The Iowa State Cyclones and Texas Tech Red Raiders face off on Thursday in a Big 12 college basketball showdown at the T-Mobile Center. When these two teams faced off on January 18th it was Texas Tech that won 72-60.
Bryson Williams was the top player for Texas Tech scoring 16 points and grabbing three rebounds. Caleb Grill was the top player for Iowa State scoring 17 points.
Iowa State comes into this game with a 20-11 record overall and they have gone 17-14 against the spread. In the last game against Baylor, Iowa State made a late comeback, but they still lost by seven points. Iowa State is averaging 67.3 points while their defense is giving up 62.7 points per game. Izaiah Brockington has been the top player this season for Iowa State averaging 17.5 points while shooting 46.9 percent from the field and 39.2 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Texas Tech Red Raiders who sit with a 23-8 record overall and they have gone 20-11 against the spread. In the last game against Oklahoma State, Texas Tech’s offense could only score 51 points and that led to the one point defeat. Forward Bryson Williams has been the best player for Texas Tech averaging 14 points while shooting 54.4 percent from the field and 42.7 percent from the field. As a team the Red Raiders are averaging 72.4 points while their defense is giving up 60.7 points per game.
Texas Tech is 1-7 against the spread in their last eight games played on a neutral site as a favorite. The over is 6-1 in Iowa State’s last seven eight games played on a neutral site. The under is 6-1 in Texas Tech’s last seven games played on Thursday.
Texas Tech has had a good season, but at times they have played down to the competition and that was an issue in the last game. I expect the offense for Texas Tech is going to be a problem in this game, and that will allow Iowa State to keep it close. Back Iowa State against the spread.
