CBS Sports Release Big 12 Predictions, West Virginia at 5-7

Published

CBS Sports released their Big 12 predictions and, just like many other national outlets, want people to bet the under of 5.5 total wins for West Virginia.

Writer Shehan Jeyarajah highlighted the team’s difficult schedule during a year in which head coach Neal Brown is on the hot seat, as reasoning for the 5-7 prediction.

”The Mountaineers put together a masterclass on how to create the worst possible schedule imaginable for a coach on the hot seat,” wrote Jeyarajah. “West Virginia plays hated rivals Pitt and Virginia Tech in the nonconference. After the Hokies, the Mountaineers play Texas and Baylor in back-to-back weeks.

”In November, WVU plays Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas State and Iowa State. Maybe transfer QB JT Daniels ends up truly being the savior, but my goodness, any ounce of weakness will doom Neal Brown. Pick: Under 5.5 (-125).”

For the conference standings, West Virginia is being projected by CBS Sports to only finish above TCU and Kansas. Texas Tech was also predicted to finished with a 5-7 record, but was given the win over West Virginia which also gives them the tie-breaker.

For the five wins, CBS Sports gives wins over Kansas, Towson, at Virginia Tech, Baylor and TCU with the seven losses being at Pitt, at Texas, at Texas Tech, at Iowa State, Oklahoma, Kansas State and at Oklahoma State.
