NCAAB Betting: Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys

On the whole, Oklahoma State may be the most underrated team in college basketball.  Texas Tech has a comparable record to the Cowboys.  And the Red Raiders are nationally ranked.  Yet the Cowboys are not in the top 25.  At least not yet.  Okie State is a bona fide March Madness betting contender.  OSU boasts one of the top players in the nation with Cade Cunningham.  Most important of all, the Cowboys are peaking.  The same can’t be said for the Slumping Red Raiders.  Oklahoma State has the opportunity to make a national statement Monday night.

Texas Tech at Oklahoma State CashBet Wagering Analysis

On this occasion, online sportsbook activity will split between these teams.  Gamblers recall the 2019 Final Four appearance of Texas Tech.  Nationally ranked teams with name recognition appeal to the masses.  Texas Tech coach Chris Beard is becoming a national brand.  By contrast, home court contenders are always a draw for bettors.  Sharps are impressed with Oklahoma State guard Cade Cunningham.  Okie State’s recent strong play is another draw for series gamblers. Of course, the question remains how the Cowboys will play against the nation’s top teams.  An earlier loss to Kansas this month doesn’t sell with casual gamblers.

Raiders in the Red on the Board Recently

Late on, Texas Tech has dropped six of their last seven to the spread.  Three of the Red Raiders’ last five games went under the total.  Texas Tech is 14-7 straight up, 7-14 against the spread, and 10-11 under the total.  TTU ranks 127th out of 350 teams for scoring and 22nd for points allowed.  Specifically, it is that defense that makes the Red Raiders a 2021 March Madness betting contender.
