Texas Tech Red Raiders vs Iowa State Cyclones 1/10/2023 Free Picks, Odds and Betting Tips

The Texas Tech Red Raiders have been feeling the weight of their rough start to the conference season, with a record of 0-3 in the conference and 10-5 overall. They were crushed by several close losses in the past week, including a heart-wrenching six-point loss to TCU, a devastating three-point defeat to No. 3 Kansas, and a painful five-point overtime demise to Oklahoma. This marks the first time since 2014-15 that the Red Raiders started 0-3 in league play; the team is not at full strength due to injuries to starters Daniel Batcho and Pop Isaacs. Despite these setbacks, the Red Raiders remain intent and resolute in their quest to earn their first conference victory of the season.

The Red Raiders demonstrated true grit and determination in their latest match with Oklahoma. Despite trailing by 13 points in the second half, they scored eight of the final 10 points of regulation to force overtime. Coach Mark Adams was proud of his wards’ efforts, despite being undermanned and some players were tired. He is confident that the team will continue to improve in the coming months. In their recent game, De’Vion Harmon tied a career-high with 23 points, including 21 in the second half, while Kevin Obanor had 15 points and seven rebounds. The all-time series between these two squads are tied at 20 wins each, with Texas Tech entering on a two-game winning run and having won eight of the past 10 matchups.

  • The Red Raiders have a strong record over the Cyclones at 8-0 ATS in their last eight. 
  • The Texas Tech Red Raiders are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games against Iowa State.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 5 of Texas Tech’s last 6 games on the road.

The Iowa State Cyclones are 8-2 in their last 10 matches of the season. Iowa State soared beyond expectations this year with an impressive 12-2 overall record and a triumphant 3-0 start in the Big 12 Conference. Many underestimated the team because of key player losses from last season’s Sweet 16 team, the Cyclones fiercely proved doubters wrong with their unwavering intent to win. The team battled through close-quarter games against strong rivals and is determined to keep their winning streak alive as they face the struggling Red Raiders.

The Cyclones staged a breathtaking victory on Saturday over the TCU Horned Frogs. Gabe Kalscheur’s 3-pointer with just 1.5 seconds left on the clock lifted the team to a 69-67 victory. Jaren Holmes scored 10 points in the game. The Cyclones embraced a competitive mindset, which propelled them to a 3-0 start in the Big 12 conference for the first time since 1999-2000. Coach T.J. Otzelberger emphasized the difficulty and thrill of winning in the league and on the road; he stressed the need to improve one day at a time.

  • The Under connected in three of their past four games.
  • They have a 3-1 record against the spread in their past four home games.
