Virginia Tech vs Pitt Betting Prediction 

Virginia Tech sure opened up my eyes in the last game and they are going to continue that success here. Virginia Tech’s defense was quite impressive in the last game and they are going to step up in this game. Virginia Tech also scored 75 points in the last game and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Pitt won’t be keeping up here, and Virginia Tech will get the job done here.
