Oklahoma State fell by a score of 85-46 Saturday at Kansas State to fall to 10-17 overall and 3-11 in the Big 12 Conference. The Cowboys trailed 42-18 at halftime on its way to the lopsided loss. Oklahoma State shot 16-of-51 from the field, 4-of-24 from 3-point range and 10-of-15 at the free throw line. Yor Anei paced OSU with 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting including 2-of-3 at the free throw line. He also notched three rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots.

Texas Tech secured a 91-62 home win Saturday over Kansas to move to 22-5 overall and 10-4 in Big 12 play. The Red Raiders raced out to a 45-20 halftime advantage on their way to the easy win. Texas Tech shot 34-of-56 from the field, 16-of-26 from 3-point distance and 7-of-13 at the free throw line. Jarrett Culver led the Red Raiders with 26 points on 10-of-21 shooting including 3-of-8 from 3-point distance plus 3-of-5 at the free throw line. He also tallied four assists and two rebounds.

College Basketball Betting Trends
The Cowboys are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 Big 12 games. Oklahoma State is 1-4 ATS in its last five Wednesday games.
The Red Raiders are 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall. Texas Tech is 4-0 ATS in its last four home games.
It was only two weeks ago that the Red Raiders dominated host Oklahoma State to the tune of 78-50. With the way Texas Tech has been playing, I can’t see any way this one stays close. The Red Raiders are ranked first nationally in adjusted defensive efficiency and I don’t believe the Cowboys can find enough baskets to make this competitive. Give the points and take Texas Tech.
