Pick: Your pick @ -1 -110 Oklahoma St.
Evaluation:Feb 20 – 9:30 PM
Reason For Pick:
Texas Tech has been a major surprise this season as the Red Raiders come into tonight’s game at Oklahoma State with a 16-9 record. Texas Tech is on a 3-game winning streak, but those three wins set the team up in an awful spot for tonight’s game. The Red Raiders are in a terrible situational spot because they come in off three consecutive SU wins as underdogs with their last being a 65-63 home win over Oklahoma. The Red Raiders beat Oklahoma State 63-61 in overtime on their home court earlier this season. Texas Tech actually trailed that game by 7 points with six minutes left to play before rallying back and winning in overtime. Texas Tech’s defense is giving up 75.6 points per game on 45.6% shooting from the field and 41.5% shooting from three-point land on the road this season.
Oklahoma State returns home off a 27-point blowout loss at Kansas on Monday night. That game can be easily dismissed as Kansas was focused on revenge after getting embarrassed 86-67 by Oklahoma State earlier in the season. Oklahoma State is now back at home, and we expect a strong bounce back performance tonight. The Cowboys play outstanding defense, especially on their home court where they only give up 62.1 points per game on 40.3% shooting from the field and 33.6% shooting from three-point land. Oklahoma State’s offense has been much better at home where they are averaging 70.6 points per game. Oklahoma State is catching Texas Tech at the perfect time, so we’ll back the Cowboys in this game on Saturday night.
9* Play OKLAHOMA STATE (-).
