West Virginia Mountaineers

The Mountaineers are 3-0 overall and 3-0 ATS.  The West Virginia Mountaineers look like they will be Oklahoma’s biggest challenge for the Big 12 championship as they have a high powered offense as well as one of the better defenses in college football. West Virginia is 3-0 ATS overall, 2-0 ATS after a win and 3-0 ATS as a favorite.

Will Grier leads the team in passing with 1,117 yards for 14 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Leddie Brown leads the team in rushing with 171 yards and a touchdown. Marcus Simms leads the team in receiving with 15 receptions for 295 yards and a touchdown.

They are allowing 185.33 passing yards per game which is below the 228.54 average for the rest of college football.

West Virginian remains undefeated overall and ATS

Both of these teams feature high powered offenses, but West Virginia has the better defense of the two as they are tied for best in college football in scoring defense. The Mountaineers are arguably the most complete team in the Big 12 and feature a Heisman candidate in quarterback Will Grier. I look for the defense to slow down the Red Raiders passing attack and pick up the win and cover. Make sure to bet this match-up on BetDSI.
