LINE: Virginia Tech -28.5, o/u: 55.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
Virginia Tech is going to really, really, really care.
It’s coming off a loss in the ACC opener against Boston College, it needs a win after going 4-8 in its last 12 games, and …
It’s an angry, focused team after losing to Old Dominion 49-35 last year.
The Hokies put up 28 on the road last week against Boston College, and it would’ve been a whole lot more if they didn’t turn it over five times. Considering they need a cathartic moment with the offense blowing up, and with the way the passing game should click for well over 300 yards, Tech should be able to push for close to 50 all on its own.
There’s a slight concern that Old Dominion gets totally shut down cold.
It was ugly in the 24-21 win over Norfolk State, and it doesn’t have the type of high-powered offense that should be able to put up anywhere near the numbers it did last year.
And if it does … great. You’re going with the over here, anyway, because Virginia Tech is about to bring the thump.
