Texas Tech vs Louisville Game Info

2022-23 NCAA College Basketball Regular Season Game
No. 21 Texas Tech Red Raiders (3-1) vs. Louisville Cardinals (0-4)
Date: Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2022
Time: 2:30 p.m. ET
Venue: Lahaina Civic Center — Maui, HI
Coverage: ESPN2

The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season continues on Tuesday, Nov. 22 with more Maui Jim Maui Invitational action, including a clash between the No. 21 Texas Tech Red Raiders and Louisville Cardinals.

Despite being tied after the first half, Texas Tech couldn't keep things close against then-No. 10 Creighton, eventually succumbing to a 76-65 final score. Meanwhile, Louisville's tournament-opening matchup didn't go much better, getting blown out, 80-54, by ranked Arkansas.

Can Texas Tech solidify its top-25 status with a victory Tuesday afternoon? Or will Louisville pull off an upset to win its first game of the season?

Texas Tech enters this contest as the clear favorite on the moneyline and spread per FanDuel Sportsbook's odds. This 2:30 p.m. ET clash also features an over/under of 129.5 points, which is among the lowest of Tuesday's projected totals.

Texas Tech vs Louisville Prediction & Pick

Even though both schools last on Monday, Texas Tech at least looked respectable at times. On the other hand, Louisville finished its defeat with abysmal .364/.333/.720 shooting splits while committing 22 turnovers. Say what you want about the Red Raiders, but at least they only coughed up the ball nine times against Creighton.

It's also tough to trust a winless Cardinals squad that is averaging 63.0 PPG (T-No. 289) this season. With Texas Tech being a top-25 school at the moment, it's incredibly tough to imagine Louisville standing much of a chance. Expect the Red Raiders to get the job done.

Final Score Prediction: Texas Tech 74 | Louisville: 60

Texas Tech vs Louisville Best Bet

After keeping it close with Creighton at times, I expect Texas Tech not to break a sweat against Louisville. The Cardinals are operating at a minus-7.3 point differential this season, whereas the Red Raiders are plus-11.5 in that regard. With Louisville also being 6-13 against the spread in its last 19 games, I'm backing Texas Tech as the -13.5 favorite.

Bet: Texas Tech -13.5 (-110)
