Key Betting Trends

The Mountaineers are 1-4 against the spread in their last five meetings with the Bears. That said, West Virginia is 4-1 against the number in its last five games overall, is 14-2 at the betting window in its last 16 road games versus an opponent that has a losing home record, and is 4-1 ATS in its last five games played in October. The Bears, meanwhile, are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games played in October but are 31-15 against the spread in their last 46 home games.

OUR PREDICTION: The over is 6-1 in the Mountaineers' last seven games played in October, is 4-1-1 in their last six games overall, and is 6-0 in their last six games when facing a team with a losing record. On the other side, the over is 35-15-1 in the Bears' last 51 home games and is 19-7 in their last 26 home games versus an opponent that owns a winning road record. Baylor is atrocious defensively, allowing 40.0 points per game and surrendering 518.3 total yards per contest. Will Grier and this West Virginia offense will light up the scoreboard all night and Baylor should contribute plenty as well.
