Texas Tech vs Baylor Betting Prediction

Here is our Texas Tech vs Baylor Betting prediction.

Baylor (22-8 SU, 17-9-3 ATS, 11-6 B12) plays Texas Tech (21-9 SU, 13-16-1 ATS, 10-7 B12) in Lubbock on Saturday at 6 p.m. ET from United Supermarkets Arena. The game is a Big 12 matchup.

At 11-6, Baylor is in third place in the Big 12, tied for fourth with Kansas and Texas Tech.

On February 6, these two teams played in Waco. The Bears won 79–73 as a 6-point favorite. RayJ Dennis scored 21 points and had five assists for the Bears. Joe Toussaint scored 18 points and had six assists for the Red Raiders.

Baylor Bears Betting Prediction

First, we have the Texas Tech vs Baylor Betting prediction for the Bears.

Baylor has won an average of 25 games per year for the last five years, so going 22-8 at this point in the season is a bit of a letdown. They have won five of the last seven games and three in a row coming into this one. The Bears beat the Horned Frogs 62–54 on February 26.

Two days later, they beat Kansas 82–74 and then beat Texas 93–85 at home on Monday night, which was also Senior Night. In the first 25 minutes, they had a hard time against the Longhorns. But, near the end of the game, they went on a 21-2 run and held the Longhorns to 0-11 from the field.

Jalen Bridges scored 32 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the Bears. Dennis scored 16 points and shared eight assists. Baylor made 53% of their shots from the field and 69% (9 of 13) of their long range shots. Also, they made 34 out of 42 free throws, which is 81%.

The NCAA Net Rankings put Baylor 13th, and Joe Lunardi’s most recent Bracketology report puts them third in the West. The Bears’ offense is very strong; they score 82 points per game on average and shoot 49% from the field (18th) and 40.3% from long range (3rd).

Their great rookie leader is Ja’Kobe Walter, who scores 14.7 points per game and grabs 4.5 rebounds while shooting 38.2% overall and 33.5% from three-point range. Dennis makes 49.8% of his shots and 37% of his long-range shots, adding 13.5 points and 6.8 assists.

This season, the Bears’ defense has been bad. They give up 71.3 points per game and 45.4% shooting (33.6% 3pt). Topping off the list, they are 19th in Rebound Rate with 54.4%. The average of 11.1 points per game Langston Love hasn’t played since February 20. He might not be able to play in this game.

Texas Tech Red Raiders Betting Prediction

Second, we have the Texas Tech vs Baylor Betting prediction for the Red Raiders.

He said that the Red Raiders are in the NCAA Tournament as the 8th seed in the Midwest. The NCAA Net Rankings put them at number 36, but they have lost four of eight games against Quad 1 teams. If they win here, they will definitely be in the tournament, and their placing might go up.

This would also help their Big 12 Tournament seeding. In their last two games, Texas Tech beat Oklahoma State and West Virginia by more than 10 points each. It wasn’t a great win, but losing to those teams could have hurt their hopes of making the NCAA because they had lost three of their previous four games before going to Morgantown.

They beat the Cowboys on the road on Tuesday, with Pop Isaacs scoring 19 points and Darrion Williams scoring 18. At the break, the Red Raiders were ahead 38–17, and OSU could only make 13 of 14 shots from long range in the first half.

In terms of total rank, Texas Tech is 30th. In terms of adjusted offensive efficiency, it is 21st, and in terms of adjusted defensive efficiency, it is 64th. It’s been hard for Isaacs to shoot the ball, but he may have found his groove against the Cowboys, going 7 for 11 from the field. He scores 15.9 points per game, but only 35.3% from the field and 29.7% from long range. He also gives out 3.6 assists per game.

Out of the shots he takes, Toussaint makes 41.6% (31.1% 3pt) and scores 12.4 points and 4 assists. Each game, the Red Raiders score 75.9 points, making 45.4% of their shots and 36.4% of their long-range shots. 42.7% of the shots they let in are from inside the arc, and 32.5% are from long range. With a 50.5% comeback rate, they are 155th in the league. Warren Washington, a center, might not be able to play today because of a foot injury. He hasn’t played since February 12.

Texas Tech vs Baylor Betting Pick

Even though this is a good deal, I’m going with Texas Tech because they need it more right now. The first time they played Baylor, they were tough, and they are 14-2 at home. When the Red Raiders play at home, they shoot 36.4% from long range.

A guy like Isaacs, who has been having a rough patch lately, could use some good home cooking. They only make 43.4% of their shots from the field and 33.4% of their three-point shots when they’re away. When it comes to defense, Texas Tech is really good; they only let in 29.2% of three-point shots. The Red Raiders should win their last home game.
