West Virginia vs Texas Longhorns

January 8, 2021

The Pick: Longhorns +1.5

The West Virginia vs Texas Longhorns will face off at 1:00 PM ET on Saturday, January 9th in the WVU Coliseum. These two teams have faced off numerous times recently as Big 12 foes, and it’s been Texas with the 4-2 advantage since 2017. They won all but one of those games as an underdog.

Neither of these teams have had too much success in the past few seasons and each fan base has far loftier expectations. The Longhorns have been led by HC Shaka Smart since 2015, while the Mountaineers have been coached by Bob Huggins since 2007. Both coaches are well-rounded and these are two well-coached squads. The Mountaineers are the only team between the two to reach the Sweet Sixteen in the past five seasons, reaching in both 2017 and 2018.

The Longhorns will come in as favorites here for the first time in three seasons. Neither the Texas Longhorns nor West Virginia Mountaineers have ever won an NCAA Championship.

Historically, the Texas Longhorns hold a slight advantage, winning 12 of 21 all-time matchups. These two teams joined the same conference in 2012, which is when they started playing each other on a yearly basis.

We’re here to bring you the best possible predictions against the spread for this Big 12 matchup between the Texas Longhorns and West Virginia Mountaineers.

West Virginia vs Texas Longhorns Against the Spread Predictions

Betting against the spread is when you bet whether or not a team will win or lose by more or less than a certain number. For example, if the Texas Longhorns are five-point favorites, it would look like this.

  • Texas Longhorns (-5) vs. West Virginia Mountaineers

In this case, a bet on the Texas Longhorns would require them to win by six or more points to cash. If you bet on the Mountaineers, you need them to either win the game or lose by less than five points. If the Longhorns win by exactly five points, both sides of the bet would push and your money would be returned. Make sure to understand exactly what you need to happen when making a bet against the spread.

Texas vs. West Virginia Mountaineers Over / Under Betting

These are two teams that typically like to play slow, but sportsbooks know that and they will adjust the spread accordingly. When making over/under bets in College Basketball, there are a multitude of factors to consider. Those include lineup changes, injuries, and scheduling. A team might play a lot slower if they’ve played five games in the past ten days. They might also play a bit out of control if they haven’t taken the court in two weeks. These are all things to consider when betting the over/under in the matchup between the Texas Longhorns and West Virginia Mountaineers.

Texas vs. West Virginia Mountaineers Moneyline Predictions

Betting the moneyline refers to picking the straight-up winner of a game. Instead of books getting their edge against the spread, they charge you or reward you for betting either the favorite or underdog to win outright. The Texas Longhorns hold a 12-9 historical advantage over West Virginia and have won four of the last five. Depending on the odds, a moneyline bet on the Texas Longhorns might not be the worst idea ever. They seem to hold a clear advantage over West Virginia when it comes to winning this matchup. 

West Virginia vs Texas Longhorns Odds

The odds on this matchup between the Texas Longhorns and West Virginia Mountaineers will continue to change as game time draws nearer. Sportsbooks will attempt to pull even money on both sides, adjusting the odds until they accomplish just that. Depending on which side of the bet you are leaning, this can either hurt or help. It’s a risky move to wait for line movement, but it can certainly pay off. A good way to tell which way a line will move is to look at where the public money is coming in. The line will typically move in the opposite direction.
