Betting on the West Virginia Mountaineers (3-1)

West Virgina has won three straight games before their bye week last week, leaving the opening season loss to Virginia Tech as a distant memory. Their more recent 56-34 win over Kansas two weeks ago is an especially nice confidence booster. While they were well on their way to covering a 24-point spread against the Jayhawks, the squad eased up and allowed Kansas to get within one score at the midpoint of the fourth quarter. Regardless, it was an impressive performance, with the Mountaineers racking up 635 yards, which included 288 on the ground and 347 in the air. QB Will Grier threw 347 of them, making that his fourth straight 300-yard+ effort of the season – not a bad start! Running backs Crawford and McKoy both hit the 100+ rushing mark while wide receiver David Sills pulled in eight catches for 130 yards and two TDs.

West Virginia has outgained each of their four opponents this season, boasting an average of 145 yards to date.

Betting on the TCU Horned Frogs (4-0)

Also coming off of a bye week, TCU is feeling pretty good about themselves with an undefeated (4-0) season start that includes a 44-31 upset at Oklahoma State University two weeks ago. While they trailed 7-6 through the first quarter they scored two straight TDs soon after and refused to give up the lead from there on in, notching a total of 466 yards of offense and holding a 39/21 time of possession advantage. They even won the turnover battle by a total of 4-1. TCU has outgained all four of their opponents this season by a per-game average of 232-95.

Writer’s Prediction

TCU has a clear defensive advantage and will likely claim victory of West Virginia, however this spread looks pretty inflated because of TCU’s victory over OSU. Smart money here takes the points on the NCAAF point spread.
