The Iowa State Cyclones will be on the road to take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Tuesday, January 18th.
The tip-off is set for 9:00 ET from United Supermarkets Arena.
The Red Raiders started off as a 6 point favorite and that number is now up to 7.5. The total has gone from 122.5 to 124.
Iowa State Cyclones
Iowa State has had quite the season so far. As the year goes on, I really want to see if they can keep up their strong play.
The Cyclones beat the Texas Longhorns on Saturday by a score of 79-70. That was a nice win for them over one of the better teams in the Big 12.
This is a team that has already taken on some solid competition. I would say the best teams they have faced have been Kansas and Baylor, but their work will not be easy on Tuesday when they face this Red Raiders team on the road.
Gabe Kalscheur led his team in scoring over Texas with 22 points in the game. Also, Tyrese Hunter had 13 points and 8 assists.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
Just like their opponent, Texas Tech has had a very good season so far. It is going to be fun watching them compete with other good schools in the Big 12 for the rest of this season.
At the moment, the Red Raiders have an impressive record of 13-4. Of those wins, two that really stand out are the ones over Baylor and Kansas. If these guys are on their game, they can compete and beat the best of the best.
In the previous sentence, I was praising them, but now I have to be critical, as they are coming off a game in which they lost to the Kansas State Wildcats by a score of 62-51. Listen, K-State is a fine team, but you cannot lose the types of games if you want to be put in the same breath as the best teams in the sport.
In their last loss, the defense played pretty good, but the offense did not come near playing well enough to win. I would expect them to be much better on that side of the ball when they take the court again on Tuesday.

Free Iowa State Cyclones vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders NCAAB Summary:
This game may not feature the two very best teams in the Big 12, but that is no knock on the Cyclones and Red Raiders. I think them playing each other can make for a very entertaining ball game.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Iowa State ATS
After Texas Tech laid a total egg in their last game, they will look to get back on track here when they host Iowa State. Needless to say, they are going to have to play much better or the result could be much worse than it was on Saturday.
I really like the way the Cyclones have been playing and I feel they can keep that up on Tuesday, even if they do not win the ball game.
To me, this is the type of game that is going to be close throughout. The Red Raiders may win the game, but I think the 7.5 points are too high to lay with them here against a very good team in Iowa State.
I like Iowa State getting the points here.
