Texas Tech Texas Betting – Red-Hot Longhorns Don’t Want To Cool Off Anytime Soon

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 1:16:49 AM

The Texas Longhorns are quickly becoming one of the surprise teams of the 2011 college basketball season. A team that’s playing its way into a high seed faces Texas Tech this Saturday.

Why To Bet On Texas Tech

The sports betting landscape is filled with upsets in college basketball, even in cases in which the road teams rose up and won. This past weekend, over a dozen ranked teams lost in cases when they weren’t expected to tumble. Connecticut fell at home against Louisville and Villanova did the same thing against Georgetown. Duke got pounded by St. John’s. Wisconsin got ambushed by Penn State. Brigham Young stumbled at New Mexico. Washington lost at Washington State. Vanderbilt lost its first home game of the season against a thoroughly mediocre Arkansas team, and that game was decided by a double-digit margin. Online betting students know that even when logic says there’s little to no chance of something happening, college sports – far more than professional sports – can create surprises out of nowhere. Maybe Texas Tech, the winner of three straight games heading into its Tuesday night tilt with Kansas, has the ability to play its best game of the season this weekend at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. Maybe coach Pat Knight, the son of legendary bench boss (and former Texas Tech coach) Bob Knight, will produce the kind of game plan that will rattle Texas. Anything is possible in college sports, especially a backyard rivalry like this Lone Star State showdown between two schools that don’t like each other at all. It might not be football, which Texans truly cherish, but there’s still a lot of hatred to go around, and that can fuel Tech on a day when a full effort might make things more interesting than the experts think.

Why To Bet On Texas

Super Bowl betting analysts know that while Pittsburgh and Green Bay are two very evenly-matched teams, which therefore means that the point spread for Super Bowl XLV shouldn’t be very big in either direction, the calculus is different in college basketball. Texas is surging right now and stands alone atop the Big 12 Conference, ahead of the Kansas team it defeated on the road a few weekends ago. Coach Rick Barnes is squeezing every ounce of ability and potential from his team, which just keeps steamrolling opponents in a display of excellence that few college basketball pundits anticipated. Texas is coming off a 50-hour stretch in which it throttled two of the Big 12’s better teams with stifling defense. On Saturday night, Texas limited a high-octane Missouri team to just 58 points and would have won by a much bigger margin if it had done better than 16-of-34 from the foul line. On Monday night, Texas dismantled Texas A&M, another top-25 team, by a 69-49 count. The Longhorns, who underachieved massively in 2010, are overachieving 12 months later thanks to their suffocating defense. Texas Tech will be hard pressed to find any answers against an opponent that’s flourishing at the moment.

How The Game Will Play Out

Ever since Texas broke Kansas’ 69-game home-court winning streak, the Longhorns have been filled with an uncommon amount of confidence. Texas has made the Final Four only once under Rick Barnes, in 2003. Right now, the Longhorns are playing at a Final Four level, so a Texas Tech team with 11 losses (12 if it loses to Kansas on Tuesday night) does not figure to stop the freight train that’s rolling through Austin. Take Texas in what should be a decisive Longhorn victory.
