Kansas vs Texas Tech Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks
Although Texas Tech isn’t ranked, they are putting up stats just as impressive as the Jayhawks. Texas Tech averages two more points per game while giving up two less points per game this season. Although they are coming off a tough loss to TCU on the road, their offense scored over 100 points in the three games prior.
Kansas hadn’t even been tested for a few games until they found themselves in a dogfight against Oklahoma State on New Year’s Eve. Kansas would come back to win 69-67 after being down 15 at the end of the first half. Kansas’ offense is the key to their success, but they have struggled as of late, scoring under 70 points in their last two contests.
This may be Kansas’ toughest test since the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament back in November. With both teams sporting good defenses and Kansas struggling from the field as of late, the under should hit in what is sure to be a hectic atmosphere in Lubbock.
Our college basketball betting Kansas vs Texas Tech prediction tonight will be UNDER 139.5 at BetOnline.
For what it’s worth, the ESPN Matchup Predictor gives Texas Tech a 58.2% chance to win.
