No. 24 Oklahoma is piping hot and has beaten three ranked teams during its five-game winning streak. It is set to take on a fourth straight ranked team in No. 10 Texas Tech on Sunday in a Big 12 men’s basketball matchup.

The Sooners (11-4, 6-3) have typically won with team ball but their guard duo of Austin Reaves and De’Vion Harmon. They rank first and second in scoring and minutes for Oklahoma but will have to beat out Texas Tech’s dynamic lead guard. The Sooners’ winning streak could be in serious jeopardy.

The Red Raiders are led by former Georgetown guard Mac McClung. While he isn’t a bonafide playmaker, he’s scored at least 20 points eight times this season and leads Texas Tech in scoring with 17.6 points per game. His season-high 30 points nearly helped the Red Raiders top No. 11 West Virginia two games ago, and his high-volume shooting always makes him a threat to put up big numbers.

The Best Bet

Texas Tech edged out Oklahoma by two points on the road in December on a poor shooting night for McClung, but he’s scored 20 or more points in four straight games and has begun to hit his stride. The Red Raiders have won by double-digits in seven of their 10 home games this year.

Pick: Texas Tech -6.5
