#614 TEXAS TECH (-16′) over Eastern Washington at 8 PM EST
Checking in with a little steam off a pair of straight up wins over Georgetown and Nicholls State, Texas Tech will have no trouble pounding this visiting Eastern Washington squad. The Eagles check in off a heartbreaking one-point road loss at South Dakota State and this trip to Lubbock will be a very difficult encore.

Inside the friendly confines of the United Supermarkets Arena, the Red Raiders have been in a zone posting a proud 26-0 SU and 17-8-1 ATS record in their last 26 battles. In this run fighting a foe that arrives without steam off a straight up loss, Texas Tech holds an elite 12-0 SU and 9-2-1 ATS mark. Equally impressive, as a non-conference host competing against an opponent that scoots in off a straight up loss, head coach Mark Adams and his players own a strong 28-15-1 ATS tally including a highly profitable 27-9-1 ATS provided they hold a team won/loss percentage of .600 or better.

Respect is given to an Eastern Washington team that owns a stunning 30-11 ATS mark in its last 41 true road games. However, this is going to be a tough statistical matchup for the Eagles. So far this season, EWU is averaging 66.3 points per game on 42.7 percent shooting (29.8 percent from behind the arc). In comparison, Tech is averaging 72.5 points per game on 48.1 percent from the floor and 35.5 percent from downtown. To make matters worse, this will be Eastern’s third consecutive road battle. In this particular setting, head coach David Riley and his troops own a pitiful 3-26 SU and 10-17-1 ATS record.

Under the direction of Coach Adams, the Red Raiders have never lost at home (23-0 SU). Chalk up another dub and cover here. Take Texas Tech. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
