Week 9 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a Big 12 showdown between the No. 7 TCU Horned Frogs and West Virginia Mountaineers. TCU managed to keep its flawless record intact last week thanks to a 38-28 victory against then-No. 17 Kansas State.
On the other hand, West Virginia a 48-10 blowout loss to Texas Tech marked the program's second loss in its last three outings. With the Mountaineers now falling to 1-3 against the Big 12 this season, it's clear that Neal Brown's team will need a huge effort to upset TCU this weekend.

TCU vs West Virginia Prediction & Pick
West Virginia has owned TCU in recent history, winning each of the last four games in this Big 12 rivalry. However, this isn't the same Horned Frogs from past years. TCU is now viewed as a top-10 program in the nation and rightfully so, having beaten ranked teams in each of its last four victories.
The passing game has been one of West Virginia's biggest weaknesses this season, leaving no doubt that TCU will exploit that area. The Horned Frogs' average of 291.3 passing yards over their last three games ranks 27th-best in the NCAAF. Meanwhile, the Mountaineers' 305.3 passing yards against per contest is the nation's 125th-worst average.
Including how TCU has a top-10 overall offense this year while West Virginia has given up 38-plus points in three straight games, it's easy to back the Horned Frogs to continue their success.
Final Score Prediction: TCU: 42 | West Virginia: 24

TCU has been rock solid against the spread this season, going 5-1-1 ATS so far. After defeating teams like Kansas, Oklahoma State and Kansas State lately, I just don't see the Horned Frogs having much of an issue with the Mountaineers.
Don't overthink his one: TCU should win this one decisively, covering the 7-point spread in the process.
Bet: TCU -7 (-115)
