The Texas Tech Red Raiders and the Oklahoma Sooners meet in college basketball action from Chesapeake Energy Arena on Tuesday.
Texas Tech is currently 18-9 on the year. Since their most recent loss—73-70 at Oklahoma State—Texas Tech has won their last pair of games versus Kansas State and Iowa State.
In the win over Iowa State, Texas Tech’s lead scorer was Jahmi-us Ramsey with 25 points, seven assists and five rebounds. Kyler Edwards posted 19 points with four assists and five rebounds there, and TJ Holyfield was also in double-digits with 10 points and three rebounds.
Over on the Oklahoma side, they’re 16-11 this year. The Sooners are on a three-game losing streak right now, falling to Kansas, Baylor and Oklahoma State in succession during that time.
In the loss to Oklahoma State, Oklahoma’s Austin Reaves led the team on 24 points with seven rebounds and two assists. Both De’Vion Harmon and Kristian Doolittle had 11 points apiece there, combining for two assists and nine rebounds as well.
Oklahoma is 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 Tuesday games and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 after an ATS loss. Oklahoma is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games and the under is 15-7 in their last 22 Tuesday games.
Meanwhile, Texas Tech is 4-1 ATS in their last five after a straight-up win and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 after an ATS win. The under is 7-2-1 in Texas Tech’s last 10 Tuesday games and the over is 4-0 in their last four overall.
Texas Tech had the misfortune of running into a tough OK State team at home a couple weeks back, but they’ve bounced back well with a seven-point win over Kansas State and a 30-point road win over Iowa State. It seems okay to trust Texas Tech again right now.
As for Oklahoma, they haven’t had great results lately against the tougher teams, but they’ve proven they can surprise from time to time. Still, I’m feeling like Texas Tech is the safer pick here. The line is a little tight but it still looks okay right now.
