Current Lines From Bovada Sportsbook

West Virginia (7-1, 4-1 Big 12):

The Mountaineers may be without running back Rushel Shell (503 yards, five touchdowns), who missed last week with an ankle injury, but a balanced offense was sparked last week by rushing efforts from Justin Crawford (129 yards) and Kennedy McKoy (127). Quarterback Skyler Howard, who had a 260-yard, three touchdown game last week, has completed 65.1 percent of his passes for 2,293 yards and 16 TDs. The senior connected for 104 yards to Daikiel Shorts and 102 to Shelton Gibson against Kansas.

Texas (5-4, 3-3):

The Longhorns may have salvaged their season on the recent strength of their improved defensive play after coach Charlie Strong took control of the play-calling four games ago. Foreman surpassed the 100-yard rushing mark in 10 straight games and with 1,446 yards this season averages 180.8 per game. The effectiveness of freshman quarterback Shane Buechele (2,257 yards, 19 touchdowns) to set up the run game could be as effective as Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph in leading the Cowboys to victory over West Virginia two weeks ago.
Team record: 5-4 SU,6-3 ATS
Texas is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Texas’s last 5 games
Texas is 5-0 ATS in its last 5 games at home
