UNDER The Prevailing Trend Between TCU, WVU

Offense has been surprisingly hard to come by when the TCU Horned Frogs and West Virginia Mountaineers have faced off. TCU and WVU have gone UNDER in their past three meetings, with the two programs averaging a combined 51.7 points per game. That might be tough to continue when TCU and West Virginia meet in Fort Worth on Saturday, as the two teams rank fifth and second respectively in points per game in the nation. 

Shark Bites
  • TCU is 3-7 ATS in its last 10 games against the Big 12.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of West Virginia’s last 8 games on the road.
  • West Virginia is 3-1 ATS in its last 4 games against TCU.

The Horned Frogs’ well-balanced offense has accounted for nearly 500 yards per game while putting up 55-plus points twice in four outings. Quarterback Kenny Hill has become an efficient passer, thanks largely to his improved discipline, while leading rusher Darius Anderson is averaging 6.2 yards per carry.

A loss in their season opener has caused many to overlook West Virginia but their offense has gone on to average 57 points and 595.7 yards per game. The opposition has not been great but the signs are positive. Quarterback Will Grier has been the perfect complement to senior running back Justin Crawford, who is averaging 7.4 yards per carry.
