Texas Tech Preview

The Texas Tech Red Raiders are 16-6 (5-4) this season after they lost to Baylor by a score of 79-73 in their last game.

UCF vs Texas Tech Betting Prediction

Both of these teams come into this game after struggling over the last couple of weeks and both sides could really use this win. Texas Tech has lost three games in a row and they have allowed 79, 75, 85, and 84 points in their last four games. UCF did get a big win against Oklahoma in their last game, but they are 1-3 in their last four road games. UCF only shoots 41.6% from the field, but they will play a Texas Tech defense that is really struggling. I think the Knights will be able to stay in this game and I like them with the points.
