Mountaineers Open as Big 9-Point Underdog in Season Finale at Oklahoma State



For the first time all season West Virginia only has pride to play for in their season closing game at Oklahoma State. The struggling 4-7 Mountaineers are unable to reach bowl eligibility even with a win.

Regardless of what’s left to play for and the uncertainty surrounding the future of the program, WVU does have a game to play on Saturday. However, oddsmakers don’t give them much chance of winning it. The Cowboys open up as a big 9-point favorite to beat West Virginia, according to Circa Sports, who has been releasing their odds for the next week’s game earlier than most books this season.

WVU’s disappointing season is a clear reason to make the Mountaineers an underdog, as they have been in most games this year, but Oklahoma State is also in the midst of decline of their own. After a strong 5-0 start to the season and being ranked as high as number 9 in the country at one point, OSU has lost four of their last six games, including getting blown out in “Bedlam” by a down Oklahoma team in their last game.
