Pick Against The Spread
The Red Raiders lost four straight conference games at home before two nice wins over Iowa State and Kansas State. They played the Longhorns tough in the earlier meeting, racing out to a 34-25 halftime lead but came up short, losing 72-70. TTU is likely to be without G Pop Isaacs, who was the team’s leading scorer (23 points) in the earlier match-up, but their improved play by the defense and G De’Vion Harmon stepping it up in the scoring has me on the home side. Take TTU +4.
