The TCU Horned Frogs and West Virginia Mountaineers face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Milan Puskar Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2021 it was West Virginia that secured the 29-17 victory. 

TCU comes into this game with a perfect 7-0 record and they have gone 5-1-1 against the spread. In the last game against Kansas State, they were down 28-17 at halftime but they outscored the Wildcats 21-0 in the second half. Max Duggan is having a strong season and in the last game, he completed 17 of his 26 passes for 280 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions. TCU is averaging 44.7 points while their defense is giving up 26.7 points per game. The offense is the third-best in football, and in this game, they are going to need to lean on the offense. 

On the other side of this matchup is West Virginia who sits with a 3-4 record overall but they are coming off a blowout loss in the last game. West Virginia only scored 10 points against Texas Tech, and that led to the 38-point loss. JT Daniels really struggled finishing the game completing 23 of his 36 passes for 194 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions. Two games ago against Baylor, West Virginia was able to secure a 43-40 victory. West Virginia is averaging 34.9 points while their defense is giving up 33.7 points per game. 

The Horned Frogs are 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven games overall. West Virginia is 11-3-1 against the spread in their last 15 games. The under is 7-1 in the last eight meetings. TCU is 0-6 against the spread in their last six meetings against West Virginia. 

The trends point towards the under, but I think this game is going to go over the total. TCU is averaging 44.7 points per game and they are going to run up the score against this West Virginia defense that gave up 48 points in the last game. I expect a better game from JT Daniels, and this game will go over the total. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
