West Virginia Sportsbooks Have Mountaineers Staying Winless In Big 12 Play Saturday

Posted on October 2, 2020

After a narrow loss at Oklahoma State to open Big 12 play last weekend, the lines on WVU Football look familiar again this week. For the second week in a row, the Mountaineers odds predict a narrow loss for WVU.

The rest of this weekend offers action on the NBA Finals along with MLB playoffs and NFL Week 4. One of the regional NFL teams’ situation is up in the air, however.

A look at the latest Mountaineer football odds

The West Virginia online sportsbooks have the Mountaineers as a consensus 2.5-point underdog on Friday morning. The odds vary somewhat, however, at the following four books.

The game, which is set for noon ET on ABC on Saturday, will be just the second of the season for Baylor, which got its first Big 12 win over Kansas on its home field last weekend. Both of Baylor’s previous attempts to play non-conference games got axed due to COVID-19 concerns.

Regardless, sportsbooks like the Bears this weekend due to concerns that the Mountaineers offense not keeping pace with their defense put on display at Oklahoma State last weekend. WVU held the 15th-ranked Cowboys to just 27 points but could only muster 13 points.

Bettors should note that WVU is just 1-3-1 against the spread in its past five home games. The Mountaineers are 0-3-1 ATS in that stretch when a home underdog.

At the same time, Baylor is 5-1 ATS in its last six road games and the Bears have covered in each of their previous six conference games. Given, most of those games took place last season. One game under a new head coach is an extremely small sample for this year’s team.

WV online sports betting customers are starting to get a better idea of how regional NFL teams look, as the NFL is now in the fourth week of its regular season. One nearby fan base is unsure of when it will get to see its favorite team play as of right now.

Lines on regional NFL Week 4 games

NFL betting on Sunday’s matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans took a turn this week. It was supposed to be a showdown between division-leading, undefeated teams. Instead, sportsbooks aren’t taking action on that game right now.

Three Tennessee players tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week, prompting a cessation of team activities. The Titans won’t hold any face-to-face meetings at least through Saturday.

Right now, the NFL hasn’t announced a new date and time for the game, but it will likely be later in the season.

As soon as the NFL announces a new date, expect online sportsbooks to start taking action on the game again. For now, however, none of them have markets live for Pittsburgh at Tennessee.

If you’re considering lines on other regional NFL games, those are all a go. WV sportsbooks expect the Cincinnati Bengals to get their first win of the season to start off the slate.

The Baltimore Ravens have a chance to bounce back from their first loss of the season at the expense of the other team that plays its home games in Maryland. WV sportsbooks like them to do so by a huge margin.

Sportsbooks aren’t as generous to the Cleveland Browns this week, however. While the spread isn’t two touchdowns, the Dallas Cowboys are still a somewhat comfortable favorite.

The Sunday night game this week features the Philadelphia Eagles. While a national spotlight may be good for the franchise’s business, sportsbooks don’t foresee a first win of the season for Philly.

MLB playoffs, NBA Finals promos at WV sportsbooks

If you’ve never placed a bet with BetMGM Sportbook before, the NBA Finals are a great time to give it a try. New customers can take advantage of a tremendous betting bonus – the return on a wager of just one dollar during the series.

Just wager a dollar on any pre-game moneyline market on either side for any NBA Finals game. If either team hits a 3-point attempt during the game, BetMGM will credit your account with $100 in site credit.

FanDuel Sportsbook continues its 7th Inning Stretch Insurance for the playoffs. Place a $50 or less pre-game, moneyline wager on either side of any MLB playoff game to participate.

If the team you staked has a lead going into the bottom of the seventh inning but blows its lead and loses the game, FanDuel will refund the value of your wager in site credit.

William Hill Sportsbook has a special promo for both events this weekend. For each day that both an MLB playoff and NBA Finals game take place, bet at least $25 on both events. William Hill will give you $25 in site credit for doing so.

Friday and Tuesday are opportunities to use that promo if everything goes according to plan. Hopefully, your plans to win some cash on football wagering this weekend will prove successful as well.
