West Virginia and Virginia Tech are set to do battle once again at Cassell Coliseum Wednesday evening, where the Mountaineers will be seeking to right the ship for their backers.
- West Virginia is 9-2 ATS in its last 11 games as favorites.
- Virginia Tech is 4-26 SU in its last 30 games as underdogs.
- The total has gone UNDER in West Virginia's last five games on the road.
The Mountaineers are a paltry 1-6 ATS in their last seven against the Hokies. In fact, the favored team is just 3-10 ATS in the last 13 meetings between West Virginia and Virginia Tech.
West Virginia opened the season by winning seven straight before falling to Virginia on Dec. 8, but have fared much better since. The Mountaineers have won their previous three contests by an average of 28 points thanks largely due to the play of senior guard Jaysean Paige and junior Devin Williams.
Just how good have the Mountaineers been this season? WVU has only trailed for 45 out of a possible 440 minutes this year, with five opponents not registering a single lead against them.
