College football betting on Saturday features perhaps the best matchup of the day in Blacksburg, Virginia as #11 Virginia Tech hosts #9 Miami of Florida.
The Hokies are actually bet on college football underdogs at the sportsbook. College football betting rarely has the Hokies as an underdog at home. Virginia Tech has been a Top 25 team for a long while and they are very tough to beat at home. Miami though is getting a lot of early headlines this college football betting season.
They have been very impressive in bet on college football wins over Georgia Tech and Florida State. Virginia Tech and Miami of Florida met seven straight times when they were both ranked from 1999-2005. Last year neither team was ranked when they matched up in college football betting.
Miami has looked superb this college football betting season and behind quarterback Jacory Harris has moved into the Top 10 for the first time since 2005. Harris has looked like the best quarterback in the country and has injected himself into the Heisman Trophy race. The Hurricanes are averaging 35.5 points per game as college football betting stats show. They lead the ACC with 465 yards of total offense per game as college football betting number had it.
The Hurricanes should get tested in this bet on college football matchup by a Virginia Tech defense that is normally one of the best in the country. The problem for the Hokies is finding an offense. They slipped by Nebraska last week as quarterback Tyrod Taylor hit a game winning TD with seconds remaining. "This is one of those games that could turn things around if you build on it and learn from it," coach Frank Beamer said, "We need to learn from it – not only the great plays at the end, but all those things in between that we need to get better at. When you can win one like that and improve from it, that’s important to your season."
Miami has been solid in September and they have been good on the road of late in college football betting. The Hurricanes are 4-1 in college football betting in their last 5 games in September. The Hurricanes are 7-2 vs. the sports book number in their last 9 road games. Virginia Tech has been a solid underdog in college football betting at the sportsbook. They are 13-5 versus the bet on college football number in their last 18 games as a college football betting underdog.
