Following Eastern Kentucky’s lopsided 59-0 loss at Marshall last week, oddsmakers were slow to release any betting lines for the Colonels trip to Morgantown to take on West Virginia this week.

Point spreads and over/under numbers for college football games are usually released by major sportsbooks and oddsmakers on Sundays, but the Mountaineers and EKU were nowhere to be found when the other games were coming out to start the week. On Tuesday, however, that changed.

WVU is currently listed as a 40.5 favorite by Draft Kings against Eastern Kentucky on Saturday, with the current over/under set at 55.5 points. According to, the Mountaineers opened as a 34.5 point favorite, but the line quickly moved.
