The Texas Longhorns and West Virginia Mountaineers face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at WVU Coliseum. When these two teams faced off on January 1st it was Texas that won 74-59. 

Marcus Carr was the best player for Texas scoring 20 points and grabbing four rebounds. Jalen Bridges was the top player for West Virginia scoring 18 points and grabbing six rebounds. 

Texas comes into this game with a 20-8 record and they have gone 12-16 against the spread. Texas has had some bad losses this season, but they are coming off a victory. In the last game against TCU, the offense scored 75 points, and that led to the nine point victory. Texas is averaging 68.6 points while their defense is giving up 58 points per game. Forward Timmy Allen has been the top player for Texas averaging 11.9 points while shooting 52.3 percent from the field and 26.7 percent from behind the three point line.

Coming into this game West Virginia has lost five games in a row including the last game against Iowa State where they gave up 84 points. West Virginia’s defense has been an issue at times, and they are going to need the defense to be better in this game. West Virginia is averaging 68.3 points while their defense is giving up 68 points per game. Taz Sherman has been the top player for West Virginia averaging 18.5 points while shooting 42.1 percent from the field and 34.8 percent from behind the three point line. 

Texas is 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games played on Saturday. Texas is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games following a straight up win. The over is 5-0 in Texas' last five road games. The over is 14-3 in West Virginia’s last 17 games overall. 

Texas is a strong defensive team, but they have played down to their competition and I think that will let them down again in this game. Look for West Virginia to find offensive success against Texas, and they are going to find a way to keep this game close. Back West Virginia against the spread.
