Who We Like: The under. Even though starters Andrew Jones (illness/out for the year) and Kerwin Roach II (hand, out) are both out for Texas this still feels like too many points to lay in what should be a relatively close game. There's more value in the total.

The under is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams in Morgantown and has cashed in six of the last eight meetings between these two teams overall. The under is also 13-5 in the Longhorns' last 18 conference games, is 38-17 in their last 55 road games, and is 33-16-2 in their last 51 contests overall.

On the other side, the under has cashed in five straight West Virginia games. It is also 4-1 in the Mountaineers' last five home games and is 5-0 in their last five conference tilts.
