The Texas Longhorns and the Texas Tech Red Raiders meet in college basketball action from the United Supermarkets Arena on Monday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Texas is listed as a 3.5-point road favorite with a ML price of -188. The total for this game is set at 145.5 points.


No new names have popped up on Texas’ injury report while Texas Tech’s added Daniel Batcho as questionable with a lower body injury and Pop Isaacs is questionable for this game with an ankle injury.

Matchup History

Texas’ 72-70 win back on January 14th, 2023, snapped Texas Tech’s two-game head-to-head win streak over the Longhorns in this matchup.


Texas is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games following an ATS win and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a win by 20 or more points while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games following an ATS win. Texas Tech is 4-11-1 ATS in their last 16 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 9-1 in their last 10 games following a win.


I get the case to be made for Texas Tech after a strong showing against Kansas State at home last time out and the Red Raiders have played their best by far at home this season. However, I’m worried that Texas Tech gave their best shot to K-State and I’m wondering if they’ll be able to sustain that energy for back-to-back games. Texas can’t afford a bad performance here if they still want to have any hope of a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament and I think they deliver on a solid road win in this game. Give me the Longhorns laying the points.
