Bet on TCU Because…

TCU’s offense should be able to score points against West Virginia’s defense. The Mountaineers don’t allow a ton of points. West Virginia gives up less than 20 points per game at 19.4. But West Virginia does allow an average of 410.6 yards per game. The average yards allowed implies that West Virginia plays a bend but don’t break defense. Since TCU averages 530.7 yards and 40.2 point per game, it makes sense that the Horned Frogs are going to score some points in this matchup. 

Bet on West Virginia Because…

West Virginia’s defense has been solid in the past couple of games. The Mountaineers only allowed Kansas State to score 16 points in a 17 to 16 West Virginia win on Oct. 1. The Mountaineers gave up 17 points to Texas Tech in a 48 to 17 win over Texas Tech in Lubbock in their last. 

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

If West Virginia’s defense has gotten it going, the Mountaineers could easily cover the spread in this battle against TCU on Oct. 22. West Virginia’s offense is terrific.

The Mountaineers average 534.2 yards per game. They average 216.2 rushing yards and 318 passing yards per game. The balanced offensive attack leads to 32.8 points on average per matchup.

TCU could be in some trouble in this one. The Horned Frogs go into this game having beaten Kansas 24 to 23 as a -28 road favorite. If TCU isn’t on their toes, West Virginia could blow them out in this game.

I think that’s going to happen.

My final score prediction is West Virginia 49, TCU 26.
