Texas Tech Red Raiders          

The Red Raiders are making their first ever Final Four appearance and will have to battle a perennial title challenger in Michigan State. All in all Texas Tech’s run has been extremely impressive seeing as how they put an end to No. 2 Michigan and No. 1 Gonzaga in the lead up. Nevertheless, it is still not a shock to see the college basketball betting odds peg Texas Tech as the underdog here. After all, they’re at an offensive disadvantage since they’re scoring 73.0 per game while the Spartans deliver 78.6. However, Texas Tech gets the edge on defense. This is because they’re only giving up 59.0 points per game while Michigan State is allotting 65.2.

Players to Watch: Jarrett Culver (18.9 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 3.8 apg), Davide Moretti (11.6 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 2.5 apg), and Matt Mooney (11.0 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 3.4 apg).

Michigan State Spartans    

The Spartans narrowly avoided defeat at the hands of Duke. However, before that Elite Eight contest, Michigan State managed to rout No. 3 LSU 80-63. Nevertheless, the fact that they upset Duke is plenty good for the program. As for this matchup, it should come down to who is more efficient on offense. Both sides are quite versatile in their points but the Spartans elect to shoot from downtown much more than Texas Tech. Shooting wise however, things are pretty even. This is because Michigan State shoots 48.4 percent from the field while the Red Raiders shoot 48.4.

Players to Watch: Cassius Winston (18.9 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 7.6 apg), Joshua Langford (15.0 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 2.3 apg), and Nick Ward (13.2 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 0.7 apg).
