Why Bet On No. 24 West Virginia?
The best (only?) reason to bet on West Virginia in this contest is because the Mountaineers are getting two touchdowns as home underdogs in this Week 12. Unfortunately, West Virginia has lost five straight while getting held to 17 points or less in each of their last three games including their 38-17 smackdown loss against Texas tech last weekend. The Mountaineers are ranked an uninspiring 110th in scoring (21.1 ppg) and an equally discouraging 100th in points allowed (32.1 ppg), not to mention the fact that they’ve dropped three straight at home.

Why Bet On Kansas State?
While K-State comes into this contest off a heart-breaking 27-24 road loss at Texas last weekend to see their national ranking take a tumble that almost landed them outside the Top 25, there are a handful of great reasons to back the Wildcats in this contest. K-State is by far, the better statistical team on both sides of the ball in averaging 32.3 points per game (47th) while limiting the opposition to just 21.1 points per game defensively (32nd). Then, there’s the fact that the Wildcats have gone a near-perfect 4-1 at Bill Snyder Stadium this season. Last but not least, the Wildcats will be highly motivated after their aforementioned loss to Texas this past Saturday.

West Virginia vs Kansas State Expert Analysis and Prediction
While K-State suffered a damaging loss last weekend, I like the way the Wildcats have been playing in winning each of their previous three games. The Wildcats put a whopping 48 points on the board against Oklahoma three weeks ago and followed that up by putting 38 points on the board against Kansas the following week.
With West Virginia giving up a generous 38 points or more in four of their last five games and K-State seriously focused after last week’s loss, I believe the Mountaineers are ripe for another spanking in this Week 12 matchup. West Virginia has gone 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 meetings against K-State. Conversely, the Wildcats have gone a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last 4 conference games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games. I like Kansas State for the big win and ATS cover in this one!
