West Virginia Betting Trends
The Mountaineers are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven conference games, are 4-10 against the number in their last 14 road games, and are 4-13 at the betting window in their last 17 games played in October. They're also 1-4 against the spread in their last five games versus an opponent with a winning record and are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games on grass.
TCU Betting Trends
The Horned Frogs have dropped 10 of their last 11 games against the spread at home, are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games in October, and are winless at the betting window in their last four games played on grass. They're also 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 conference games.
OUR PREDICTION: This won't be a walk in the park for TCU. The Mountaineers, like the Horned Frogs, have a prolific offense led by former Florida quarterback Will Grier. The Mountaineers are second in the nation in total yards a game (594.8) and have two solid backs in Justin Crawford and Kennedy McKoy. TCU's defense has been outstanding and Kenny Hill leads an offense that leads the country in third-down conversion percentage (63.2%). Still, I think this will be a fantastic game throughout and I like the dog here.
