Texas Tech has been awesome this season. So good they might break the stranglehold that Kansas has has on the B12 for more than a decade.
Baylor is going to be an interesting case for the Selection Committee. They have some really good wins but 10 losses, is 10 losses.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Red Raiders look great but this could be a tricky spot. They are not nearly as sharp on the road and Baylor is desperate.
Texas Tech is one of the best defensive teams in the country and they make it tough on guards especially but they will have to guard a big man in this one too.
Keenan Evans is having a brilliant senior season and the team is winning. 18ppg is a career high and a great way to cap a career that has seen progressive improvement.
Only two other players score more than 7 ppg so there is going to be some pressure to make shots against a zone defense Baylor is good at playing.
Baylor has won four in a row including at Texas in overtime earlier in the week. Their backs are against it and they can’t afford another home loss even though Texas Tech is really good.
Manu Lecomte is scoring more but his shooting is down this season. That could be a big reason why the Bears have been so inconsistent. He will have to be very good here.
The Bears have an advantage inside with Jo Lual-Acuil. He is a 7 footer who scores and rebounds and an good option against strong defenses like Texas Tech
Baylor was dominated by Tech when they first met this season. They did not even score 60 points and lost by more than 20.

Free Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. Baylor Bears NCAAB Prediction:
There is a lot to like about Texas Tech on paper but I haven’t seen much of them so I am still a little skeptical.
That probably isn’t fair but at the same time it is OK to take a pass where as normally I would be all over a top team as a small road favourite.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Baylor +2
I think at home they can get a desperation win against a superior team, just like when they beat Kansas last week.
