Why Bet On No. 12 West Virginia?

Why should you bet on West Virginia? Hell, there are a bunch of great reasons. The 12th ranked Mountaineers have the more explosive offense by 8.6 points per game (39.9 ppg-31.3 ppg). Oh, there’s also the fact that West Virginia is also statistically better defensively as well (19.6 ppg-24.9 ppg). The Mountaineers have the better quarterback in this contest and a lot to play for as they look to give their conference and ‘longshot’ national championship hopes a boost.

 

West Virginia comes into this contest off a commanding 58-14 blowout win over Baylor this past Thursday as quarterback Will Grier completed 17 of 27 passes for 353 yards and three touchdowns. For the season, Grier who has completed an incendiary 70.3 percent of his passes while tossing 25 TD passes and seven interceptions.

Why Bet On No. 15 Texas?

Why should you bet on the Longhorns to hold It down as a field goal home favorite? First, Texas is completely desperate after suffering their second loss of the season last week. Then, there’s the fact that the Longhorns upset the Mountaineers 28-14 last season as a 3-point road dog. Finally, the Horns are playing at home.

 

Texas was on the wrong end of a heartbreaking 38-35 road loss against Oklahoma State last weekend as Sam Ehlinger completed 22 of 42 passes for 283 yards and a pair of touchdowns but the Longhorns defense allowed Cowboys quarterback Taylor Cornelius to toss three TD passes and run for two more in the loss.

Expert Analysis and Prediction for West Virginia at Texas

I don’t care that Texas is playing at home in this contest, nor does it matter to me that they are favored. I genuinely believe that West Virginia is the far better team and that the Mountaineers are going to get the outright win because of it. Will Grier looks like a sure-fire NFL performer and the Mountaineers can score from virtually anywhere on the field.

 

Texas has holes on both sides of the ball and a defense that gave up at least 34 points in both of their losses this season. The Mountaineers are 4-1-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Longhorns are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games in the month of November. West Virginia will get it done, largely on the strength of Will Grier’s right arm and their potent, ninth-ranked passing attack.
