Betting on the Texas Tech Raiders (+7)
Record: 15-4 Overall/5-2 Conference
Texas Tech had a good weekend, as the Red Raiders took down the West Virginia Mountaineers at home Saturday to the tune of a 78-65 score. Mark Adams’ team is now 5-1 straight up in its last six games, and that includes Texas Tech’s 75-67 home win over the Jayhawks on Jan. 8. What was even more impressive about that upset home victory by the Red Raiders was that they were missing key players in that game. Among them were leading scorers Terrence Shannon and Kevin McCullar. Good thing Bryson Williams and Clarence Nadolny stepped up and delivered 22 and 17 points, respectively. Well, both Shannon and McCullar are now back in action, so Texas Tech will be bringing a much-loaded lineup this time around to face Kansas in Lawrence. The Red Raiders will be banking on their stout defense that is fourth in the nation in adjusted defensive rating, with just 87.4 points allowed per 100 possessions, and a stellar offensive rebounding (13th in offensive rebounding rate).
Texas Tech is 7-3 against the spread in its last 10 games overall.
