Oklahoma vs Texas Tech College Basketball Betting Preview
This season has been an absolute nightmare for the Sooners who have now lost 10 of their last 12 games. To be fair to them, they have had to face an absolute gauntlet. They have had to play 11 ranked teams this season and this game will be their 12th of the year. Oklahoma has been a solid team averaging just under 70 points per game while holding opponents to under 65 points per game. The problem with the Sooners has been a mixture of bad luck and an inability to close games out. Oklahoma has lost by one possession in four of their 10 Big 12 losses.
Texas Tech has won six of their last seven with wins over the likes of Texas at home and on the road along with a home win over Baylor. Their one loss during that span was to the Sooners by a score of 70-55. The Red Raiders had no answer for Oklahoma’s offense and were stifled offensively as well. With round two coming back at home in Texas with a chance to stay in second in the Big 12 on the line, the Red Raiders should come out guns blazing.
