Oklahoma vs Texas Tech Prediction & Pick

Both the Sooners and Red Raiders are better than their records indicate due to the fact that they are stuck in a Big 12 conference full of talented teams. All it may take for them to get back on the NCAA Tournament bubble would be making a run in the upcoming conference tournament in March.

Earning a win on Tuesday would be huge, too. Oklahoma has an edge heading into this one as Texas Tech has only won two of its eight road games this season. The Red Raiders shoot 43.8% from the floor in away games and now has to face a defense that allows just 64.0 points per home game.

Back the Sooners to complete a sweep after beating the Red Raiders by a score of 68-63 in January.

Final Score Prediction: Oklahoma: 72 | Texas Tech: 69

Oklahoma vs Texas Tech Best Bet

Oklahoma's defense has struggled as of late, allowing at least 70 points in seven of the last eight games. The Sooners have also averaged 69.5 points per game during that span, which has helped the total to hit the over six times. The over has cashed in seven of their last nine home games, too.

The total has hit the over in five of Texas Tech's last seven games overall as well as in four of its last five away games. The under did hit in the first matchup between these squads, but they combined to go 11-of-45 from beyond the arc (24.4%). More three-pointers should drop the second time around.

Bet: Over 135.5 Points (-105)
