Game Analysis

My free play is on West Va at 5:30 ET.

Neal Brown spent four years as the head coach at Troy. His first season saw his team go 4-8 but the next three seasons the Trojans went 31-8 overall, including winning all THREE bowl appearances. He was announced as the 35th head football coach for on January 5, 2019 and after a 5-7 first season, the Mountaineers are off to a 3-1 start in 2020. Matt Wells had a six-year run at Utah St, going 44-34 overall but he did lead the Aggies to a bowl berth in FIVE of those six seasons. He didn't coach the Aggies in the 2018 New Mexico Bowl, as he was hired by Texas Tech as head football coach on November 29, 2018. Just like Brown, Wells' first season was unsuccessful (4-8) but unlike Brown here in 2020, the Red Raiders are just 1-3 to open the current season.

The visiting Mountaineers have been a surprise this season because of their defense, which allows just 18.8 PPG and is the national leader in total defense (240.3 YPG). West Virginia has allowed just 2.7 yards per rushing attempt and leads the BIG 12 with six interceptions and 16 sacks. In a 38-17 victory against Kansas last Saturday, the Mountaineers logged 11 tackles for loss, had five sacks and two INTs while allowing only 157 total yards and seven first downs. QB Doege has been solid, completing 64.2% for 1,042 yards with eight TDs and three INTs. RB Brown has 515 yards (6.4 YPC) and five TDs plus Doege has a trio of WR targets. Wight has 19 catches, James 18 and Wheaton 13, averaging 15.2 YPC with three TDs.

Texas Tech's junior QB Henry Colombi will make his first start since his senior year of high school in this game. Colombi began his career at Utah State under the current Texas Tech coaching staff and backed up current Green Bay Packers rookie Jordan Love for two seasons. He transferred to the Red Raiders in the offseason and came on in relief of starter Alan Bowman the past two games, completing 74.1% while throwing for 359 yards, three TDS and just one INT. More importantly, he seemed to help Texas Tech operate more smoothly. "We had just played good or OK at quarterback," Red Raiders coach Matt Wells said Monday. "I felt that the change to Henry gives us a better opportunity to, at this time, play better on offense. Thompson is a solid RB (282 yards / 5.0 YPC / 4 TDs) and Colombi has five WRs with 10-plus catches. Ezukanma and Carter each have 21 receptions, with a combined seven TD catches. However, the Texas Tech defense is giving up 37.8 PPG, allowing 30-plus points in ALL games. That includes allowing 42 PPG on 465 YPG in opening 0-3 in the Big 12.

West Va had won FIVE straight in the series before losing 38-17 last season, despite running up 549 total yards. That's what happens when a team loses the TO battle (-4). Road team wins AND covers in this one.

Good luck...Larry

YESTERDAY'S PLAYS

SERVICE BIO

Age: 65 (turns 66 in November).

Years in handicapping: Larry entered his 36th year as a professional handicapper in August of 2019.

Achievements in handicapping: 1985 Castaway’s Pro Football Challenge Champion, then the most prestigious handicapping contest in Las Vegas; 1999 Stardust Invitational semi-finalist.

A member of the original cast of Proline (began in 1985), the nation’s longest running pre-game handicapping show on the USA-TV network (also hosted Sports Desk on the same network from 1996-98). In then joined the panel of The Winning Edge in the early 2000s. Although well-known on TV for his expert game analysis and no-nonsense handicapping style, Larry may be best known for his radio work. He hosted his own syndicated call-in radio show, Sports Central. It aired live from Bally's Casino in Las Vegas in the early to mid-90s and at one time was heard in more than 100 markets.

Systems used for handicapping a game: Fundamental and statistical analysis. "I'm not typically a trend and system kind of guy," Ness says. "I look at team strengths and weaknesses and compare them. It’s an all-encompassing thing and over 35-plus years, you get good at it."

Star Ratings: 9 and 10*s are considered "Best Bets." All other plays are rated between 6 and 8*s, depending on strength and/or price.

Release Times: Larry releases "daily sports" (MLB, NBA, NCAAB and NHL) on the day of the game. His full card is almost always available by 10:00 ET (save Late-Breaking games). In the FB season, Larry begins releasing plays as early as Tuesday. His full CFB card is typically complete by Thursday (on Friday, at the latest) and his full NFL card will be mostly complete by Friday (definitely by Saturday at 3:00 ET). 36-Club Play: It represents Larry's 36 years in the business and gets his highest star rating (10*s). Expect no more than one of these plays per month, per sport during the regular season. LEGEND Play: Larry's often been referred to as a Las Vegas legend and he's 'borrowed' the title for his other "signature play.". Larry's LEGEND Plays were previously available to only a select group of private clients but they are now available to all, via the internet. Like his 36-Club plays, expect no more than one play per month, per sport (rated 10*s). Game of the Month and Game of the Year Plays: Always rated 10*s. Las Vegas Insider: Throughout his 36 years "in the business," Larry has become known as "the ultimate Las Vegas insider." The contacts he's developed over more than three decades (on both sides of the 'counter'), are arguably "unmatched!" He confers daily with 'his 'friends' and when "all the stars align on the same game," Larry releases an exclusive Las Vegas Insider (rated between 7 and 10*s). Oddsmaker's Error Plays: Larry uses this term with "great respect" (and not very often), as he counts among his very closest friends many of Las Vegas' most famous and respected Sport Book directors (past and present). However, when Larry feels "the line is significantly off," he'll release one of these "not to be missed" plays (rated 9 or 10*s). Situational Stunners: Larry's a fundamental handicapper at heart but he does pay attention to team and situational trends (especially in MLB). When his fundamental handicapping and a strong trend or situation match up, he releases a Situational Stunner. He began releasing these plays in MLB '09 and he's expanded them since,to all sports (rated from 7-10*s, based on strength and/or price for moneyline sports). PERFECT STORM: Larry just added these plays the last few years and his accompanying expert analysis makes these popular plays self-explanatory (typically rated 9 or 10*s but moneyline sports may be rated 7 or 8*s due to price). Weekly and Weekend Wipeout Winners: Larry added this self-explanatory moniker just a few years ago. They've become immensely popular and why not? Who wouldn't want a game that has "blowout written all over it," supported by Larry's expert analysis (rated between 7 and 10*s, depending on strength and price). Superstar Triple Play: Over the years, many of Larry's regular clients have clamored for more three-game reports. You asked for it and Larry's responded. Back in the late 1980s and into the mid 1990s, 900-numbers became "the rage." While a panel member of Proline (see above), Larry created the Superstar Triple Play. One call got you three Superstar Triple Plays (in a particular sport). For almost a decade, anywhere from 1,500 to 3,500 callers responded each weekend, when Larry offered his famous "Superstar Triple Play" pitch on Proline. Starting in 2009, Larry began going "Back to the Future!" Look for 3-game reports this FB season on Saturday (college) and Sunday (NFL). Get three plays on a single report from Larry (many will be TV games), the originator of the "Superstar Triple Play!". Late-Breaking Plays: Larry will always go back and take a "second look" at each day's card, after posting all his games. When he finds something he missed the first time around, he'll release a Late-Breaking Play. These plays are more prevalent in sports like baseball and basketball than football (typically rated at 8 or 9*s).

Quote: "No one works any harder and my work-product speaks for itself," Ness says. "I have a no-nonsense style and my logic is easy to follow. Anyone buying my plays will know exactly what I was thinking when I made the selection. After 34 years, the Larry Ness brand is instantly recognizable and my analysis ranks with the best in the industry."
