The West Virginia Mountaineers will be gunning for their 10th straight up win in their past 11 outings when they visit the Texas Tech Raiders on Saturday afternoon for a Week 7 clash between Big 12 conference rivals at Jones AT&T Stadium.
- West Virginia is 3-7 SU in its last 10 games against teams with winning records.
- Texas Tech is 5-0 ATS in its last five games against its conference.
- The total has gone UNDER in 19 of West Virginia’s last 26 games.
The Mountaineers enjoyed a bye last weekend after improving their season record to 4-0 SU with a narrow 17-16 home win over Kansas State. West Virginia hits the road for the first time this season riding a five-game SU win streak, but have been a betting disappointment, failing to cover in their past three, and five of six overall.
The Red Raiders return home following their first SU defeat of the year, a 44-38 loss to Kansas State, that drops them to 3-1 on the year, 1-1 versus conference rivals. Unlike the Mountaineers, Texas Tech has regularly paid at the sportsbooks, going 7-1 against the spread in their past eight, and is undefeated, SU and ATS, in four straight on home turf.
West Virginia holds the edge in recent clashes with the Red Raiders, picking up straight up wins the past two seasons, but are winless ATS in their past four, failing to cover as 5.5-point road favorites in 2014, and 7.5-point home chalk a year ago.
