South Florida vs West Virginia Pick Against the Spread

Posted by in College Football, College Football Picks on October 14th, 2010 | 8 Comments

South Florida Bulls @ West Virginia Mountaineers (-10.5)

This is a big Thursday night game that will be aired on ESPN. South Florida is coming off an ugly 13-9 loss against Syracuse last week. West Virginia covered their 26.5 point spread by beating UNLV last week 49-10. They are now

South Florida takes advantage of the generous points given to them tonight.

ranked in the AP top 25 at #25.

Let’s talk about the head-to-head match-up between these two teams though. South Florida has won three of the last four games SU and are 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings with the Mountaineers. Last year, South Florida topped them 30-19. Clearly, West Virginia is the better team this year, but in my opinion are getting way too many points tonight. I see West Virginia winning this game, but definitely in a close one. South Florida covers the spread.

The Bulls last victory against their last five games versus ranked opponents was against West Virginia last year. Coach Holtz knows that this year is different with West Virginia improving dramatically throwing the ball when they’re usually known for their running game.

Holtz as a coach is 20-4-1 ATS as a dog when facing a team with at least one loss on the season. Coach of the Mountaineers,, Stewart,  is 8-15 ATS when laying points. Vegas made a mistake and gave the Bulls too many points.

Prediction: Mountaineers 24 – Bulls 20

Pick Against the Spread: South Florida +10.5

    Vegas just sucking those point lovers right in with those 10 1/2 points.

    South Fla backers will be licking their wounds around 11:00PM Eastern tonight.

    Joey G., doing a helluva job leading more lambs to the slaughter just like he did last Sunday and on MNF.

    With my final score prediction at 24-20 I have a feeling it will be very close but go slightly under. I wouldn’t recommend betting on it though, could go either way. Just take USF.


    The Vikings were one play away from the cover Monday, Favre must have had money on the Jets. Tonight is one of my strongest plays of the year.

    Joey G, time to look for another profession.

    PS: I’m sure Favre had money on the game, nice excuse.
