4* Major Orange Bowl BEST BET on VA Tech +2.5
Let’s face it, both the ACC and the Big East were very weak this year, but the Big East was still the weaker of the two conference with less speed than the ACC. VA Tech is young, but it continued to improve as the season went on and it ended the regular season playing its best football, winning its last 3 games and crushing Boston College in the ACC title game. Cincy had a surprise season, but this team is not as good as its record indicates and nearly losing to Hawaii proved that. Defensively, the Hokies are the superior team, allowing only 17.5 ppg and that’s why I like them to win this one. VA Tech is 12-2 ATS off an upset win as an underdog since 1992. Beamer will preach to his boys that no one expects them to win and that will be all the motivation they need to come out victorious as the more talented side.
