Oklahoma at Texas Tech odds, picks and prediction

The Oklahoma Sooners (14-13, 4-10 Big 12) and No. 9 Texas Tech Red Raiders (21-6, 10-4) battle in a Tuesday night Big 12 showdown in Lubbock, Texas. The contest at United Supermarkets Arena is slated to tip off at 8 p.m. ET. Below, we look at the Oklahoma vs. Texas Tech odds and lines, and make our expert college basketball picks, predictions and bets.

Oklahoma lost by 21 (75-54) at Iowa State Saturday. The loss marked OU’s worst since Dec. 12, 2020 (to Xavier by 22 points). The Sooners head into this tilt in Lubbock having lost three in a row and six of their last seven. Opponents have shot 50.5% over that seven-game stretch.

The Raiders sport the best defense in the Big 12, and that defense has helped propel them to a 6-1 record since Jan. 29. Over that stretch, Texas Tech has held foes to a 38.1% mark from the floor. Included in those victories of late were games against solid offensive teams Texas (twice) and Baylor. But the lone loss was to these Sooners: OU defeated TTU 70-55 Feb. 9.

Against the spread

The Sooners are 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a straight-up loss. In this series, the home team is 11-3-1 ATS over the last 15 meetings.

OU has gone just 2-7 over nine road games this season. The Red Raiders are 8-1 ATS in their last nine home games against opponents with road winning percentage of less-than .400.

TTU’s offense sometimes gets forgotten, but the Raiders can fill it. They’ve been a solid play candidate the last few weeks and continue to be one in this revenge spot at home. BACK THE RED RAIDERS -10.5 (-105).

Over/Under

Oklahoma has played some slow-paced games of late and was able to dictate the tempo in meeting No. 1. Look for a swing the other way in this one. TTU has the offensive rebounding, turnover-transition game and ability to get to the charity stripe.

TAKE THE OVER 129.5 (-115).
