According to FanDuel, the Mountaineers have officially opened as a -22.5 point favorite over the Kansas Jayhawks this Saturday.

The Jayhawks (0-3, 0-1 in Big 12) are still uncertain if Head Coach Les Miles will be able to make the trip due to his positive COVID-19 test. If he is unable to make the trip, we should expect this line to increase by kickoff.

West Virginia (2-1, 1-1 in Big 12) is coming off of a bye week, but was able to beat Baylor, 27-21, in double overtime a week prior. Leddie Brown and Alec Sinkfield will be expected to have a big day against what is the worst rush defense in the conference.

The Mountaineers and Jayhawks kickoff at noon. The game is being broadcasted on FS1.
