With the bye over and the attention shifting back to the WVU football team getting on the field again, oddsmakers are starting to release their opening lines for West Virginia’s next game.
According to major sportsbooks like DraftKings, the Mountaineers are a road favorite, granted just by a four-point margin, in their upcoming matchup with the Cougars. It’s possible oddsmakers are viewing this game as one WVU could be trapped by the hype of facing off against former West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen.
WVU enters the contest riding a four-game win streak. Houston has struggled so far this season. West Virginia sits at 4-1 (2-0). Houston is 2-3 (0-2) with their wins coming over UTSA and Sam Houston State. Conventional wisdom may suggest a win for the Mountaineers, but as we have seen from results all across the country, conventional wisdom doesn’t always lead to outcomes people expect.
But if WVU wants to keep their hopes alive of getting ranked and continuing to prove doubters wrong, they will have to take care of business on Thursday night. Kickoff is set for 7 pm ET and the game will be televised nationally on FS1.
