This spread is odd, as Virginia Tech seems like it should be more than a 2.5-point favorite. Clemson is struggling, while the Hokies have been quite competitive for the last few weeks. They have won their last three at home, though the games have been close. The Tigers lost by six at Miami and lost by 48 at Florida State. Usually when the spread looks odd, you are supposed to go with the odd number, but I am sticking with my gut and taking the Hokies at home minus the points.
