West Virginia has won three games in a row, including a 41-27 victory over the Baylor Bears as 8.5-point home underdogs last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total in all of those affairs. The Mountaineers are being led offensively by quarterback Clint Trickett, which is important to consider when making your Week 9 college football betting picks, as he’s passed for 300 or more yards in a school-record eight straight games. Kevin White has been his main target—the national leader in averaging 145.7 receiving yards per game. West Virginia is 7-2-1 ATS in its last 10 opportunities as road underdogs of three or fewer points.
The Mountaineers have produced 30 games with 400 or more yards of total offense during the Dana Holgorsen era, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football betting lines. West Virginia needs to when the turnover battle in this Big 12 Conference matchup, as it has compiled a 69-10 SU record when accomplishing that feat since the 2002 campaign. On the defensive side of the ball, the unit ranks 17th nationally in averaging 4.7 three-and-outs per game.
Oklahoma State had its five-game win streak snapped in suffering a deflating 42-9 defeat to the TCU Horned Frogs as 10.5-point road underdogs in Week 8, as it was out-gained by a 417-yard margin. The Cowboys own a 50-35-7 SU all-time Homecoming record, including wins in 26 of its last 40 games in that situation. It’s important to point out that the program has put together a 22-2 mark in its last 24 games played at Boone Pickens Stadium.
The Cowboys are 9-7 in their last 16 games versus top-25 opponents, as they try to even this all-time series at three wins apiece. Oklahoma State is certainly familiar with Holgorsen’s system, as he served as the school’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach under longtime head coach Mike Gundy in 2010. The school had its streak of scoring 20 or more points in 58 consecutive games snapped last week, which happened to be the longest active run in the country.
Sports bettors will likely back the Mountaineers due to the Cowboys being 2-4 ATS in their last six games following a conference loss.
