Texas Tech vs Oklahoma Betting Prediction

Texas Tech comes into this game playing great basketball over the last few weeks and they are currently first in the Big 12 standings. The Red Raiders have been pretty solid on defense, but they are shooting only 46% from the field. Oklahoma has won two of their last three games, but they did just lose by 15 points to Texas at home. The Sooners are shooting 48.1% from the field and they have also been solid on defense this season. Texas Tech has started conference play very well, but I think they are in a tough spot here. Oklahoma needs a big bounce back performance and they are at home. Take the Sooners here.
