Texas Tech has a 25-9 record and is returning from a weekend setback to Kansas. Texas Tech lost a few games so far this season, but they did not lose straight matches. In their first two tournament games, the Red Raiders defeated Iowa State and Oklahoma, before falling to Kansas on Saturday.

#14 Montana State Bobcats vs #3 Texas Tech Red Raiders. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Montana State Bobcats. Here’s where I’m going to take a shot at Montana State. Granted, the Bobcats did not play nationally strong competition in recent weeks, but they’ve performed admirably in league games.

 

Montana State scored 69 points or more in each of their last 17 games, and the Bobcats should be fine if they can put up a decent total in the first half. During these challenging Big 12 games, Texas Tech had its ups and downs.

 

However, the team performed admirably overall. The Raiders should be able to match up well here as well, but I believe Montana State will be able to stay in the game. The Montana State Bobcats will win to a predicted score of 71-62.
