Head to Head
When looking at the head-to-head statistics for these two teams, Texas Tech has a better overall record at 15-12, while Oklahoma is 13-14. The Sooners have struggled recently, winning just two of their last 10 games, and they are 1-5 in their last six games.
Oklahoma has not been kind to sports bettors lately, going 2-4 against the spread in their last six games. However, they have been successful in games played on Tuesday, going 7-1 against the spread in their last eight Tuesday games. Additionally, they are 5-0 against the spread in their last five Tuesday home games.
Oklahoma's Yaya Keita is out for the season due to a shin injury.
Texas Tech has been a very inconsistent team this season, but they have won five of their last 10 games. Their offense is not particularly strong, but their defense ranks 23rd in the nation. Oklahoma, on the other hand, has struggled on both ends of the court, ranking 147th in scoring and 165th in points allowed.
Given Oklahoma’s struggles, the Red Raiders could easily come out on top in this game. But, the total seems to be the better bet here. In their last seven games, Oklahoma has gone over the total six times, while in their last 10 games, Texas Tech has gone over the total six times. Moreover, the total has gone under in all of the last 10 matchups between these two teams. Therefore, we predict that the total will go over 137.5 points.
Pick: Over 137.5
