While there’s little no debate over who’s more likely to win tonight’s ACC showdown in Blacksburg, there’s certainly some disagreement over how many points by which they should be favored.

Clemson is just north of a three-touchdown favorite on the road at Virginia Tech — a line that’s seen some movement in both directions since opening. The reasons for each direction of movement, however, have been vastly different, as our PRO Report makes clear.

College Football Sharp Pick: Clemson vs. Virginia Tech

While most bettors are rolling with the No. 3 team in the country, sharps and our experts have been taking the points with Virginia Tech. And our model suggests a pretty sizable edge on the underdog as well.

Sharp Action

As mentioned, this line has seen some movement in both directions over the course of the week. The difference, however, is that only one of those directions has been catalyzed by sharp action.

Four Sports Insights Bet Signals have been triggered on Virginia Tech, indicating four separate instances of professional action landing on the underdog. That helps explain how this number is having trouble rising despite a strong 69% majority of bets landing on Clemson.

Sharp Action edge: Virginia Tech

Model Projections

According to our college football model (compiled by Collin Wilson), Clemson’s three-touchdown edge should be more like two. In fact, he pegs the Tigers as just 14.3-point favorites.

That provides plenty of value in taking the points and earns this bet one of the highest projection-edge grades on the slate.
