Pick via Gambling Analyst Sam Panayotovich:
Expect backup quarterback Will Howard to start for K-State.
Multiple Las Vegas oddsmakers told me there’s a minimal gap between Howard and a banged-up Adrian Martinez, so the line probably won’t budge if Martinez gets ruled out as expected. And honestly, after watching Howard light up Baylor for 31 points last week, it’s clear that he’s the better option.
The big concern for West Virginia at this stage in the season is motivation. Armed with a 4-6 record, the Mountaineers are hanging by a thread for bowl eligibility and if they go down by a couple scores early, they might as well pull the pin. Don’t be surprised if K-State’s running attack has a big second half led by Deuce Vaughn.
Lay the points with the Wildcats.
