Shane’s Free Pick

I really like the underdog in this game. This Virginia Tech looked good in the last game against Clemson with their defense. Duke’s offense is good, but it hasn’t been as good as in years past and that is going to allow Virginia Tech to find some success. Look for Virginia Tech to score enough to get the ob done. Back Virginia Tech against the spread.
