Ricky’s Free play on West Virginia -5.5:
Key Angle: It’s important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn’t share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. In tonight’s game there’s no doubt that the poor play of Texas Tech is particularly significant. The Red Raiders had their sights set on a BIG12 title just a few weeks ago, but they come into Morgantown off three straight losses. They are coming off a particularly tough loss at home to Kansas, and that’s the kind of defeat that is pretty tough to put behind you. I expect the Red Raiders to suffer a let down here against a hot West Virginia team.
– The Red Raiders are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 versus the Big 12.
– The Red Raiders are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
– The Mountaineers are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 home games versus teams with a winning road record.
Verdict: Take WVU -5.5
