Desi Rodriguez is putting up 17.8 points and 4 rebounds per game while Angel Delgado is adding 14 points and 9.3 rebounds per contest.

Texas Tech is putting up 83.3 points per game this season while allowing 55.3 per contest. Keenan Evans is putting up 15 points and 3.5 assists per game to lead the team while Jarrett Culver is adding 11 points per contest.
Texas Tech won the last meeting with Seton Hall back in 2010. However, Texas Tech is just 6-16 against the spread in its last 22 games at a neutral site and 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 games against Big East opponents. The Red Raiders have a tough job of going to MSG to face the Pirates, a team that has plenty of experience in this venue. The public betting is slightly with Texas Tech, but I think Seton Hall finds a way to cover.
