Can No. 2 West Virginia go on the road and handle No. 8 Texas Tech when the two teams meet up today at 2PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Texas Tech is favored at home, as the Red Raiders are getting odds of -4.5 points against West Virginia. The over/under total for this game is listed at 144 points. Today’s game takes place from United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock, Texas and will air live on ESPN.

West Virginia is coming off a narrow 57-54 win over Baylor at home earlier this week to improve to improve to 15-1 on the season. The Mountaineers are also 4-0 in the Big 12 and 6-6 against the spread. WVU is averaging 82.8 points per game this season while allowing 64.9 per game.

Bet on West Virginia vs. Texas Tech

West Virginia has won seven of the last eight meetings in this series, covering the spread in five of the eight games. Covering on the road hasn’t been a problem for the Mountaineers. Their defense takes a slight step back, but not enough to think they can’t win this game. The Red Raiders haven’t faced a defense quite like this yet and I think their lack of scorers will be a problem. The public betting is backing West Virginia as well.
