Nobody is smarter than Las Vegas when it comes to understanding the game of football. As you know, the point of the lines is to drive the betting action to a 50-50 split. To make this happen, Vegas has demonstrated that WVU is a great football team. Case in point:
WVU @ South Florida
Line: WVU -6
South Florida @ Rutgers
Line: South Florida -2
WVU @ Rutgers
Now, I understand the Rutgers/USF game was at night, but Vegas is showing WVU a lot of respect with this line Saturday. Basically saying the Mountaineers are the best team in the Big East. Now, they have to go out and prove it.
Was this post necessary or even helpful? No, probably not. But, I gotta do something to pass the time till Saturday at Noon.
Editor’s Note: Are we also 10 points better than Kentucky? Case in point:
Mississippi State @ WVU last week: +24.5
Mississippi State @ Kentucky this week: +13.5
