West Virginia vs Texas Tech Prediction, Odds and Best Bets

Published on

West Virginia is on the road playing Texas Tech at the United Supermarkets Arena stadium on Wednesday, 1/25/2023 @ 7:00pm EST. Texas Tech -1.25 was the opening favorite and current line is Texas Tech -3.5.

United Supermarkets Arena will host the West Virginia Mountaineers and Texas Tech Red Raiders on Wednesday. There will be a 7:00 p.m. start. The spread favors TTU by 3.5 points, while the total is 142.5 points. Despite an 11-8 SU and 9-10 ATS record, the Mountaineers were defeated by Texas last week. During this season, they have recorded 1-4 away from home. As a result, the Red Raiders were defeated by Kansas State on Sunday, 10-9. In the last seven games, they have lost.

In spite of their record, the Mountaineers are a capable team

It has been a rough start to the Conference 12 season for the Mountaineers, who have lost six of their past seven games. As predicted by the conference's preseason poll, they would finish ninth. West Virginia led Texas by two at halftime but could not maintain its lead against the seventh-ranked team. A 43-33 Longhorn win led to a second-half Longhorn victory over the Mountaineers. Despite outshooting Texas 29-26 and committing 20 turnovers, West Virginia lost the rebounding battle 29-26. 69.2 points were surrendered by West Virginia on 43.9 percent shooting, including 33.3 percent from deep. In terms of defensive efficiency, it ranks 43rd, and in terms of the assist-per-turnover ratio (1.07), it ranks 115th.

Are Texas Tech's chances of winning good?

Despite being in the basement of the Big 12, Texas Tech is working hard to climb out. So far, the Red Raiders have lost all seven games in the Mountain 12. In its latest game, Texas Tech shot 23-for-71 (32.4%) from the field and 7-for-29 (24.1%) from three. Despite winning the rebounding battle, the Red Raiders couldn't hold on in the second half. Texas Tech was outscored 40-25 by Kansas State after halftime. The Longhorns surrendered 66.5 points on 41.7 percent shooting, including 32.9 percent from three-point range. It ranks 51st in defensive efficiency and 190th in assist-per-turnover ratio (0.97).

A winning straight-up team has a 2-13-1 ATS record in the last 16 games for the Red Raiders. My money is on the Mountaineers in this Big 12 matchup. Coach Bob Huggins, aka "Huggy Bear", is expected to coach WVU in this spot. He leads a Mountaineers team that ranks top-75 in PPG and FG%, with a +2.9 rebounding margin. At the very least, they will cover the spread against an underachieving Red Raiders team.
