Virginia Tech to win the ACC Coastal +235

The news coming out of Blacksburg this offseason has me cracking my team journal and taking notes almost weekly. Reports surfaced that starting quarterback Josh Jackson had academic issues that could keep him off the field.

After those issues were apparently resolved, the defense had more turnover with the dismissal of Mook Reynolds. The nickel back served a Roquan Smith-type role for the Hokies and will be missed this fall. At least the new orange uniforms are straight fire.

Despite all the off-field news, this is still a very talented and capable Hokies team that could return to the ACC championship game. The game to decide this futures bet is Nov. 17 against Miami at home.

Current game of the year numbers have Hokies +2, which correlates to no larger than +140. The ACC road schedule is kind, getting Florida State with all its changes right out of the gate. Road trips to Duke, Pitt and North Carolina make this a very manageable schedule. Take note that both Miami and Virginia come to Blacksburg on back-to-back travel to end the season, making Virginia Tech to win the Coastal +235 the play.

What else you need to know about Virginia Tech

Old Dominion was shut out 38-0 in 2017 by Virginia Tech, letting 21 second-half points go unanswered to miss covering the 35-point spread. Cautiously look to take an inflated Monarchs number this year. Virginia Tech has Old Dominion scheduled on the road Sept. 22 before a conference game.

The Monarchs are 23rd overall in returning production, meaning they will have a fresh memory of 2017 and plenty of experience. This number should open north of 21, and expected steam on the Hokies should move the line, so wait until game day to get the best Old Dominion number.
