TCU Horned Frogs vs. No. 21 West Virginia Mountaineers Preview

WVU’s has the offense led by one-time Heisman favorite QB Geno Smith, but their defense has really struggled giving up 49 and 55 points in their last 2 games. NCAAF lines have WVU as a 6.5-point home favorite with a total of 68.

In their last games TCU lost to Oklahoma State 36-14 and WVU lost to Kansas State 55-14.


On the season TCU is 3-5 ATS with an Over/Under record of 3-4 and WVU is 2-5 ATS with an Over/Under record of 3-3.

WVU is coming off a bye week so they will be rested for this game. Their D has not only struggled, but their offense has as well. In their first 5 games the Mountaineers averaged 52 ppg, but they have only scored 14 in each of their last 2 games. Smith has only averaged 209 passing yards per game in WVU’s 2-game losing streak. He has a great WR corps with a couple of WR’s with over 780 receiving yards and Smith will be facing a Horned Frogs defense that ranks 63rd in the nation. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

WVU Andrew Buie has rushed for 120 yards in his last 2 games, but he has a tough task since the TCU run defense ranks 12th in the nation.

TCU QB Trevone Boykin was injured in the loss to Texas Tech, but should be ready for this game. He is only 1-3 since taking over for Casey Pachall, who was suspended for the season. He has some solid targets and in the game against OSU he only passed for 185 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT. However, there is a good chance he will have a good game since the WVU pass defense ranks dead last in the nation.

B.J. Catalon and Matthew Tucker pace the TCU rushing offense and while the WVU pass defense has been shredded their rushing defense ranks 35th in the nation.

Something has got to give in this game, as TCU has not lost 4 straight since the 1998 season and WVU has not lost 2 straight at home since the 2003 season.

In some betting trends for this Big 12 game TCU is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games, 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a S.U. loss, and they have an Under record of 5-2 in their last 7 road games.

WVU is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss, and they have an Over record of 7-3 in their last 10 home games.

Jason’s Pick: I think the bye week is exactly what WVU needed and Smith will have a good game and light up the Horned Frogs and the Mountaineers will get back in the W column and they will cover the spread.
