West Virginia tagged as three-possession underdogs vs Baylor



For the second game in a row, West Virginia has been tagged as heavy underdogs on the road versus a ranked opponent.

The Mountaineers have been set as 19-point underdogs against the undefeated Baylor Bears. This comes after being 33.5 point underdogs on the road against then-No. 5 Oklahoma two weeks ago.

The Mountaineers (3-4, 1-3 Big 12) will travel to Waco, Texas to take on the Bears for a Halloween match up on Thursday. Baylor (7-0, 4-0) is currently ranked No. 12 in the nation and is also coming off of a bye week.

The Bears are scoring 38.9 points per game this season while only allowing 19.1. In contrast, the Mountaineers are scoring 22.7 points per game this season and allowing 33.4.

The game will kickoff at 8 p.m. EST and be broadcast on ESPN.
