Texas Tech Red Raiders 2021-22 Season
Texas Tech is just a couple years removed from making their first appearance in the National Championship game in program history. But this 2021-22 club is a different group this time around. Former head coach Chris Beard is now Mark Adams. Jarrett Culver is in the NBA and now senior forward Bryson Williams is the team’s leading scorer.
As of Feb. 17, the Red Raiders are the No. 11 team in the country and are on their way to the Top 10 after taking down No. 7 Baylor. Their performance in the Big 12 Tournament should cement their seeding status for the NCAA Tournament.

Betting on the Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Texas Tech Red Raiders have some tough matchups remaining in the season, so be sure to pay close attention to the odds. Here are some of the popular bet types that you can make on the Wildcats if you live in a legal sports betting state.
- Point Spread
- Futures Odds
Texas Tech Moneyline
A moneyline bet requires a bettor to correctly pick the winner of the game. If you pick the winner of the game correctly, you will win the bet. How much you win will be determined by your wager amount and the associated moneyline for the team you bet on. Here's an example using a recent Texas Tech game against TCU.
- Texas Tech -690 moneyline
- TCU +480 moneyline
Texas Tech is the heavily favored team to win this game, which is indicated by the minus sign (-) next to their moneyline. TCU is the underdog denoted by the plus sign (+) next to their moneyline. The moneyline number signifies the potential payout for each team. Someone betting on Texas Tech would have to bet $690 to win $100 whereas a bettor would win $480 with a wager of $100 on TCU.
Texas Tech Point Spread
Users can also place a point spread wager on the Texas Tech Red Raiders. This requires a bettor to correctly select the margin of victory by a particular team, rather than simply who wins. Here's the same Texas Tech vs. TCU matchup as an example.
- Texas Tech -10.5 (-110)
- TCU +10.5 (-110)
Oddsmakers set a margin of victory total known as the spread. In this game, Texas Tech has to win by 11 or more points to beat this spread and TCU either has to win the game outright or lose by 10 points or less to beat the spread. Point spreads also have an additional element known as juice, or the vig, which is the tax paid to the sportsbook for each bet. The juice is indicated next to the point spread. This number is used to determine a wager payout. For a bet on Texas Tech, a bettor would earn a profit of $100 for every $110 risked. Someone betting on TCU would earn a profit of $100 for every $110 risked.
Texas Tech Over/Unders
Betting on over/under totals looks at the cumulative final score between two teams, not the winner or loser of the game. Bettors are required to accurately predict if the teams combine higher or lower than a number set by oddsmakers. Oddsmakers set the over/under total for Texas Tech vs. TCU at 128.5 points.
- Over 128.5 points (-110)
- Under 128.5 points (-110)
Again, juice or vig comes into play with over/unders. Betting over 128.5 points means in this case that a bettor would have to wager $110 to earn $100. Betting under 128.5 points would mean a bettor would earn $100 for every $110 risked.
Texas Tech Prop Bets
For those Texas Tech fans that have a particular favorite player, prop bets are a great way to show your support. Oddsmakers will also set lines on player statistics. Bettors then have the opportunity to guess whether those players will go over or under the set line to win money. Some popular prop bets include how many points a player will score, who will score first, how many rebounds a player gets, and many more.
Texas Tech Future Odds
If you like Texas Tech’s odds to make the Final Four or win the NCAA Tournament, take a look at futures odds . A futures bet is wager for an event happening in the later in the season. Because a futures bet can be really hard to predict, the payouts are much higher than a typical wager. The Red Raiders are currently +700 to make the Final Four and +3000 to win the NCAA Tournament (odds via PointsBet Sportsbook) – check out our PointsBet Promo Code page and sign up with ACTION2K1 to claim $2,200 in risk-free bets.
How to Bet on Texas Tech
Sports betting is not currently legal in Texas, and there does not seem to be much in the way of progress for it to be legalized in 2022. Texas politicians have been largely opposed to sports betting in recent years, but sentiment within the state could be shifting. Most expect that any potential legislation could be voted on in the 2023 state general election at the earliest. Stay tuned for updates on The Action Network's Texas betting page regarding sports betting legislation in the state.
