Texas Tech vs Iowa State Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks
Texas Tech has been on a slump to start Big 12 play, losing their first three games by a total of just 14 points. They have played solid opposition as well playing on the road at TCU before two games at home against Kansas and Oklahoma. The Red Raiders are right in the thick of things thanks to their solid defense but can’t find the offense to get the job done.
Iowa State has yet to lose in Big 12 play thanks to two close road wins and a home thumping of then #12 Baylor. Much like Texas Tech, the Cyclones have relied on their defense and have given up just 63 points per game over those three games and have had just enough offense to get the win.
Both teams have top-tier defenses and have been in extremely close games so far in Big 12 play. The spread is seven points in a game that will likely be an extremely low-scoring affair. With Iowa State not able to pull away recently and Texas Tech losing by the slimmest of margins, bet on Texas Tech to cover a sizable spread.
Our college basketball betting Texas Tech vs Iowa State prediction tonight will be Texas Tech +7 at BetOnline.
For what it’s worth, the ESPN Matchup Predictor gives Iowa State a 71.3% chance to win.
