Oklahoma St. vs. Texas Tech Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Will Texas Tech cover vs. Oklahoma State?

Will No. 14 Texas Tech get back on track tonight when the Red Raiders play host to Oklahoma State tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Texas Tech is favored at home, as the Red Raiders are getting odds of -9.5 points against Oklahoma State. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 140.5 points. Tonight’s game is taking place at United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock, Texas and will air live on ESPN News.

Oklahoma State is coming off a big 83-81 OT win over Oklahoma at home this past weekend. The Cowboys are 13-6 overall, 3-4 in the Big 12 and 6-10 against the spread. Oklahoma State is averaging 79.3 points per game this season on offense while allowing 72.4 per game on defense. Jeffrey Carroll is averaging 16.2 points and 6.4 rebounds per game to lead the Cowboys while Tavarius Shine is adding 11.8 points per contest.

Texas Tech is coming off a 70-52 loss at Iowa State for its third loss in four games. However, all three losses came on the road. Tech is now 15-4 overall, 4-3 in the Big 12 and 8-7 against the spread. The Raiders have failed to cover in four straight games. Texas Tech is averaging 77 points per game on offense this season while holding opponents to just 61.6 per game. Keenan Evans is averaging 16.6 points per game to lead Texas Tech while Zhaire Smith is adding 10.5 points and 4.6 rebounds per game.

Bet on Oklahoma State vs. Texas Tech

Oklahoma State has won and covered in the last two meetings with Texas Tech, but I think the Cowboys will have trouble tonight. They are giving up 90 points per game on the road and 0-3 overall in road games. Texas Tech is 12-0 at home and the Red Raiders will have a defensive effort that is able to contain this Oklahoma State offense. The public betting is strongly with Texas Tech tonight and I agree with them. I like the Red Raiders.
