The Colonels are 18-7 ATS in their last 25 road games and 35-15-2 ATS in their last 52 games overall.

The under is 6-2 in Mountaineers last 8 Friday games.

The Eastern Kentucky Colonels are off to a great start, but they haven’t exactly played anybody up to this point, and they don’t see this style of defense often. The West Virginia Mountaineers have had a rough schedule through five games, and they’ve more than held their own. WVU is only going to improve. I’ll lay the chalk with the home team.
