For Texas Tech vs. Baylor, the model projects that the Red Raiders stay within the spread as 9.5-point road underdogs. Texas Tech has some newfound confidence following a pair of impressive victories. The Red Raiders were able to go on the road and beat LSU during the SEC/Big 12 Challenge last weekend before pulling off the largest comeback in school history in their overtime win against No. 13 Iowa State on Monday.
They overcame a 23-point deficit in the final 12:38 to force overtime, picking up their first conference win of the season. Kevin Obanor scored 24 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in a double-double effort, knocking down a pair of free throws with 19 seconds remaining to secure the win. He joined Rick Bullock as the only Texas Tech players to reach 2,000 career points and 1,000 career rebounds.
Obanor has been Texas Tech's leader this season, averaging 15.7 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. Sophomore guard Jaylon Tyson had a standout performance against Baylor several weeks ago, scoring 19 points and grabbing 12 rebounds. Texas Tech was a 2.5-point favorite in that contest, so SportsLine's model has identified value on the Red Raiders as nearly double-digit underdogs in the rematch, projecting them to cover the spread 60% of the time.
