Long Beach State vs. West Virginia Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Long Beach State vs. West Virginia 11/20/17

Is No. 24 West Virginia set to have a lopsided win when the Mountaineers take on Long Beach State at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, West Virginia is the clear favorite at home, as the Mountaineers are getting odds of -23.5 points against Long Beach State. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 158.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from the WVU Coliseum in Morgantown, West Virginia as part of the Advocare Invitational.

Long Beach State is off to a 2-1 start to the season, but coming off an 89-81 loss at Oregon State this past weekend. The 49ers are 2-0 against the spread in their pair of lined games. They have been a double-digit underdog in these games. Long Beach State is putting up 82 points per game while allowing 80 per contest. Barry Ogalue is leading the 49ers with 17.3 points and 5.7 rebounds per game while Gabe Levin is adding 11.7 points and 9 rebounds per contest.

West Virginia is coming off a 111-48 win over Morgan State this weekend to improve to 2-1 on the season. However, the Mountaineers failed to cover in their lone lined game, falling to Texas A&M 88-65 to open the season. WVU is averaging 91.3 points per game thus far while allowing 66.7 points per contest. Daxter Miles Jr. is leading West Virginia with 18.3 points per game while Jevon Carter is adding 16.3 points, 6.3 assists and 5 steals per game.

Bet on Long Beach State vs. West Virginia

These two last met in 2009 and West Virginia picked up an 85-62 win as a 15-point favorite. West Virginia hasn’t been great at home, covering in just one of their last six games. The Mountaineers are also 1-5-2 ATS in their last 8 after a straight up win. The 49ers are 5-0 ATS in their last five games and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games. The public betting is strongly with West Virginia, but I don’t like what I have seen from the Mountaineers thus far.
