  • The 11th-ranked Texas Tech Red Raiders (19-6 SU, 17-8 ATS) will go for a regular-season sweep of seventh-ranked Baylor (21-4, 14-10-1) on Wednesday when they host the Bears as small home favorites at sportsbooks monitored by Odds Shark. Baylor failed to cover as an 11.5-point home favorite in the first meeting, a 65-62 upset win for Texas Tech, which could influence Bears vs Red Raiders predictions.

    Bears vs Red Raiders Odds & Analysis

    Sportsbook Odds

    Baylor may be the higher-ranked team, but that does not seem to matter much in this conference rematch. The Red Raiders had their way with the Bears in the second half of their first meeting, and they can pull even with their opponent in the Big 12 standings if they can complete the sweep.

    Texas Tech also has the best home-court advantage in the league, which is probably why bettors have moved the favorite up to -1.5 in early action. The total has dropped slightly too, down to 136, although the second meeting figures to be a higher-scoring affair. The difference could come down to who can control the tempo.

    Baylor Looking To Avenge Two Of Its Four Losses Over The Next Week

    The Bears will have an excellent opportunity to exact revenge on two of the four opponents that have beaten them so far this season, starting with this game. Baylor surprisingly lost back-to-back home games on January 11 and 15 for its first two losses of the year, blowing a 31-26 halftime lead against Texas Tech in the first of those.

    The Bears shot just 23-for-56 from the field (41.1 percent) and allowed the Red Raiders to make more than half of their attempts (28-for-55, 50.9 percent). In order to come through as underdogs in this Bears vs Red Raiders prediction, the visitors must shoot better here.

    Texas Tech’s Balanced Scoring Makes Life Difficult For The Opposition

    The Red Raiders saw five players score in double figures in the first meeting with the Bears, including Kevin McCullar off the bench with 12 points, six rebounds and five assists in 31 minutes. Four starters also scored in double figures, and Texas Tech has five players overall who are averaging between 13.4 and 9.8 points per game on the season.

    Meanwhile, Baylor got only 14 points from its reserves in that first meeting, and those three players were on the court for a combined 66 minutes. The Bears vs Red Raiders prediction rightfully favors the hosts, assuming they will get similar production in this spot.

    Bears vs Red Raiders Pick & Insights

    Bears: Keys To Cover

    If you are taking the road team with your Bears vs Red Raiders pick, then you must be confident they will bounce back and shoot the ball much better in the second meeting. It is worth noting that Baylor will be without forward Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua following knee surgery, and he was the team’s leading rebounder. Without him, look for somebody else to rise to the occasion and provide a spark with some extra motivation.

    Red Raiders: Keys To Cover

    Texas Tech has a chance to get inside its opponent’s head with a sweep, and the team is the lone unbeaten squad at home in the Big 12 this season as well at 15-0. The Red Raiders have fed off their home crowd throughout the year and already own big wins over the Kansas Jayhawks, Iowa State Cyclones and Texas Longhorns there. With such a small number to cover, all they will likely need to do is remain undefeated at home.
