The West Virginia Mountaineers (7-5, 5-7 ATS) and Syracuse Orange (7-5, 6-5-1 ATS) meet in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx on Saturday (3:15 p.m. ET, ESPN).
Line movement: West Virginia opened as a 4-point favorite, and Syracuse money has bet it down to 3.5 as of Friday morning. The total opened 74 at most books, attracting UNDER money that’s pushed it down to 74.
The Mountaineers were on cruise control following an impressive 5-0 start to the season, ascending to No. 5 in the country. Smith was the leading contender for the Heisman Trophy.
The Orange are led by quarterback Ryan Nassib, who threw for over 3,600 yards and 24 touchdowns. Jerome Smith rushed for more than 1,000 yards on only 198 carries. Nassib's big target is Alec Lemon, who grabbed 70 passes for 1,063 yards and seven touchdowns.
Motivation would seem to be the biggest concern for West Virginia after the great start to the season and ending up in this lower-tier bowl.
Syracuse, on the other hand, is happy to be here, as the program continues to return to a level of respectability.
