The #18 Texas Tech Red Raiders look for a road win versus the Oklahoma Sooners in Saturday college basketball action.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders bounced back from a loss to Kansas with an 81-50 rout of West Virginia as an 11.5 point home favorite.

Texas Tech had zero problem with a 36-21 lead after 20 minutes and never taking their foot off the gas with a 52.6%-23.1% shooting edge.

Brandone Francis led the Red Raiders rout with 16 points followed by Matt Mooney with 12 points and four helpers.

Davide Moretti gave Texas Tech eleven points and four assists while Deshawn Corprew netted ten points with three yanks.

The Oklahoma Sooners are looking at a three game skid following a narrow 75-74 loss to Iowa State on Tuesday as a 2.5 point home dog.

Oklahoma matched the #16 Cyclones basket for basket with Iowa State managing a 10-8 advantage from long range which was the difference.

Kristian Doolittle kept the Sooners within reach of the upset with 19 points and nine rebounds with Brady Manek netting 16 points.

Oklahoma saw ten points and four pulls from Christian Jones followed by Rashard Odomes and Matt Freeman with nine and six points.

Texas Tech Red Raiders are 7-18-2 ATS in their last 27 vs. Big 12 and Texas Tech Red Raiders are 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games following a straight up win and Texas Tech Red Raiders are 4-12-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall. Oklahoma Sooners are 16-5-2 ATS in their last 23 games overall and Oklahoma Sooners are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games and Oklahoma Sooners are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 home games. 
Home team is 8-0-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings and Texas Tech Red Raiders are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Oklahoma.

There doesn’t seem to be a ton of difference here and the spread says as much. I believe Oklahoma on their home floor is the right side…

Pick:
Oklahoma +1.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
