Bet Boston College at Virginia Tech

The Hokies have already played three ranked opponents this season on their way to a 4-1 start, and now face an Eagles team that has won back-to-back games over Wake Forest and Florida State. Virginia Tech is coming off a 34-26 win at Duke, where the Hokies looked flat a week after dominating Miami, 31-7. On the year, Tyrod Taylor has managed games well for the Hokies, throwing for 869 yards with six touchdowns. Ryan Williams has been the horse for the Hokies, rushing for 575 yards and eight touchdowns in five games. The 575 yards ranks sixth in the country, while the eight rushing touchdowns ranks fourth.

The Eagles are off to a 4-1 start under first-year coach Frank Spaziani, but all four wins have come at home with the lone loss taking place at Clemson. Boston College is led by its defense, which is second in the ACC in points allowed per-game at 15.4. The Eagles are also second in the conference in rushing defense, allowing just 505 yards through five games. Dave Shinskie has emerged as the quarterback for the Eagles, throwing for 624 yards with a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 7-2. Montel Harris has 449 yards rushing with five touchdowns for the Eagles. The last meeting at Lane Stadium saw the Eagles upset the Hokies 14-10 behind two late touchdown drives by then-quarterback Matt Ryan.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made Virginia Tech 13.5-point home favorites over Boston College on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 44.5.
