Hokies drop another one
Virginia Tech is coming off a bad 45-10 loss at home to Duke last weekend. The Hokies are struggling in conference play, as they are 0-2 thus far with a 2-2 overall record. The Hokies are 0-4 against the spread and 2-2 with the over/under total.
Offense hasn’t been a strength for Tech this year, as the Hokies are averaging 363.5 yards per game while scoring just 23.2 per contest. Defensively, the Hokies are allowing 28.5 points and 352.5 yards per outing. Ryan Willis is leading the team with 851 passing yards and eight touchdowns, but he also has five interceptions. Deshawn McClease is the leading rusher with 222 yards while Tayvion Robinson has 18 receptions with 190 yards.
Miami had a bye last weekend and the Hurricanes had a 17-12 win over Central Michigan at home two weeks ago. The Canes are 2-2 on the season, 0-1 in the ACC, 2-2 against the spread and 2-2 with the over/under total.
The Miami defense has been really strong this year, as the Hurricanes are giving up just 16 points and 270 yards per game. Both of which rank in the top 20 in the nation. Offensively, Miami is averaging 31.2 points and 422.2 yards per game. Jarren Williams has thrown for 1,027 yards and seven touchdowns this year without an interception. Tight end Brevin Jordan is his leading target with 16 catches for 233 yards. DeeJay Dallas leads the ground attack with 343 yards and five touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
The Hokies have hit the over in five of their last seven games, but have hit the under in seven of their last eight trips to Miami.
The Hurricanes have hit the under in nine of their last 11 games overall and in six of their last seven ACC games.
These two have hit the under in seven of their last 10 meetings and it certainly seems like this should be another low-scoring game on Saturday. Tech still has a good defense and its offense is a mess. Miami can say the same. It had just 17 points at home against CMU. However, the Canes have had two weeks to prepare and two weeks is a long time with a young and developing quarterback. I would expect the Miami offense to have a few new wrinkles. Duke was able to put up 45 on the Hokies last week, so I think there is potential for the Canes to break a few big plays on offense. With the total being so low, you only need a few breakout plays for the over to hit.
