Texas Tech Red Raiders Betting Prediction

First, we have the Texas Tech vs Houston Betting prediction for the Red Raiders.

The Mean Green shooting percentage is 45.5 percent, which places them 126th, and they make 36.3% of their shots from beyond the arc, which places them 59th. They get 75.9 points per game, which places them 113th in the league. The standings indicate that TTU holds the 18th spot in terms of free throw percentage, with a percentage of 77.5 percent. Additionally, they have a turnover rate of 10.8 per game, 31.5 rebounds, and 15.0 assists a game.

164th in terms of rebounds per game, they allow 31.2 per game, and 93rd in terms of points per game, they allow 69.0 per game. Furthermore, they allowed their opponents to shoot 42.8 percent, which is 119th, including 32.3 percent from three-point range, which is 103rd within the league. TTU currently ranks 286th in the nation in terms of blocks with 2.6, 204th in terms of steals with 6.2, and 26th in terms of fouls committed with 14.8.

According to KenPom, Texas Tech is the 23rd greatest school in the United States of America today. According to these statistics, the Red Raiders fall into the 25th spot for offensive efficiency, the 39th spot for defensive efficiency, and the 241st spot for pace (after taking into account games that were missed).

Houston Cougars Betting Prediction

Now we have the Texas Tech vs Houston Betting prediction for the Cougars.

As a result of shooting 43.8 percent (240th), Houston averages 74.2 points per game, which places them in the 165th position. Their percentage of shots made from beyond the arc is 34.8 percent, which places them in the 135th position. UH has a free throw percentage of 68.7%, which places it in the 298th position. Additionally, the team averages 35.0 rebounds, 13.1 assists, and 8.7 turnovers per game.

The Cougars have the highest point average in the nation, allowing 56.9 points per game to their opponents. The average number of boards they allow each game is 29.0, which places them 37th among all teams in the country. The University of Hawaii averages 17.9 fouls (265th) and 4.7 blocks (32nd) per game. They also steal 10.3 balls, which places them fourth.

In the opinion of KenPom, Houston is the best city in the United States. According to these statistics, the Cougars finished in 14th place for offensive efficiency, first place for defensive efficiency, and 350th place for pace (after taking into account the schedule).

Texas Tech vs Houston Betting Pick

While Houston was playing their only game of the season, Texas Tech was no match for them. Houston was able to keep the Red Raiders to fewer than 30 points in both half of the game. When compared to UH, TTU only made 36.7% of their shots, lost 38-28 in rebounds, and turned the ball over eight times more frequently than United States. In the paint, Houston defeated Texas Tech by a score of 40–8, revealing that they are the superior team inside.

In spite of everything that happened, the Red Raiders played BYU in a fantastic contest. Despite the fact that they attempt the most three-point shots per game in the country, the Cougars fell short of seven out of thirty-five three-point shots. Following the break, the Cougars made a last-ditch effort to make a comeback, but TTU was able to hold them off and win the first half 42–23. The offense of the Red Raiders performed admirably; they shot 49.1% overall and 9/19 (47.4%) from three-point range throughout the game.

They will take that play over into their game on Friday, which is against the Cougars, who are the top-seeded team. I am confident that Texas Tech will utilize the humiliation they experienced from their prior loss to Houston as motivation. In comparison to how they performed in that road defeat, they have improved their three-point shooting, and they are extremely dangerous when they get to the free throw line frequently (18th in FT%). It is not nearly as difficult to win a straight-up game against Houston as it is to cover the spread. My prediction is that the Red Raiders will play with sufficient intensity to keep the score closer than the majority of people anticipate it will be.
