West Virginia Opens as 17-Point Favorite over Kansas



Needing to win two games to secure a bowl berth this season, West Virginia handled the first half of the equation. Only Kansas stands in the way now.

With a road game at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium at 7 p.m. Saturday in Lawrence, Kansas, WVU opens as a 17-point favorite. A 55.5-point over/under has been set between the Big 12’s two lowest-scoring teams.

DraftKings Sportsbook favors WVU as a 16-point favorite, setting odds against the spread at -110 for both teams. The over/under is set at 55 points, both options holding -110 odds.

FanDuel Sportsbook is the lowest on WVU, setting the Mountaineers at 15.5-point favorites. Both bets against the spread hold -110 odds. The over/under is also set at 55.5 points, both options holding -110 odds.

A moneyline bet for WVU holds -750 odds while the same bet for Kansas holds +490 odds.

Kansas is 3-8 against the spread this season, but the Jayhawks have covered in consecutive weeks. Kansas covered in a 12-point loss to Oklahoma, a win over Texas and a three-point loss to TCU last week. WVU is 6-5 against the spread this season, covering against Texas last week.

WVU is 9-1 all-time against Kansas, including 7-0 since a 31-19 loss in 2013. The Mountaineers won last season’s contest 38-17 at Milan Puskar Stadium in Morgantown.
