College Football Betting Odds:
West Virginia Mountaineers
The Mountaineers charge into this Big 12 matchup sporting a 3-0 record. On top of that, West Virginia is undefeated thus far in conference play this season with a flawless 1-0 record. In fact, the Mountaineers picked up their first Big 12 win of the season this past weekend when they hosted Kansas State. Ultimately West Virginia blew out the competition since the final score read 35-6. Now Will Grier & Co. look to go 2-for-2 in Big 12 play against a formidable opponent. Looking at each teams’ numbers, it’s pretty clear this game will be coming down to the wire – just like the college football betting spread line predicts. WVU is putting up 43.3 per game while allotting 12.3 points to their opponent. On the other hand, Texas Tech is garnering 53.0 points per outing while giving up a total of 28.3 to their opponents.
Players to Watch: Will Grier (1,117 passing yards, 14 TD, 3 INT), Leddie Brown (171 rushing yards, 1 TD, 5.5 AVG), and Marcus Simms (295 receiving yards, 1 TD, 15 REC).
Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Red Raiders tumble into this weekend’s matchup flashing a 3-1 record. Opening up the season with a 47-27 home loss to Ole Miss, Texas Tech has done all they can to bounce back. Considering they enter this weekend’s action riding a 3-game winning streak, it’s safe to say that they have done so. Furthermore, this past weekend’s 41-17 routing of No. 15 Oklahoma State shows Texas Tech is ready for bigger challenges. That bigger challenge just happens to be the nation’s 12th program but at the very least Texas Tech will have the leisure of playing at home. They’ll need that home field advantage too since they are 2-4 in their last 6 matchups against WVU.
Players to Watch: Alan Bowman (1,557 passing yards, 10 TD, 2 INT), Ta’Zhawn Henry (231 rushing yards, 6 TD, 5.0 AVG), Antoine Wesley (511 receiving yards, 4 TD, 30 REC).
