Texas vs West Virginia 2019 College Football Week 6 Lines
The 12th-ranked Texas Longhorns will be looking to give their New Year’s Day bowl hopes a big shot in the arm when they hit the road to take on the West Virginia Mountaineers in their Week 6 Big 12 battle on Saturday. With both of these teams sitting at 3-1 and looking to give their conference championship hopes a big boost, let’s find out which team is offering the best value against their College Football betting odds in this one.
Texas vs West Virginia 2019 College Football Week 6 Lines & Game Prediction
Why Bet On Texas at -10.5?
The Longhorns look like a decent pick in this one because they’ve only lost once to an LSU team that looks like a legitimate championship contender this season. Texas has won two in a row and come into this matchup off a tight, 36-30 home win over Oklahoma State two weeks ago, although they came up just short of covering the chalk as a 7-point home favorite. Then, there’s the fact that Texas is averaging almost 16 points per game more than West Virginia in this one while ranking an impressive 13th nationally in scoring (41.8 ppg). The Longhorns have put 36 points or more on the board in all four of their games this season.
Why Bet On West Virginia at +10.5?
West Virginia looks like a great pick to cover the spread as a double-digit home dog for a handful of reasons. First, the Mountaineers have some momentum coming into this contest riding a modest two-game winning streak that includes a 29-24 win over Kansas last weekend as a 4.5-point road favorite. Then, there’s the fact that West Virginia has won three of the last four meetings in this conference rivalry including a 42-41 road win over the Horns last season as a 1-point underdog. Last but not least, the Mountaineers give up an identical amount of points as Texas in this contest and they’re playing at home as well.

Texas vs West Viriginia Expert Analysis and Prediction
I know the Mountaineers looked inept in their 38-7 Week 2 blowout road loss at Missouri and Texas’ only defeat this season was a thrilling 45-38 home loss against an elite LSU squad, but I’m going with the Mountaineers to at least cover the chalk in this contest.
Texas has gone an uninspiring 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 conference games and 0-4 ATS in their last four games following an SU win. West Virginia has gone 3-0-2 ATS in their last five home games, 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a bye week and 5-1-2 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record. I like the Longhorns to get the outright road win, but I’m going with the Mountaineers to cover the chalk in this Big 12 conference clash.
Pick: West Virginia +10.5
