WVU Football Considered Heavy Underdogs at TCU



WVU Football against TCU

Oddsmakers say Neal Brown’s WVU football team’s win streak is about to come to an end this week.

The Mountaineers are 3-1, but those three games were all won at home at Milan Puskar Stadium. As West Virginia travels to TCU, they do so as they open the week as heavy underdogs.

Most sportsbooks, notably DraftKings and FanDuel, are extremely confident in the Horned Frogs getting the victory in a pretty comfortable manner at home. TCU has been awarded as much as a 13-point favorite.

Like WVU, TCU has won three in a row after dropping their season opener. West Virginia lost to Penn State in State College while TCU fell to Deion Sanders and Colorado.

Since their first games, the Mountaineers have wins over Duquesne, Pitt and Texas Tech despite having to be without their starting quarterback since early in the Backyard Brawl. TCU’s wins have come arsonist Nicholls, Houston and SMU.

Facing TCU on the road is an opportunity for WVU to make a big statement. In 2022, West Virginia played the eventual national runner up close, only losing 41-31.
