It’s been made pretty clear how bettors feel about this matchup.
As one of the more heavily-bet Saturday games, this one has attracted public bettors to the road favorite in droves. Seventy-nine percent of bets, in fact, have hit No. 12 West Virginia, which isn’t too surprising given the current outlook of the Big 12.
Aside from the little number next to their name, the Mountaineers have gone 3-1 in conference play and 14-2 overall, good for the second-place spot in the conference. Anchoring the standings at 0-4 in conference and 7-9 overall is Kansas State.
