Billy Napier might regret not taking one of the many Power 5 jobs that was offered to him last season (unless he replaces Ed Orgeron at LSU??). The Cajuns are 1-4 ATS this year, and the Levi Lewis-led offense isn’t striking fear into opponents as the 2020 version did. They’re averaging 395 yards per game while conceding 407, and that’s against a schedule which has been pretty soft.
The Mountaineers seem to be playing above their heads so far, and have impressed with 116.6 yards per game more on offense than they concede on defense. We’ll take the road team on the weeknight.
