This game is on ESPN 2 so it will get some action in college football betting lines at Sbgglobal.
Weak Big East
The Big East is simply not a very good football conference, yet they are going to get a BCS bowl bid. That is too bad considering none of the teams will deserve one. West Virginia looked like they were at least a team to consider but they couldn’t even beat Syracuse last week. Connecticut is even worse, as they were humiliated last week by Louisville.
West Virginia 5-2, 4-3
The Mountaineers are 5-2 straight up and 4-3 against the spread. West Virginia is not well coached though and you just can’t trust them in any situation. They are better than Connecticut but that doesn’t mean anything.
Connecticut 3-4, 3-4
The Huskies are 3-4 both straight up and against the spread this season. They are 0-2 in the Big East and last week it was ugly. They were humiliated 26-0 at Louisville last week. There is not much to like about UConn in this game other than the fact they are at home. The Huskies are much better at home than on the road so they may get a look from gamblers in this Friday night contest.
