Our Texas vs Texas Tech Betting Pick for Today - Betting on the Game(Texas -3.5)

Red Raiders have a home record of 10-4 and lost by just two points to Texas on the road earlier in the season. Isaac scored 23 points in that game and may not be able make it to the rematch. Texas is currently 4-3 on the road this season, with three wins in its four previous games. This includes a win against Kansas State. The ninth-ranked defense at TTU should be dominated by Texas' top scoring offense. Turnovers will be the key to the game. Texas Tech is ranked 9th in Big 12 turnovers. The Longhorns are ranked third in turnovers.

Over Under Texas vs Texas Tech (145.5)

With the over under in this game at 145.5, I look back on the previous matchup this season. That game ended with a 72-70 final score and 142 points total. I think that the over is the bet here. Texas and Texas Tech are average at best defenses, so I think the best play is to bet the over.
