
As of this writing, 69% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Lumberjacks to cover the double-digit point spread. Meanwhile, 53% of the betting tickets are on the over.
As of this writing, there are no players listed on either teams’ injury reports ahead of tip-off tonight.
These two teams are complete opposites right now at the betting window. While Shannon Bogues and Co. have been killing it for bettors, Keenan Evans and the Red Raiders have been a disaster. Texas Tech is 0-6-1 against the spread in its last seven games overall, is 16-34-1 against the number in its last 51 neutral site games, and has failed to cover in six of its last seven games coming off a loss (with one push). Meanwhile, Stephen F. Austin is 4-1 against the spread in its last five games overall, is 4-1 against the number in its last five games coming off a win, and is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage above .600. I won’t call for the outright upset tonight, but I do like the Lumberjacks to hang at the betting window.
