Seventh-ranked Texas Tech hosts 23rd-ranked Oklahoma on Tuesday night at United Supermarkets Arena. The Sooners have now lost three straight and look very lost on the defensive side of the ball. The Red Raiders have now won six straight, an impressive feat in Big 12 action. Oklahoma has won five of the last seven meetings against Texas Tech.

Sooners defense struggles again, have no chance at Iowa State

Both teams met early in Big 12 action this season and Oklahoma took them down 75-65. Since then, the Sooners have dropped six of their following nine games. Their most recent defeat was an 88-80 loss at Iowa State. They were down by as many as 17 points in the first half and Trae Young (29.5 ppg, 9.4 apg) struggled mightily in the session. He bounced back, as did the team, and he tied a team-high 22 points, but the comeback attempt fell short.

Young did register a double-double that also featured 11 assists, but he turned the ball over six times and went just 1-for-8 from downtown. He also made just 33 percent of his shots. While he’s clearly a gifted player, the team around him just can’t stop other opponents. This season on average, they allow 82 points per game.

Red Raiders defense throttles the Wildcats for sixth straight W

Texas Tech is doing something that no other team’s been able to do in Big 12 play — win consistently. They’ve rattled off six straight so far, the latest being an impressive 66-47 showing at Kansas State. The Wildcats have been up and down in conference action, but their offense was downright embarrassing at home in this effort. The Red Raiders were just one-point favorites but easily hit cover by holding KSU to just 20 points in the last 20 minutes.

The Wildcats were limited to just 28.9 percent shooting and converted just 3-of-17 3-pointers. Tommy Hamilton IV for TTU made all four attempts from downtown himself. Keenan Evans (18.4 ppg) was the best scorer in the game with 19 points on 6-of-12 shooting. He boosted that total making all six free throw attempts and he also had a game-high five steals for good measure — the entire Wildcat squad had seven.

Trends

Oklahoma is:

  • 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games
  • 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games against teams with a winning SU record

Texas Tech is:

  • 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after a SU win
  • The home team, who are 7-0 ATS in the last 7 meetings in this matchup

Neither team probably expected their season to end up here since they last met in early January. The Sooners cannot be bailed out by a young player regardless of how talented he is, and the Red Raiders defense looks downright impressive in recent games.

Pick: Texas Tech

As you’d expect, the over has been hitting frequently for Oklahoma as the defense isn’t stopping anyone. Tech has kept their last two opponents to just 105 total points combined, which has led to them obviously hitting consecutive unders. Expect that to continue for another game.

  • Under is 7-1 in Sooners last 8 Tuesday games
  • Under is 12-4 in Red Raiders last 16 vs. Big 12

Pick: Under
