Virginia Tech is 5-13 ATS in their last 18 road games. The over is 4-1 in Virginia Tech’s last 5 road games against a team with a winning home record. Virginia is 2-10 ATS in their last 12 home games and 7-15 ATS in their last 22 games. The over is 3-1-1 in Virginia’s last 5 games. The home team is 11-5 ATS in these two teams last 16 meetings.
This should be a very close game between two evenly matched teams. Virginia Tech has struggled in their last few games and is on the road here. Virginia has actually improved offensively compared to past years and the over has been hitting at a nice rate lately. I think the point total is way too low here, give me the over.
