There are a lot of “I don’t know” factors here to chew on in this game. We really don’t know if the Mountaineers are as bad on offense as they have seemed in games against the Terrapins and the Sooners or whether they are going to be relatively competent under the direction of a man in Head Coach Dana Holgorsen who has historically been a good offensive coach. We really don’t know if these scandals in Stillwater that were uncovered and reported by Sports Illustrated are going to come back to haunt the program, especially knowing that there have been two weeks to dive into this since the last time the Pokes played a game. We also don’t know if the defense is anywhere near respectable yet this season for the Cowboys.
Here’s what we do know, though. We do know that the Cowboys are going to have to come up with their best foot forward offensively if they are going to beat the NCAA football odds in this game. QB JW Walsh had better be incredibly efficient and be prepared to have to put at least 40 on the board in order to make sure that his team has done enough to cover. We also know that West Virginia has covered its last four conference games. The Mountaineers might only be 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games at home against teams with winning road records, but that might be a slightly deceiving stat. What’s not deceiving? Okie State is 1-6 ATS in its last seven road games, including losing from an ATS standpoint a few weeks ago against a similar spread versus UTSA.
