Texas vs Texas Tech ATS Pick: Texas Tech -3

Both teams are coming off losses with Texas Tech losing by 14 points on the road to unranked UCF to fall out of the top 25 in the national polls. Texas was no match for No. 9 Kansas as the Longhorns led for less than a minute in a 19-point loss.

Texas has lost nine of its last 12 road games. The Longhorns have covered the college basketball lines in just four of their last 12 games against Big 12 teams and it is hard to have much confidence in Texas heading into this matchup.

Texas Tech is already without third-leading scorer Devan Cambridge and now Chance McMillian, who had 11 points and five rebounds in the first game against the Longhorns, is questionable.

Texas vs Texas Tech Over/Under Pick: Under 144½

Typically, these are two of the better defensive teams in the Big 12. However, Texas comes into the game 89th in scoring defense and Texas Tech ranks 98th. The Longhorns rank 53rd in defensive efficiency according to the Pomeroy college basketball ratings. Texas Tech is 75th in defensive efficiency. Keep that in mind when looking at the best college basketball bets today.

The teams combined for 143 points when they played last month. Don’t be surprised if they struggle to reach that mark in the rematch as this game could be headed under the 144½-point total.

Texas vs Texas Tech Player Prop Pick: Pop Isaacs to score 17+ Points (-104)

Isaacs has been held under 10 points in four of his last five games and he was just 3 of 12 from the field in the loss to UCF.

Perhaps seeing the Longhorns will get Texas Tech’s top scorer going again considering that he had 21 points the last time the teams met. He is a solid pick for player prop bets.
