It is another action-packed weekend at West Virginia online sportsbooks. Both Saturday and Sunday are loaded with more than enough football games to wager on.
WVU football looks to move to 4-1 with a win against Texas Tech. The Red Raiders are just 1-3 overall and winless within the Big 12.
A victory would be massive for the Mountaineers and coach Neal Brown. With teams like Oklahoma and Texas stumbling out of the gate, the conference is fairly wide open for the taking.
WVU is favored slightly in its early-evening Saturday matchup. This game starts at 5:30 p.m. ET, an odd time for most college football contests.
Of course, there are lots of other college football betting opportunities on Saturday. For the first time this season, sportsbooks include odds for the Big Ten Conference.
After initially deciding to postpone fall sports, the conference is back this weekend playing their first games of the season.
The most notable game is between No. 18 Michigan and No. 21 Minnesota. Both sides are looking to get off to a good start and challenge No. 5 Ohio State for the Big Ten crown.
On Sunday, the NFL delivers another amazing slate of games. Week 7 features 12 more games this weekend, with several interesting matchups.
Many local bettors may have their attention on the battle for Ohio between the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals.
There are other available markets off the football field, as well.
Major League Baseball’s World Series is underway, and UFC 254 offers plenty of great fights all day Saturday.
It’s now extremely easy for residents in the Mountain State to place online sports bets. The state has multiple online platforms available, including:
WVU Football vs. Texas Tech Preview
The Mountaineers will probably receive a lot of wagers this weekend. They’re in a position to grab their fourth win of the young season and actually contend in the conference.
WVU is looking good lately, especially on the defensive side of the ball. The defense limited Kansas to just 157 total yards and seven first downs a week ago.
On offense, quarterback Jarret Doege is playing well and is getting plenty of help. Running back Leddie Brown is on a tear lately and is a vital part of the game plan.
He’s now rushed for over 500 yards and five touchdowns this year while averaging nearly 6.5 yards per carry.
WVU will most likely continue riding his hot hand.
At DraftKings Sportsbook, the Mountaineers are giving -3 points, with a moneyline of -159. Texas Tech is available receiving the +3, or with moneyline odds of +125.
The online sportsbook sees this as fairly high scoring, with the game’s total set at 54 points right now.
Another Big 12 game on the board is a good one between No. 17 Iowa State and No. 6 Oklahoma State. Both are still undefeated in conference play.
DraftKings shows Oklahoma State as a slight favorite at home. The Cowboys are laying -3.5, with a moneyline of -162. Bettors can take the Cyclones getting the points or to win outright at +130.
The highly-anticipated affair in the Big Ten has similar betting odds.
Michigan is giving -3 in the point spread, with a moneyline of -152. Minnesota is grabbing the +3 and has moneyline odds of +123.
DraftKings includes more than just standard lines, though. It lists several games and team props for the majority of games.
For this game, you’re able to wager on which team will score first. Michigan has odds of -127, while Minnesota is shown at -107.

NFL Betting At WV Sportsbooks
Once you’re done with a day full of college football, you can turn to the NFL on Sunday. There are lots of teams starting to separate themselves from the pretenders. However, injuries play a large role in that.
Several teams are in difficult stretches at the moment because they’re missing a few of their key contributors.
Still, Week 7 offers a lot of excitement and quality football games.
One of the most exciting should be the second meeting between the Browns and Bengals. The two met Week 2, with Cleveland narrowly winning by five, 35-30.
This week should have similar results and be another high-scoring contest.
FanDuel Sportsbook lists the Browns as 3.5-point favorites, with a moneyline of -188. Bettors can take the Bengals getting the +3.5 or their moneyline odds at +158.
The game’s total is posted at 50.5 points.
One of the more popular props available on the online sportsbook is determining the game’s winning margin. FanDuel has the current odds up at the moment:
- Browns 1-13 +145
- Bengals 1-13 +200
- Browns 14+ +270
- Bengals 14+ +650
The Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals game in the late session should also be fun to watch. Both sides feature an explosive offense that can score in just one play thanks to quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Kyler Murray.
FanDuel has Seattle as the favorite, giving -3.5 in the spread. The Seahawks’ moneyline is currently at -186.
Arizona is the home underdog, receiving the +3.5, with a moneyline of +156.
This matchup includes the second-highest total of the week in the NFL. It’s set at 55.5 points.
Perhaps you are interested in taking some action on the first half of this one. Bettors can take Seattle’s first-half moneyline of -174 or Arizona’s at +142.
Other NFL Odds
Tennessee Titans -1.5 (Moneyline: -118) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers +1.5 (Moneyline: +100)
Washington Football Team +1 (Moneyline: -102) vs. Dallas Cowboys -1 (Moneyline: -116)

Betting On UFC 254 And The World Series
WV sportsbooks do have additional markets other than football.
The World Series got started this week to determine MLB’s champion during this shortened season. Through two games, both the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays have one win under their belt.
Despite coming into this as the underdog, Tampa Bay has more than enough confidence after defeating the New York Yankees and Houston Astros.
You’re always able to wager on individual games, but the online sportsbooks in WV have you covered with updated futures odds, too.
Currently, BetMGM Sportsbook shows the Dodgers as the favorite to win still with odds of -200. You can put action down on the Rays to win it all at +165.
Sportsbooks will likely also see many wagers on UFC 254 this weekend.
The main event from the MMA fight this weekend includes a lightweight title bout between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje.
While there is a lot of optimism around the American, Gaethje, he doesn’t have great odds of pulling the upset. According to BetMGM, it has Gaethje at +275 to win, whereas Nurmagomedov’s moneyline is -358.
As always, the online sportsbook lists props for the fight, as well. You can bet on whether or not it goes the distance, which is five rounds for this bout.
BetMGM shows Yes at +180, while the No option is at -223.
