Texas Tech vs Oklahoma State Totals Pick – Stats

When it comes to point production, Texas Tech is averaging 73.6 PPG and the Cowboys are hitting for 75.8 PPG. Those are solid stats for betting the over. On defense, OSU is giving up 70.6 PPG. That’s also trending towards the over. However, the Red Raider defense is allowing opponents just 62.9 PPG. That could indicate a tilt towards the under.

However, with the best over being 138.0 and best under 138.5, when we consider the offensive output of these two teams, we can imagine this contest hitting the over. Even with a strong Texas Tech defense, the over looks quite possible.
