Line Opens with West Virginia as 3-Point Home Underdogs to Baylor



At one time, a night game in Morgantown almost guaranteed a victory for the Mountaineers, but that’s not the case according to odds makers anymore.

West Virginia opens as 3 point underdogs to Baylor for their matchup this Thursday night despite it being at home, per Circa Sports.

This line doesn’t really come as any surprise though since WVU is entering the game with a 2-3 record and winless at 0-2 in conference play. Even though the Bears are also coming off a loss, just like WVU, theirs was to Oklahoma State, a team ranked inside the AP top 10.

No matter the spread, a win for WVU could shake thing up in the Big 12 with sitting at 1-1 in conference play. Baylor is 3-2 overall so far on the season.

A win for WVU would also improve on their 1-3 record in night games this year.
