Why Bet on Virginia Tech at +11.5 Because…
Virginia Tech’s offense showed balance in the win over Liberty. The Hokies rushed for 206 yards. The per rush average came out to 4.3 yards per carry. Virginia Tech QB Jerod Evans passed for 221 yards. He threw 4 touchdown passes. If VA Tech can get things going via both the pass and the run, the Hokies should be able to put points on the board against Tennessee.
Why Bet on Tennessee at -11.5 Because…
Tennessee is a much better team than what they showed versus Appalachian State. The Vols are stronger on offense then the 20 points they scored. They’re also stronger on defense than the 13 points they allowed. Tennessee was a pre-season Top 10 ranked team for a reason. The Vols may have overlooked Appalachian State due to this game versus Virginia Tech.
My College Football Week 2 ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
Who knows what happened in Tennessee’s struggle versus Appalachian State? The Mountaineers did bring an experienced squad, especially an experienced defensive unit, into their battle with the Volunteers.
Tennessee’s defense played well. The offense played okay. The offense faced a slightly tougher, more experienced, defense against Appalachian State, whose program is much closer to a Big 5 Conference team’s program than many want to believe, than what it will face versus Virginia Tech on Saturday.
The trends point to a Tennessee cover. The Volunteers are 7 and 3 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS loss. They are 4 and 0 ATS in their last 4 neutral site games. They are 4 and 0 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
I think that the Vols’ offense and defense come to play on Saturday. Bet on Tennessee to cover the 11.5-point college football week 2 spread.
