Shane’s free choice
These are both teams that can really score and there is no defense leaked by either team. TCU averages 77.5 points while West Virginia averages 77.1 points per game. Look for both teams to increase the score and I wouldn’t be shocked if both teams ended up over 80 points. Get over that.
