On the other side of this matchup is the Omaha Mavericks who sit with a 1-3 record and they have had some major issues.

In this game if they want any chance to keep it close, they are going to need the defense to be good.
Texas Tech is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven home games. Omaha is 1-6-1 against the spread in their last eight games played on Tuesday. Texas Tech is 1-8 against the spread in their last nine games played on Tuesday. The over is 4-1 in Texas Tech’s last 5 games following a straight up win of more than 20 points.
Omaha’s offense is an issue, and it’s going to let them down again in this game. Look for Texas Tech to score at least 80 points and this game is going to get ugly early. Back Texas Tech to cover the spread.
