|Last week this West Virginia squad surrendered 56 points to Baylor...IN THE FIRST HALF!!! Texas Tech has a very good offense, #6 in the country to be exact and racked up 666 yards last week with their best QB out of the game with a knee injury.

Texas Tech has three bonafide RB's who all gained at least 80 yards last week against Iowa State.
The line drops from -8 to -5 within a matter of days. Making folks scared of TTU playing in Morgantown. If this game where in Lubbock, Tech would probably be favored by -14. I've looked into this "Morgantown mystique"...Since 2010 West Virginia is 2-1 ATS as a home dog, 1-2 SU in those same contests. This is not enough for me to believe the hype.
West Virginia is starting for the third straight game Clint Trickett. This is the same Clint Trickett that was third string QB at FSU who transferred to West Virginia to be...you guessed it the third string QB. Trickett is completing 43.1 percent of his passes and only completed 32.1 percent last week @ Baylor.
With as much offense as Texas Tech has WVU will be playing from behind relying on a 43 percent passer.
Give me Texas Tech -5 and Over 57
