Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma Pick

Big 12 College Basketball Predictions: Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma 1/9/18

Which top-10 team will come away with a big win when No. 8 Texas Tech faces No. 9 Oklahoma tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Oklahoma is favored at home, as the Sooners are getting odds of -3.5 points against Texas Tech. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 164 points. Today’s game takes place from Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, Oklahoma and will air live on ESPNU.

Texas Tech is on a real hot streak, winning eight straight games. The Red Raiders are 14-1 overall, 3-0 in the Big 12 and 8-3 against the spread. Tech has covered in four straight lined games. Texas Tech averages 81.1 points per game this season while giving up just 59.2 per contest. Keenan Evans is putting up 17.2 points per game to lead the Raiders while Zhaire Smith is adding 10.7 points and 4.3 rebounds per contest.

Oklahoma had its win streak ended by West Virginia on Saturday in an 89-76 loss on the road. The Sooners are 12-2 overall, 2-1 in the Big 12 and 6-7 against the spread. Oklahoma has covered in four of its last five lined games. The Sooners have one of the top offenses in the nation, averaging 94.4 points per game overall and 101.9 per game at home. Defensively, they allow 81.2 per game. Trae Young is leading Oklahoma with 29.4 points and 10.2 assists per game while Brady Manek is adding 11 points and 5.6 rebounds per game.

Bet on Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma

The home team has won and covered in four straight meetings in this series. I like the home team again tonight. While Texas Tech has a good defense, the Red Raiders aren’t nearly as strong defensively on the road. Tech will have its hands full with Young, who is responsible for around 50 points per game right now. Coming off a road loss and returning home, I expect Oklahoma to look great tonight. The public betting is also with the Sooners tonight.
