College football betting line makers installed Virginia Tech as 3.5-point favorites against the NCAA football odds when the board opened. Nebraska has gotten off to a fine start this college football betting season as they are 2-0 both straight up and against the NCAA football odds.
Last week the Cornhuskers scored a 38-9 home win over Arkansas State as 21-point chalks. If you want to bet on the Hokies, know that they are 1-1 both straight up and against the college football betting board. Last week the Hokies scored a 52-10 blowout win over Marshall as they easily covered the college football betting number as 19.5-point home chalks.
Nebraska boasts a vastly improved offense that is well balanced. Their defense is also improved under head coach Bo Pelini, who is a former defensive coordinator and known for his toughness. Virginia Tech is the defending ACC champion and actually was considered to be a year early in winning that title.
The Hokies are expected to be even better this college football betting season. Last year these two teams met at Nebraska and the Hokies scored a 35-30 win as 7-point college football betting dogs. Nebraska has covered the college football betting line in just 4 out of their last 15 games when coming off a straight up win.
The Huskers have not shown the ability to sustain college football betting momentum after blowout wins as they have gotten the cash in just 19 out of their last 63 games when coming off a straight up win by a margin of more than 20 points.
Virginia Tech has gotten the cash in 5 straight games versus teams with winning straight up records and is 14-4 against the spread when coming off a straight up win by a margin of more than 20 points.
While Nebraska is improving and is a Big 12 north division contender the Hokies will be a tough crew to face at home with their experience as defending ACC champions and with a tough opening day loss to Alabama on their record already.
