Texas Tech 68, Oklahoma 63

Moneyline (ML)

PASS on the Texas Tech moneyline (-400) as there is just too much chalk involved. Play the spread in search of a greater profit margin.

Against the Spread (ATS)

OKLAHOMA (+9.5, -121) is a sharp play on the road against a Texas Tech (-9.5, +100) side which has been rather shaky lately and has both Gs Chris Clarke (undisclosed) and Kevin McCullar (concussion) listed as questionable. Both players give the Red Raiders nice depth, and if they’re unavailable then the Sooners are a slam-dunk play to stay within 9 points in a loss or win outright.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 137.5 (-106) is the way to go in this conference battle. The Under has dominated for Oklahoma lately, going 4-0 in its past four games on the road, and 7-2 in the previous nine. The Under is also 19-8 in the past 27 for the Sooners against winning teams. The Under is 4-1 in Texas Tech’s past five against winning teams, too.
