We have reached week eight of the college football season, and most players are now in the conference portion of their season.
In this one it’s a Big 12 showdown on Saturday in Waco.
The West Virginia Mountaineers make the trip to take on the Baylor Bears. The Mountaineers have won three of the five games played between the two teams.
Last year the Mountaineers won 24-21.
West Virginia Mountaineers
The West Virginia Mountaineers have had a pretty good season with their only two losses coming against teams that were top 15 at the time of the loss.
They almost picked up their third loss of the season last weekend but it just wasn’t meant to be. They fell behind Texas Tech and the offense looked terrible early and it didn’t look good.
But in the second half the offense started to click and that led to a 46-35 victory. So even after being down early they were still able to cover the -5.5 spread.
The offense for the Mountaineers is Florida transfer Will Grier who has played really well this season. He comes into this game having thrown for 2092 yards and 21 touchdowns.
He also has five touchdowns which is a bit concerning and he needs to keep those down the second half of the season.
To win this game the Mountaineers just need to play their game. They are the better team and the offense needs to try and get in an early groove.
On the other side of this match up is the Baylor Bears who’s season couldn’t get any worse. With all the off field issues this school has had it has really hurt the recruiting and the talent they have been able to put on the field this year.
They come into this game with an 0-6 record, and it has been really ugly in almost every game. If there is one bright side to take away from the season in terms of betting they have been able to cover the spread in two of the last three games.
In the last game against they took on the Oklahoma State Cowboys and it was really ugly. The defense had problems stopping the high powered offense of the Cowboys and the offense had all kinds of issues scoring and that led to a 59-16 defeat.
To win this game it’s going to probably take a perfect storm but it has to start on the defensive side of the field.
They have to find a way to slow down Will Grier and the Mountaineers high powered offense.
