Roadrunners suffocate Mustangs

College Basketball Betting Trends

CSU Bakersfield

The Roadrunners are 7-21 ATS in their last 28 games overall. Cal State Bakersfield is 1-6 ATS in its last seven road games. 

Texas Tech

The Red Raiders are 4-1 ATS in their last five Sunday games. Texas Tech is 1-5 ATs in its last six home games.


The Red Raiders are a mystery of sorts as they have the victory over previously top-ranked Louisville but have also lost their three other games against top 100 opponents. Texas Tech lost its best player from last season to the NBA in Jarrett Culver and is still trying to carve out its offensive identity. The good news is that the Roadrunners aren't the stiffest challenge today, but with their conference opener on deck I suspect Texas Tech might go through the motions here.
