College Football Betting Trends
The Bears have covered in four of their last five conference games, but just 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games.
The Mountaineers are 1-5-1 against the spread in their last seven road games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six Big 12 games.
WVU has won three straight meetings with Baylor, but the Bears have covered the spread in three of the last four against the Mountaineers. West Virginia looks to be mailing it in now. They have lost three straight by double figures and their last two by at least 24 points. Baylor is at home and not going to put themselves in danger of overlooking WVU, especially with a bye week under their belt. The Bears have the offense and defense to dominate this game and they should on national television.
