Coach K and Duke Press On Against Texas Tech at 2022 Sweet 16 Betting Match

Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. Duke Blue Devils CashBet Wagering Analysis

The end is near for Duke Blue Devils head coach Mike Krzyzewski.  Specifically, the 2022 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament will be the last one for the man known as Coach K.  Now, in his 42nd season, Krzyzewski is heading off into the sunset of retirement.  Of course, there is nothing Coach K would love more than to go out a March Madness betting champion.  And with a run to the Sweet Sixteen, a national title or at least a Final Four berth is a realistic possibility.  Last week Duke impressed everyone with strong performances.

Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. Duke Blue Devils CashBet Wagering Analysis

On the whole, there is considerable sportsbook odds interest in Duke and the Mike Krzyzewski coaching angle.  In an era of few name brands in college basketball, Coach K may be the biggest marquee man.  This edition is not the most talented Duke Team that Coach K has ever put on the hardwood.  But Duke has enough to beat anyone they face.

To show, the Texas Tech Red Raiders have a season record of 27-9 straight up, 22-14 against the spread, and 17-19 over/under the total.  The Red Raiders have 2022 March Madness betting national metrics of 144th for scoring offense, 94th for offensive rebounds, 14th for points allowed, and 8th for defensive rebounds.

At the beginning, forward Bryson Williams leads with 13.9 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.  Guard Terrence Shannon Jr adds 10.8 points per contest.  Also, Guard Davin Warren, Kevin Obanor, Kevin McCullar, and Adonis Arms are averaging above 8.5 points per game.

Texas Tech head coach Mark Adams was an assistant under Chris Beard from 2016 through 2021.  Adams made his bones as a junior college coach at Howard College, where he won a national championship.  He was inducted into the NJCAA Hall of Fame in 2020.  Most important of all, Adams showed that there could be a successful Texas Tech program without Beard.
