Texas Tech vs. Kansas Pick

CBB Predictions: Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. Kansas Jayhawks 1/7/17

Will No. 3 Kansas be able to cruise to its 14th-straight win when it hosts Texas Tech tonight at 7:15PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Kansas is favored at home today, as the Jayhawks are getting odds of -10 points against the Red Raiders. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 144.5 points. Kansas has won 10 straight in this series and the Jayhawks are 7-3 against the spread in those 10 meetings.

Bet on Texas Tech vs. Kansas

Kansas is on a 13-game winning streak since losing the season opener to move to 13-1 on the year. The latest win was a buzzer-beater at home over Kansas State, but the Jayhawks have failed to cover in five of their last six lined games and are now just 4-8 against the spread on the year. Kansas puts up 86.8 points per game on offense this season while the defense is giving up 69.9 points per contest. Frank Mason III is leading Kansas this season with 19.5 points and 5.8 assists per game while Josh Jackson is putting up 15.2 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

Texas Tech is coming off a 77-76 OT win over West Virginia to move to 12-2 on the season. The Red Raiders are 6-4 against the spread this season, having covered in five of their last seven lined games. Texas Tech has an offense that is putting up 79.8 points per game and a defense that is holding opponents to just 61.1 points per contest. Rebounding has been a big edge, as the Red Raiders are allowing an average of just 24 boards to opponents. Keenan Evans is averaging 13.4 points to lead Tech this season while Anthony Livingston and Zach Smith each average 12 points per game.

Texas Tech has done a good job of limiting opponents to one shot on a possession and that is why they have been successful this year. Kansas is on a 13-game winning streak, but the Jayhawks are running past opponents. Their first two conference games have been a grind and I see this one being a battle too, as Texas Tech is eager to prove it can contend on the national level.
