Three points is added due to home field advantage, meaning oddsmakers would still have it a two touchdown spread (-13.5) if the game was to be played on a neutral field. While West Virginia is coming off a close loss to Pitt, Kansas is coming off a blowout 56-10 win over FCS opponent Tennessee Tech.
If betting the spread isn’t your thing, West Virginia is being given -850 odds to win outright while Kansas is being given +570 odds to win outright. The over/under for the game is currently set at 57.5 points.
West Virginia and Kansas will play this week at Milan Puskar Stadium in Morgantown at 6:00 p.m. It’ll be both West Virginia’s home and Big 12 conference opener for the 2022 season.
