2021 West Virginia Mountaineers Football Betting Predictions

2021 West Virginia Mountaineers Betting Odds, Predictions, Preview

After a solid 6-4 season the Mountaineers will look to expand on that momentum and hopefully compete in the Big 12 this year. While this is not a high-flying dual-threat offensive team of the past they will look to slow games down and allow their defense to keep them in it. Considering the fact that they held 7 of their 11 opponents last season to below 22 points, an uptick in offensive production would greatly elevate the Mountaineers.

My preseason best bet is West Virginia under 6.5 wins. This is one of the toughest teams I’ve had to break down, while they do have some upside an incredibly tough schedule tilts the scales towards the under. If you’re a believer in quarterback Jarrett Doege then maybe they do improve on offense I’m just not sold yet.

Preseason Best Bet: Under 6.5 Wins

West Virginia Odds to win 2021 Big 12 Championship

Yes +2200

These odds don’t feel quite high enough, yes they did have an impressive season last year but their schedule is gonna be really tough. Even if the Mountaineers surpass their win total I find it really hard to believe the knock-off enough top-end talent to make it to the Big 12 championship. At +2200 this is a hard pass for me.

2021 Big 12 Conference Betting Odds

West Virginia Odds to Win 2021-22 College Football Playoff

Yes +25000

I think West Virginia’s goal this season is going to be building on last year’s success and aiming for a solid bowl game win. A national championship just seems too far out of reach, even if they do make it out of the Big 12 I’m not confident they have the offensive firepower to knock off any big-name ranked teams. Expecting a solid season out of the Mountaineers just not willing to bet them at this number.

West Virginia 2021 Heisman Contenders & Odds

Leddie Brown +8000

Jarrett Doege +10000

After finishing 14th nationally last season with 1,010 rushing yards and nine touchdowns Brown proved he’s one of the most talented running backs in the nation. Considering he did all that in just 10 games it’s hard to imagine he doesn’t fill up the boxscore this season. This all comes down to the odds of a running back winning the Heisman, while we all see the talent of Brown I’m not sure he gets the national media attention necessary to have a real shot at winning this.

While Doege has shown some promise I’m not interested in him despite the humongous odds. He’s a classic game manager that will have his team in a position to wins games I just don’t think he has the individual talent necessary to put himself in the conversation with some of the most talented athletes in the league.
