NCAA Football Betting: VT Hokies vs. NC Tar Heels

This Saturday, the ACC Coastal will go a long way to being decided when the Hokies (2-1 SU, 0-2 ATS) march into Chapel Hill to square off against the Tar Heels (2-0 SU, 1-0 ATS).

The Hokies are coming off of a 20-17 nail biting win over Georgia Tech last week that saw them fail to cover the football betting line as the Hokies closed as 6.5-point favorites. The Tar Heels are off to their first 2-0 start in six years and last Thursday night soundly thumped Rutgers 44-12 on the road as 5.5-point underdogs.

The Hokies defense came up huge in their win against Georgia Tech forcing sophomore QB Josh Nesbitt into three turnovers, while the offense once again sputtered trying to find any semblance of rhythm.

Plans to redshirt QB Tyrod Taylor were officially nixed after two subpar performances from senior QB Sean Glennon, but Taylor wasn’t very effective in his first start of the season only accumulating 122 total yards. Once again freshman RB Darren Evans was the only bright spot for the offense, rushing for 94 yards on 19 carries with one touchdown.

With the offense only averaging 22 PPG through the first three games, it is no surprise to NCAA football betting fans that the Hokies have yet to cover a spread this season against the NCAA line. Optimism is high in North Carolina for the Tar Heels to make only their third bowl appearance this decade.

This past week in Piscataway, the Tar Heel defense stepped to the plate and picked off Rutgers quarterbacks four times in the game. Sophomore QB TJ Yates was very impressive in the team’s 32 point victory completing 14-of-22 passes for 221 yards and three touchdowns.

Since VTECH joined the ACC, this will be the first time that a game between these two schools offers college football betting followers eying the NCAA odds a chance to back the Hokies as road underdogs. Currently, the NCAA wagering odds find the Tar Heels sitting as two-point home favorites in this game.
