A lot depends on how much they've recovered from the flu, and how that's affected by the quick turn-around.

With WVU losing three straight, previously, and to last place ISU, before the KSU game, its strange that ESPN predictor has slowly moved this game from 60% OU about a month ago, to 50/50 now. ESPN likes us more than they should, we've lost three games, Texas AM 70% favorites, Kentucky 75%, Iowa State 80%, The only game they didn't have us favored was the TTU game, I think the KU and TCU games were slight advantages to us too. Vegas had us favored in all those games too, except the TTU game. Short rest away game too. Be great to win this one but not expecting it.

Actually it makes sense considering Oklahoma's recent performances. All the added weight on his shoulders of carrying 9 other teammates is pooping Young out. I think they are taking that into consideration.

This is a tough one and one I don’t expect us to win, but after our last 3 weeks we simply need to win here. For our psyche from a team, fan base, and seeding perspective they need to win one they weren’t supposed to. If they can pull it out tonight and beat OSU Saturday I think people forget a lot of those losses and can even take a glass half full approach by our periodical dominance in all of those losses. The confidence will be largely restored. Lose tonight, even a close one, and Saturday was but a temporary respite to our growing panic. I realize the circumstances are difficult: good oppoenent, on the road, sick, 48 hour turnaround, but this is the bed they made by playing shitty against TCU and ISU and blowing games they had no business losing against UK/KU. If they want to be a final 4 team or win this league, they win tonight.

Interesting ugly stat of the day = "The Mountaineers are 0-7 under Bob Huggins in Monday road games following a Saturday home game. They are 1-4 all-time at Lloyd Noble Center."


Las Vegas has OK as a 2.5 home favorite. I see it as a toss up game with OK having the crowd and the refs on their side.

ESPN doesn't arbitrarily pick the percentages, they use an algorithm that factors various stats and rankings. Thus it changes on a daily/weekly basis.
