Each Wednesday, we will release an article on our thoughts on the spread and the over/under of West Virginia games. The star ratings next to the play describe the overall confidence in that particular play.
1 Star - Not very confident
2 Star - A little confident
3 Star - Fairly confident
4 Star - Very confident
5 Star - Should be a lock to happen
Spread: West Virginia -3.5
3 Star play on Kansas State covering: Kansas State is a sound football team on all three sides of the ball and let's face it, are much much better than the Mountaineers on special teams. You can guarantee that the Wildcats will come up with at least one big special teams play in this game, which could effect the outcome. With that said, I think they will be facing a ticked off Mountaineer team that has a sour taste in their mouth from last week so although I have Kansas State covering, I have West Virginia winning.
1 star play on the over: As I mentioned, I have the Mountaineers winning this game, but by a small margin of 24-23. Jarret Doege will come up big in the 4th quarter and deliver what will eventually be a game-winning drive. I like the over hitting despite how good both defenses can be. It's rather low total and I think both offenses can at least reach into the 20's. The trends will show to bet the under, but it looks too easy of a play to go under. If it were my choice, I would just stay away from this game all together.
Our picks vs spread: 2-3
Our picks vs over/under: 5-0
