Bet The Virginia Tech Hokies at +11.5 Because…
Hokies quarterback Jerod Evans threw for 221 yards and four touchdowns to lead Virginia Tech to a commanding 36-13 season-opening victory over Liberty on Saturday, in head coach Justin Fuente’s debut.
Fuente took over in January for Frank Beamer, who retired after 29 years as Virginia Tech’s head coach.
"The atmosphere here is fantastic," Fuente said. "It’s what college football is all about. People at Virginia Tech take a lot of pride in the game-day atmosphere, and they should. It was incredible.”
Bet The Tennessee Volunteers at -11.5 Because…
Running back Jalen Hurd recovered quarterback Joshua Dobbs’ overtime fumble in the end zone to lift No. 9 Tennessee to a narrow 20-13 victory over Appalachian State on Thursday night.
Tennessee overcame a 10-point halftime deficit and a crucial third-and-goal from the 2-yard-line to get the win.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
I love the coaching style and offensive genius of Virginia Tech’s Justin Fuente and I just don’t see the Hokies losing to a Tennessee team that looked extremely shaky in its Week 1 opener against Appalachian State.
While Tennessee has gone 6-3 ATS over its last nine games, I believe the spread for this matchup should be closer to 3-6 points, making Virginia Tech the pick to cover the spread in a narrow loss.
