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.

Oklahoma at Texas Tech odds, lines, picks and predictions
Texas Tech 73, Oklahoma 61
There’s no value in risking six times your return on Texas Tech here. MOVE ALONG.
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).
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).
