TCU West Virginia Betting Predictions – WVU. TCU In Tough Spot Heading In To Big 12 Showdown

Posted by Blake Frazier on 11/1/2012 5:19:11 PM

After taking the sports betting world by storm through their first five games, the 21st-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers have looked very pedestrian in each of consecutive losses to Texas Tech and Kansas State. After an extra week off to work on what has gone wrong recently, senior quarterback Geno Smith and company hope that they have finally got it right. The other new member of the Big 12 hasn’t been any better recently as TCU has also dropped consecutive games, making this as close to a must-win situation for both teams as it can be.

After establishing himself as a legitimate Heisman trophy candidate with 25 combined touchdowns with both his legs and arm through five games, Smith has taken a step back with just two touchdowns in the last two contests. He also threw his first two interceptions of the season against Kansas State, a strong indication he is pressing.

Hoping to avoid losing three in a row for the first time since a four-game slide in 1998, TCU will need to make sure that Smith stays down after struggling in each of his last two games. The Horned Frogs had posted four-straight wins over Top 25 opponents before losing to Texas Tech in triple overtime two weeks ago, but looked very limited in last week’s road loss to Oklahoma State. Freshman quarterback Trevone Boykin looks like he will be able to replace Casey Pachall once again despite a knee injury, but this is another one of those games where TCU will really miss its starting quarterback.

Handicapped by their inability to stop anyone, the Mountaineers have lived and died by their offense again this season and the recent results have been humbling. After opening with five-straight wins, West Virginia has lost its last two by a combined 76 points, allowing totals of 49 and 55 in consecutive weeks while scoring just 14 points in each of those loss’s. A defense that ranks 118th in the nation in points allowed will at least be fortunate to avoid the Horned Frogs’ real starter, but that won’t make things any easier on Smith and company as WVU look to get back on track.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

This Mountaineers’ team will only go as far as Smith and the offense will take it, and after spending an extra week working out the problems that it dealt with in consecutive losses, it makes sense that they will get things back on track. TCU has also been pretty awful on the defensive side of the ball this season, and this game could come down to which team scores last. West Virginia is at home and coming off its bye, so they should cover the online sportsbook spread in this spot.
