There is nobody who identified this game as being pivotal to the B12 race before the season began. If West Virginia wins they might run away with this thing.
Texas Tech is checking all the boxes for being a good team but it is still Texas Tech. It’s not like they have a lot of experience with this level of achievement.
West Virginia Mountaineers
The Mountaineers are looking great. Their only loss was in their first game of the season against Texas A&M. This a big game on the road and just before Kansas visits.
Press Virginia can get inside anyone’s head, just look at how they limited Trae Young in their win over Oklahoma. They want to make teams uncomfortable and push the pace.
Jevon Carter is having a really nice senior season. He is probably the best defender at his position in America and he is scoring more than ever.
He and Daxter Miles are the key. Not only are they the leading scorers for the Mountaineers they are the one who set the tempo both offensively and defensively.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
If you can believe College Basketball Reference Texas Tech has not been ranked this season since the demise of the Southwest Conference. A team that featured Jason Sasses that won 30 games.
If they could get to that level this season they might just steal the B12 away from Kansas, who wins it seemingly every season. They are good enough to do that and Chris Beard is a great coach.
Keenan Evans is a player who has gotten better every season. He leads the Red Raiders at 17ppg but this team can score (90ppg) and defend (60ppg allowed – 5th).
They have just enough size to defend against it but their bigs do not provide much production. That is unlikely to hold them back in this matchup.

Free West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders NCAAB Prediction:
This will be an interesting one when the spread is released. Some have WVU as the top team in the country but they are still on the road in conference.
At the same time it is still a little difficult to get used to Texas Tech being a top team. Even is they did win at Kansas already.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: West Virginia +4
It might not be logical but I know WVU is really good. Texas Tech I am still not sold on yet. Go with the name you know.
