Opening Odds Analysis

West Virginia opened as a 9-point favorite on the road against a TCU team that hasn’t fared well in this matchup over the past few years, winning just three of the last 10 meetings. The total for this contest opened at 147.5.

West Virginia News & Notes

The Mountaineers have won five straight on the road and have averaged more than 84 points per contest over their past seven games. Interestingly enough, this team’s numbers in almost every offensive category are better on the road than at home.

West Virginia is coming off an 84-82 comeback victory against a very gritty Texas team, rallying from 19 points down to win late on the road. Leading the way offensively is sophomore guard Miles McBride, who scores 16.2 points per night. The team’s likely MVP, Derek Culver, averages an under-the-radar double-double at 15.0 points and 10.1 rebounds per game.

TCU News & Notes

The Horned Frogs are in the midst of a horrid stretch, winning only two of their last nine games entering a crucial stretch of the season. TCU is coming off its worst shooting performance of the year, hitting under 32 percent from the field on Saturday in a 62-54 loss to Kansas State.

Head coach Jamie Dixon has toyed with his lineup plenty this season, starting a total of 10 players at some point during the campaign. The top producer has been junior guard RJ Nembhard, who averages just shy of 17 points per contest. Nembhard tops the team in minutes and assists as well.

Betting Pick: UNDER 147.5

This number reflects West Virginia’s recent offensive prowess, with the Mountaineers cashing seven straight OVERs. But these teams combined for 127 points a year ago and TCU starts three juniors who are familiar with a very slow offensive set. The Horned Frogs will have a tough time getting to 65 points.
