TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION MONDAY, FEBRUARY 13TH
#880 TEXAS TECH (+3′) over Texas at 9 PM EST
Off Saturday’s home win and cover over Kansas State, Texas Tech will welcome Texas to United Supermarkets Arena and pick up a huge revenge payday. The Longhorns make the trek to Lubbock off a massive 94-60 home win and cover over the Mountaineers and this will be a difficult encore for interim head coach Rodney Terry and his players.
Back on January 14th, Tech (+8.5) visited Austin and dropped a hard fought 72-70 decision to the ‘Horns. Even with that blemish, the Red Raiders own a respectable 9-3 SU and 8-4 ATS record in the last 12 meetings. Additionally, when playing at home and hitting the hardwood with confidence off a straight up win, Texas Tech owns a magnificent 20-0 SU and 14-5-1 ATS record. In this run priced as an underdog or a short favorite of -9.5 or less, head coach Mark Adams and his boys improve to a spotless 6-0 SU and ATS. Finally, in their last 25 priced as a home pup, the Red Raiders own a reliable 15-10 ATS tally including an elite 13-3 ATS provided they hold a team won/loss percentage less than .700.
Texas is locked into one of its worst wagering roles too. When storming the court off a blowout win of 20 points or more, the Longhorns have come up short posting a woeful 11-19 ATS record including a stiff 5-16 ATS provided they are favored by -3 or more. Also, in Big 12 play arriving off the comforts of a home game, UT holds a feeble 6-16-1 ATS mark including a nasty 3-14-1 ATS provided its opponent is not off a blowout win of 14 points or more. Lastly, after scoring 90 points or higher in their previous game, Texas sports a soft 7-19-1 ATS tally in its next contest including a horrible 3-16 ATS provided the Longhorns are favored.
The Red Raiders have quietly won seven of the last 10 meetings in this series in Lubbock and they are in prime position to pull off this upset. Take Texas Tech. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
