ACC Clash

No. 20 Virginia Tech looks to build some momentum heading into the end of the 2009 season on Saturday when the Hokies travel to Maryland to face the Terrapins at 1PM ET from Byrd Stadium.

Bet Virginia Tech at Maryland
Virginia Tech is 6-3 on the season and 4-5 against the spread. The Hokies ended a two-game losing streak last week with a 16-3 win over East Carolina. Virginia Tech has won 14 of 15 meetings with Maryland.

The Terrapins are 2-7 on the season and 2-6-1 against the spread. Maryland has lost four straight and both wins on the season come at home.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have made Virginia Tech 18-point road favorites over Maryland on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 48.

The key to the pick in this game is the Maryland defense, which ranks last in the ACC, allowing 32.3 points per-game. With the Hokies having one of the top defenses in the conference, don’t expect the Terrapins to score many points. Look for the Hokies to be able to consistently run the ball behind the efforts of Ryan Williams. Williams should be able to score a couple of touchdowns and if Tyrod Taylor can play above his average performances, the Hokies will be able to cover.

Our suggested picks is the Hokies to cover the 18-point spread odds as well as the under. This should be a game dominated by the Hokies rushing attack, which will leave the game low scoring, but the Hokies should have enough talent to cover against a struggling Maryland football team.

Our College Football Week 11 Free Pick for this matchup is: VIRGINIA TECH -18 and UNDER 48.
