Texas Tech vs. Iowa State Pick

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

Can No. 7 Texas Tech take care of business at home tonight when the Red Raiders host Iowa State at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Texas Tech is the clear favorite in this game, as the Red Raiders are getting odds of -14 points against Iowa State. The over/under total for the game is listed at 139 points. Tonight’s game takes place from United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock, Texas and will air live on ESPNU.

Texas Tech has won four straight coming into tonight, including an 83-71 win at TCU this past weekend. The Red Raiders are 19-4 overall, 7-3 in the Big 12 and 10-9 against the spread. Tech is averaging 76.7 points per game on offense while allowing just 62.9 per game. Keenan Evans is leading Tech with 18.6 points and 3.5 assists per game while Jarrett Culver is adding 10.8 points per contest.

Iowa State is coming off an 81-67 loss at Baylor. The Cyclones have lost three of their last four games. Iowa State is now 12-10 overall, 3-7 in the Big 12 and 7-12-1 against the spread. ISU is averaging 73.7 points per game on offense while allowing 73.6 per contest on defense. Lindell Wigginton is averaging 16 points per game to lead the Cyclones while Donovan Jackson is adding 15.8 points per contest.

Bet on Iowa State vs. Texas Tech

Iowa State has won three straight meetings with Texas Tech, including a 70-52 win at home back on Jan. 20. That loss should help motivate the Red Raiders tonight. Tech is a very good team on defense and that gets even better at home. Iowa State has been a mess on the road, allowing 84 points per game. ISU has had its last three road games be losses by at least 14 points. The public betting is slightly split for this game, but I feel good about Texas Tech covering at home.
