Virginia Tech +150 2* play

I'll take the Hokies here, as Georgia Tech has beaten 1 FBS team. Although I think both teams are inconsistent and better than their record shows the Hokies are healthier at this point of the season. This should be a fun back and forth game, and in the end we definitely will have a shot to cash. Virginia Tech is as healthy as ever, and gets extra time to prepare for the triple option which has not been as good this season averaging just 4.5 yards per carry in conference play compared to over 5.5 each of the last 3years. Bud Foster's group should be ready although I'm concerned about the youth in their secondary if they have to come up and make plays. 6 of the last 7 meetings have been decided by a posession so if you wanted to take the 3 or 3.5 points I wouldn't blame you. 3.5 is not available to me and +150 are great odds on this number.

Frank Beamer announced his retirement and I think his players will play inspired football still trying to get to a bowl game. The offense is better than it has been in years past and definitely more balanced with Michael Brewer in there. He's not turning the ball over which is the key here because Georgia Tech will force some turnovers as their corners definitely take some chances going for the ball. That should leave the door open for some double moves, and Virginia Tech can also run the ball with the emergence of Travon McMillian who has 4 games in a row with 96 yards rushing or more and is averaging 5.5 yards per carry. Georgia Tech ranks 92nd in adjusted rush defense, 51st vs. the pass, 84th in success rate. Virginia Tech ranks 31st in adjusted run defense and 8th in success rate. VA Tech has only allowed 1 team to run over 200 yards this season that was Ohio State in game 1 which really skewed their defensive stats as Ohio State averaged nearly 10 yards per carry. This unit has gotten better and is only allowing 3.52 yards per carry in conference play.
