If West Virginia is to get its first win against Oklahoma since joining the Big 12, the Mountaineers will have to do so as double-digit underdogs at home this weekend in the regular season finale.

WVU (5-4, 4-4 Big 12) opened as an 11-point underdog when betting lines were released Sunday by BetOnline with an over/under of 58.5 points. When the Mountaineers and Sooners were originally scheduled to play on Nov. 28, Oklahoma (7-2, 6-2 Big 12) opened as a 10.5 point favorite with an over/under set at 55.5 points. West Virginia is 5-4 against the spread this season, with five of the nine games going under.

The Mountaineers and Oklahoma close the regular season on Saturday with a scheduled noon kickoff at Milan Puskar Stadium in Morgantown. The game will be broadcast on ABC.
