What to Know

The #19 Texas Tech Red Raiders are 9-3 against the Kansas State Wildcats since January of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Saturday. Texas Tech and K-State will face off in a Big 12 battle at noon ET at Fred Bramlage Coliseum. The Red Raiders will be strutting in after a win while the Wildcats will be stumbling in from a loss.

Everything went Texas Tech's way against the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Thursday as they made off with a 78-57 victory. Texas Tech got double-digit scores from five players: forward Kevin Obanor (17), guard Adonis Arms (13), guard Davion Warren (12), forward Bryson Williams (11), and forward Marcus Santos-Silva (10).

Meanwhile, K-State was close but no cigar on Wednesday as they fell 60-57 to the TCU Horned Frogs. Guard Nijel Pack had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 38 minutes with 4-for-14 shooting.

The Red Raiders are the favorite in this one, with an expected 5-point margin of victory. They are currently four-for-four against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Texas Tech's victory brought them up to 13-3 while the Wildcats' defeat pulled them down to 8-7. A couple defensive stats to keep an eye on: Texas Tech have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 37.40%, which places them ninth in college basketball. K-State is not quite as good, but they are no chumps, either: they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 39.20%, which places them 28th in college basketball.
