West Virginia Mountaineers Betting Odds – Inconsistent Mountaineers will fall short in March

Posted by Washington Tucker on 3/8/2010 3:37:07 PM

West Virginia was an early online betting darkhorse for the NCAA title, and they still could make some noise in the NCAA Tournament. But for all their talent and great coaching, the Mountaineers can’t be trusted when it comes to winning it all, and unless they find some semblance of consistency over the next month, they will be looking at an early exit.

  • West Virginia Mountaineers Betting Odds: +1000 to win NCAA Championship
  • West Virginia has never won the national title
  • Butler, Ebanks are powerful forward duo
  • Mountaineers need to be more consistent

st Virginia Mountaineers Betting Odds – They Will Go Far In The NCAA Tournament Because…
The Mountaineers managed to navigate through the Big East, the toughest conference in the country, and that has tested their mettle throughout the season. West Virginia can score inside and out, they’re one of the best rebounding teams in the country, and they take care of the ball. They also have a go-to player in Da’Sean Butler, who picked up his game in the final weekend of the regular season. The Mountaineers also have a nice mix of youth and experience, but they need to put it all together against the best teams in the country.

West Virginia Mountaineers Betting Odds –They Exit Out Of The Tournament Early Because…
NCAA basketball betting players have been skeptical of West Virginia this year, and even with a 13-5 record in the Big East, it’s tough to put your finger on them. They split games with Villanova, losing at home, then winning on the road in overtime. The same deal happened with their rivals at Pitt, but this time, the home team won each time. You just never know which West Virginia team you’re going to get, especially when they leave Morgantown.

West Virginia Mountaineers Betting Odds – Best Player
Butler is a senior forward whose field-goal percentage went down this year, but he’s the Mountaineers’ most aggressive player and he loves to get to the free-throw line. Look for the ball to go to Butler when the Mountaineers get in trouble, and he can also dish the ball as he’s tied for the West Virginia lead in assists

West Virginia Mountaineers Betting Odds – X-Factor
Devin Ebanks will probably take over for Butler next season, and as a sophomore, coach Bob Huggins have put a lot of responsibility in his hands. Ebanks leads the Mountaineers in rebounding and he’s probably their best defensive player as well. Take their season finale against Villanova, when he harassed the Wildcats’ Scottie Reynolds all over the floor, making up for his brain cramp at the end of regulation when he failed to notice how much time was on the clock and forced up an unlikely three-pointer.

West Virginia Mountaineers Betting Odds – March Madness Prediction
The Mountaineers are lumped in with the field in your sportsbook at +1000, and that’s due to their inconsistency against the best team, and the fact that you don’t know which West Virginia team will show up outside of their own building. Huggins gives these players a boost as he’s supremely confidence in himself, but that hasn’t always rubbed off on his team. The Mountaineers may have received a boost with their late win at Villanova, in which they came back from a 13-point halftime deficit, but you also have to watch their performance in the Big East tournament. They have the talent to win it all, but they can also go out in the first round as well.
