Public Betting: Which side are public bettors on for this Matchup?
Bettors are hammering the Mountaineers in this matchup. As of this writing, 84% of tickets are on West Virginia minus the 24.5 points.
OUR PREDICTION: West Virginia will score plenty in this matchup and I'm well aware of the big movement on the total. That said, East Carolina is coming off a loss to James Madison and coach Scottie Montgomery is already making a switch at quarterback from Gardner Minshew to Thomas Sirk. The Mountaineers will score, but will the Pirates? I don't think East Carolina has enough juice to help push the score over.
