Big 12

Line Moves, Still Favoring Texas Tech Over West Virginia



The line for West Virginia’s upcoming game with Texas Tech has moved significantly since it opened up with the Mountaineers as 4-point underdogs on the road.

Despite WVU coming off a victory against a similar conference foe in Baylor, odds makers are favoring the Red Raiders more and more with each passing day. After Circa Sports initially released the 4-point spread on Monday, the line now stands at 5.5, according to BetMGM.

Both the Mountaineers and the Red Raiders are 3-3 overall and have just one conference win. Even though WVU and Texas Tech have experienced similar seasons, the Big 12 teams have only one common opponent to this point in the season. Texas dominated WVU, but suffered an upset loss to Texas Tech that is currently single handily keeping the Longhorns out of the college football playoff picture.

WVU and Texas Tech are scheduled to square off at 3 pm EST today. The game will be televised on FS1.
