It’s been a rough few weeks for West Virginia, losing back-to-back Big 12 games against Texas Tech and Baylor, before last week’s bye, and the odds that WVU bounces back this week aren’t too encouraging.
The Mountaineers open as a two-point underdog against TCU this week, with the over/under set at 56.5 points in a game at Amon Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas.
