West Virginia vs. Texas Tech College Basketball Prediction

The home side is 5-1 against the spread in the last six meetings between these two teams but Texas Tech is just 1-4 at the betting window in its last five games overall and 2-10 against the number in its last 12 games as a favorite. With West Virginia 4-10 against the spread in its last 14 road games, I’m not touching the side tonight.

Instead, I’ll be taking the over, which is 7-3 in the Red Raiders’ last 10 games overall, is 6-2 in their last eight games when favored and is 6-1 in their last seven games following an ATS loss. On the other side, the over is 4-0 in the Mountaineers’ last 14 games overall, is 4-0 in their last four games as an underdog and is a perfect 9-0 in their last nine games versus an opponent with a winning percentage above .600.
