Nevada vs. Texas Tech Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Nevada vs. Texas Tech 12/5/17

Is No. 22 Nevada in danger of taking its first loss of the season when it goes on the road to face Texas Tech tonight at 8PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, Texas Tech is favored at home tonight, as the Red Raiders are getting odds of -5 points against Nevada. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 148.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock, Texas.

Nevada is off to an 8-0 start to the season, covering the spread in all eight games. Nevada had yet to be an underdog this season. The Wolf Pack are putting up 85 points per game this season while giving up 67.1 per contest. Caleb Martin is leading Nevada with 19 points and 5.4 rebounds per game while Jordan Caroline is adding 18.4 points and 9.1 rebounds per game.

Texas Tech is coming off an 89-79 loss to Seton Hall last weekend to fall to 6-1 on the season. The Red Raiders are 3-2 against the spread right now, going 1-1 ATS at home. Texas Tech is putting up 82.7 points per game this season while allowing 60.1 per contest. Tech is being led by Keenan Evans, who is averaging 15.9 points and 3.9 assists per game while Jarrett Culver is adding 11.9 points per contest.

Bet on Nevada vs. Texas Tech

Texas Tech has won three straight meetings with Nevada, covering the spread in the lone lined meeting. The Red Raiders have also covered the spread in four of their last five against Mountain West opponents. While Nevada is off to a great start, the Wolf Pack haven’t had much of a schedule. Going on the road to face a Texas Tech team that has been battle tested will be difficult. The public betting is siding with the unbeaten Wolf Pack, but I like Texas Tech to cover.
