Breaking Down the West Virginia Mountaineers Win Total

2020 College Football Season

West Virginia Mountaineers: 5.5 Wins -- Title Odds: 150/1

The West Virginia Mountaineers' expectations were high heading into 2019 season but everything was mostly a disappointment. West Virginia finished the season with only five wins, which wasn’t enough to get a bowl bid. Get free college football picks all season long at Pick Dawgz. 

The Mountaineers win total for the 2020 season is set at 5.5. Will they be able to go above that total? 

The Mountaineers got out to a fast start to the season last year, but once conference play rolled around they really struggled. Near the end of the season, they started to play better winning games on the road against TCU and Kansas State. The hope is heading into this season they can use some of that momentum they gained at the end of last season. 

The biggest question heading into this season is who will be the quarterback, or will they use two like last season. Austin Kendall and Jarret Doege both were under center for West Virginia last season and they both could see action, or maybe they will stick with just one guy this season. 

On defense, the Mountaineers are led by brothers Darius and Dante Stills who are both standouts. The Stills brothers do a great job of getting after the quarterback, and this season they are going to be leaned on.

Pick: Doege finished the season strong last year under center, and as long as West Virginia names him the starter, the Mountaineers are going to find success. Now they might not be competing to win the Big 12 but there is no reason why they won’t make a bowl game. Look for them to finish seven of eight wins, which will give a little breathing room in this bet cashing. This is one of the safest bets in the Big 12 and maybe across the entire college football landscape. People are really overlooking what West Virginia will be able to do this season.
