NCAA football betting handicappers have their choice of two 4-1 straight up college football betting commodities as Virginia Tech hosts Boston College. Virginia Tech opened as a 13.5-point NCAA football betting favorite for this one.
Boston College has a college football betting record of 4-1 straight up and 3-1 against the NCAA football betting spread. Last week the Eagles scored a dramatic 28-21 home win over Florida State as 3.5-point dogs to improve their ACC record to 2-1. Boston College’s NCAA football betting strength is their defense as it is ranked 20th in the nation for points allowed. BC is a solid NCAA football betting rushing team led by Montel Harris, who has 453 yards and 5 touchdowns this year. Harris’ 42 yard TD run with 4:07 remaining was the difference last week. Quarterback David Shinskie is off to a fine start as he has hit on 62% of his passes with a 7/2 touchdown to interception ratio.
The Virginia Tech Hokies have a NCAA football betting record of 4-1 straight up but just 2-3 against the college football betting board. The Hokies won at Duke last week 34-26 but failed to cover as 17-point NCAA football betting chalks. The Hokies are 2-0 straight up so far in conference NCAA football betting action and are the defending ACC champions. As is always the case Virginia Tech’s NCAA football betting strength is their special teams and all around balance. Ryan Williams is off to a fine start for the 2009 NCAA football betting season with 575 yards rushing and 8 touchdowns with an average of 8.3 yards per carry.
BC has struggled on the road recently with just 2 payouts in their last 7 games away from home. They have had good success against the Hokies, however, with a mark of 8-3 against the board in the last 11 matchups including a 5-2 mark against the spread at Virginia Tech.
