Also, West Virginia has been one of the more explosive teams this season.

Looking at how each of them have done against the spread recently though, West Virginia has gone 5-1 against the spread in their last six neutral site games and Oklahoma State has gone 5-0 against the spread in their last five games as an underdog.

  • Spread: Texas Tech -1.5
  • Total: 135 Points

Looking at the straight up winner in the game, Texas Tech’s college basketball odds are going into the game seen as the favorite, but bettors should not be so quick to jump on them.
