*4 Star Play on West Virginia* The West Virginia Mountaineers had a misleading final score last week. Oklahoma State had a defensive touchdown against them. Though the Mountaineers lost by two touchdowns, the stats say that was a very close game.
Baylor had a really misleading game last week in their favor. The Bears averaged just 5.25 yards per play against a bad Kansas Jayhawks team. They ran two kickoffs back for a touchdown in that game. They won't be able to do that on a weekly basis. The Bears don't have the talent at wide receiver they had a year ago. They return only two starters on defense from a year ago.
Neal Brown's West Virginia Mountaineers should be much improved in year two of Brown's time at the school. I like their defensive front quite a bit. This group should be tough to run on all year, and they should get pressure on opposing quarterbacks as well.
The weakness of the West Virginia team overall is their offensive line, but the Baylor defensive front is their weakness this season. Look for West Virginia's offense to work better in this game than it did a week ago.
Baylor is a question mark for me this year, and West Virginia is getting a field goal on their home field.
Take West Virginia plus the points here and put a little bit of this bet on the moneyline also.
