Texas Tech Red Raiders
The over is 18-8 in the last 26 times the Red Raiders have played on Saturday but the under is 4-1 in their last five games following a win of more than 20 points.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
The over has been profitable in recent OK State games, going 6-2-1 in the Cowboys’ last nine games overall. The over is also 13-6 in their last 19 games coming off an ATS win.
Backing Texas Tech when 80% of the public is backing the Red Raiders makes me apprehensive but the Cowboys have struggled both on the hardwood and at the betting window. Oklahoma State is just 1-4 against the spread in its last five home games, is 8-17-1 against the number in its last 26 games as a home dog and has dropped six of its last eight games at the window when listed as an underdog. Meanwhile, the Red Raiders have covered in four of their last five games overall and in nine of their last 13 games after allowing less than 50 points in their previous contest.
