College Basketball Betting Trends
The Horned Frogs are 1-5 ATS in their last six Monday games. Texas Christian is 0-5 ATS in its last five games overall.
The Red Raiders are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games following an ATS win. The home team is 5-14-1 ATS in the last 20 meetings.
The issue here is how big the spread is here as covering a double-digit spread no matter the venue is not the easiest task. The Horned Frogs also already defeated Texas Tech 65-54 at home, so asking a complete reversal for Texas Tech here seems a bit steep of a task. Texas Christian is fairly good defensively and have the ability to make a game ugly, so I'm banking on the visitors giving Texas Tech another difficult challenge tonight.
