According to oddsmakers at RealBets, West Virginia is favored in today’s bowl game, as the Mountaineers are getting odds of -2 points against Arizona State. The over/under total for the game has been set at 63 points. These two meet tonight at 10:15PM ET on ESPN. The game will be held from Chase Field in Phoenix, AZ.

Bercovici entered the 2015 season as a Heisman darkhorse. While that didn’t work out, he still had a strong year for Arizona State (6-6, 5-7 ATS). The 6-2 senior threw for 3,442 yards and 26 touchdowns with just nine interceptions, completing 60.4 percent of his passes. Tonight, he leads ASU against West Virginia (7-5, 5-7 ATS) and the Mountaineers’ pass defense that ranks 65th nationally, allowing 222.7 yards per game.

Oddsmakers think Bercovici is in for a big game tonight, as they have set his over/under for passing yards at 284.5 vs. WVU. The senior has thrown for at least 285 yards in four games this season, including his last two. When WVU has suffered losses, it has largely been because of the pass. Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma threw for 320 yards in a 44-24 win over WVU while Baylor’s Seth Russell had 380 yards in a 62-38 win over the Mountaineers. Trevone Boykin also threw for 389 yards on WVU in a 40-10 victory.
