Updated predictions and odds between Texas Tech vs. Duke for the NCAA Sweet Sixteen Tournament

Sweet 16 kicks off on Thursday, March 24, and we’ve got a great match between #3 Texas Tech and #2 Duke at 9:39 p.m. EST.

Texas Tech destroyed Montana State before holding Notre Dame out in the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament while Duke got a double-digit win over Cal State-Fullerton and a nine-point victory over Michigan State.

Both teams have been on poor odds lately, with the Red Raiders winning 2-6 over the odds (ATS) in the last 8 and the Blues winning 1-5 ATS in the last 6.

With Coach K nearing retirement, every game Duke plays could be the last of his legendary career – the Blues will ease the pressure and move towards the Elite Eight or the stingy Texas defence. Will Tech end Coach K’s career?

Texas Tech Red Raiders

Duke Blue Devil

BetSided’s Ben Heisler Picks Red Raiders for promotion and I totally agree with him. The Blue Devil seems to be ripe for sadness for a while and hasn’t played defensively anywhere close to Texas Tech’s level since November.

Texas Tech has the best defense in the country while Duke ranks in the 1st percentile in defensive ratings in their last 5 games. The Red Raiders aren’t a great offensive team, but they’re getting hot from the deep at the right time. With a 94-percent rating in a three-point tie in their last five games, Texas Tech can take advantage of this leaky Blue Devils defense.

The concern for me going into the tournament for Texas Tech is that they will play brilliantly defensively and their attack will falter. But Duke has one of the worst defenses in the field and was the worst in March, so I’m not worried and think the Red Raiders were dominant from start to finish.

We’ve seen some bad habits emerge from Duke’s stars as they try to force a breach issue to make up for their defensive struggles, but Texas Tech’s disciplined defense will make the most of it. use those bad decisions.

Duke has been in unfamiliar territory as an underdog team and between the pressure off the field from the retirement of Coach K and the pressure on the field from the Red Raiders defence, I think they will be stunned. overwhelmed. Coach K’s career ends tomorrow night.

Pick: Texas Tech -1 (-110)
