Big 12

TCU Opens as Heavy Favorites to Beat West Virginia in Morgantown



To np surprise, odds makers are heavily favoring TCU over West Virginia as the college football lines open for Week 9.

TCU is starting out as a 7-point favorite to beat WVU, according to Circa Sports. The Mountaineers are at home, but have already lost once at Milan Puskar Stadium this season and are reeling following a poor showing in Lubbock, losing to Texas Tech 48-10. On the flip side, TCU is coming into Morgantown as the class of the Big 12 after back-to-back wins against ranked conference opponents.

The loss to the Red Raiders dropped WVU to 3-4 overall and 1-3 in conference play. A win over the 7-0 undefeated Horned Frogs could give Neal Brown and his team the big win they desperately need in an attempt to close this season on a positive note and keep hope of a bowl appearance alive.

This matchup between WVU and TCU will take place at 12 pm EST and be televised nationally on ESPN.
