The Texas Tech Red Raiders look for another win after splitting their last eight games.

Jarrett Culver is averaging 17.6 points and 3.8 assists while Davide Moretti is averaging 10.7 points and 1.8 rebounds. Matt Mooney is the third double-digit scorer and Tariq Owens is grabbing 5.3 rebounds. The Texas Tech Red Raiders are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 70.2 percent from the free throw line. The Texas Tech Red Raiders are allowing 27.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.2 rebounds per game. The Texas Tech Red Raiders have split their last six road games.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys could also use a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are averaging 69 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 70.7 points on 41.7 percent shooting. Cameron McGriff is averaging 13.4 points and 7.5 rebounds while Lindy Waters III is averaging 12.2 points and 2.8 assists. Thomas Dziagwa is the third double-digit scorer and Michael Weathers is grabbing 2.8 rebounds. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are shooting 38.6 percent from beyond the arc and 68.7 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are allowing 34.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.7 rebounds per game. The Oklahoma State Cowboys have split their last eight home games.
The Red Raiders are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games, 4-12-2 ATS in their last 18 vs. Big 12 and 5-12-1 ATS in their last 18 games overall. The Cowboys are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 home games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. Big 12 and 4-13 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Red Raiders are 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Oklahoma State and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The over is 4-0 in Cowboys last 4 overall. The under is 23-8 in Red Raiders last 31 Wednesday games.
The home team has won eight of the last 10 meetings between Texas Tech and Oklahoma State. The Texas Tech Red Raiders were a team I considered a possible Final Four squad, but they've been highly inconsistent lately and haven't been good on the road where they're shooting under 40 percent from the field. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are experiencing one of their worst seasons in quite some time and enter this contest being outscored by an average of 7.4 points in their last five games. Still, OK State is a tough out at home regardless of the situation and could put a scare into Texas Tech if it can get some outside shots to fall. I like the value of the free points and the Cowboys, as I'm just not as confident in the Red Raiders as I once was.
