Texas Tech will come into this match up red hot after winning 4 of their last 5 games with a 46-point thrashing of TCU last game. The Red Raiders shot an impressive 60.4% from the field while suffocating the TCU Horned Frogs to just 26.7% from the field.

Oklahoma State is currently 3-2 ATS in their last 5 games with only 2 wins straight up. Texas Tech however have performed well and are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and have also won 4 of the last 5.
Texas Tech is the far better team with the last game between these two in January resulting in a blowout victory for Texas Tech. I expect this one to be a little closer but don’t think Texas Tech will have any issues scoring and covering the number.
