College Football Betting: Cincinnati Bearcats vs. VT Hokies

College football betting on the Orange Bowl will start with college football odds of Cincinnati as a chalk of around 2.5 points and a total of 41.5.

College football betting enthusiasts recall the days not too long ago when Cincinnati was a laughingstock that was never considered a threat to make it to the BCS college football odds board.  Head coach Brian Kelly has done a remarkable job in just two seasons to put the Bearcats into elite college football betting status.

Cincinnati had an overall college football betting record of 11-2 straight up and 6-6 against the college football odds.  The Bearcats lost some of their college football betting value down the stretch as they failed to cover their final two games despite winning them both straight up.

Cincinnati was 4-3 against the college football odds as a favorite this year.  The Bearcats biggest asset against the FedEx Orange Bowl odds would be their defense, which was in the upper quarter of the national rankings.  Quarterback Tony Pike is another college football betting asset as he had a 141 rating and 18/7 TD/INT ratio.

Marshwan Gilyard gives the Bearcats a nice advantage against the FedEx Orange Bowl odds as he caught 74 passes for 1118 yards and 10 TD’s.  Dominick Goodman gives Cincy a nice 1-2 college football betting punch on the receiving corps as he finished with 78 catches, 977 yards, and 7 TD’s.

Virginia Tech enters FedEx Orange Bowl betting action coming off a win in the ACC championship game as they beat Boston College 30-12 as 1 point dogs.  The Hokies college football betting strength is their 7th ranked defense and their traditionally strong special teams.

Their 107th ranked offense, on the other hand, is a FedEx Orange Bowl betting liability.  As you would expect the Hokies were a college football betting “under” team as 7 of their 12 games stayed beneath the total.  Virginia Tech was just 5-7 against the college football betting board this season.

Tech was a dangerous college football betting dog, however, as they were 4-2 against the spread when getting points.
