NCAA Basketball Betting: Kansas State at Texas Tech

December 1, 2010 NCAA Basketball

NCAA basketball betting should be entertaining on Tuesday as Texas Tech hosts 6th-ranked Kansas State.

The Red Raiders will be playing their third straight Top 25 teams and so far they have not done very well in marquee matchups.  They were blown out at Baylor and they also lost in college basketball betting at home against Texas.

NCAA basketball betting has this as the 25th all-time meeting between Kansas State and Texas Tech.  Each team has won twelve games in the series. Texas Tech has a 7-4 margin in Lubbock and a 2-1 edge on neutral courts. Kansas State holds a 7-3 advantage in Manhattan. The Wildcats won in Manhattan last season, 85-73, while the Red Raiders won the last meeting played in Lubbock, 84-75.

Kansas State continues to impress this season in college basketball betting. They are now 22-4 for the season and 9-3 in conference play. For the season, they are averaging 80.9 points per game and allowing their opponents 69.1 points each game. Jacob Pullen leads the Kansas State team with 18.5 points per game while Denis Clemente has averaged 16.1 points per game.

Texas Tech has averaged 76.5 points per game for the season and has allowed their opponents 74.6 points per game. The Red Raiders have three players in double figures for the season. Mike Singletary leads the team with 15.2 points each game while John Roberson has put in 14.7 points per game while David Tairu adds 10.4 points per game.

Kansas State has been one of the better teams in NCAA basketball betting this season. The Wildcats are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Wildcats are 13-4-1 ATS in their last 18 games overall. The Wildcats are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 road games.  A note of caution though for bettors considering the Wildcats in this game as Kansas State is 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings at Texas Tech

Texas Tech has at least been solid at home in NCAA basketball betting.  The Red Raiders are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games. Seven of the last ten Kansas State road games have gone over the total. Four of the last five Texas Tech games have gone under.  Normally the Red Raiders go over though as 37 of their last 56 games have gone over in NCAA basketball betting.
