Against the Spread (ATS)

WEST VIRGINIA (-9, -110) opened as a double-digit favorite, but it has been bet down to single digits. Perhaps it is a little nervousness on the side of the public after the Mountaineers were just hammered by K-State. Still, they’re 5-1 ATS in the past six games overall and 4-0 ATS in the past four at home.

Texas (+9, -110) is a dismal 4-11 ATS in the past 15 games overall, and 1-5 ATS in the past six games against teams with a winning mark.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 127.5 (-106) is worth a small-unit play. The Under is 8-2 in West Virginia’s past 10 games overall, while going 4-1 in the past five for Texas.
