College football gambling handicappers have been disappointed in both teams, who were expected to contend for the ACC title with the NCAA odds this season. The North Carolina Tar Heels have a college football gambling record of 4-3 straight up and 2-4 with the NCAA odds.
North Carolina will be in their second consecutive Thursday Night college football gambling matchup with this one. Last week the Tar Heels suffered what could be a devastating college football gambling loss to Florida State 27-30 as they blew a 24-6 lead and lost the game late in the 4th quarter.
The Tar Heels vow that they will not let that blown game ruin what is left of the college football gambling season. “We looked at this game (the loss to Florida State) as though it could have been the turning point of our season”, said senior defensive end EJ Wilson.
“But we lost, and we’re not going to let this ruin our season. It’s one loss. We’re going to look at the tape and try to learn from it. We’re just going to move on and just learn from the game”.
The Virginia Tech Hokies are also coming off a tough college football gambling loss on October 17 at Georgia Tech 23-28 as 3.5-point chalks with the NCAA odds. Tech has been off since that game and now has a college football gambling record of 5-2 straight up and 3-4 against the spread.
Tech was the defending ACC champion and consensus pick with the college football gambling community to repeat. While it’s still possible for them to win the ACC they will need college football gambling help and they cannot afford another slip up. “Now is the time to come back and let’s go get the next one”, said coach Frank Beamer.
“There’s a lot of football to be played”. North Carolina has beaten the college football gambling board in just 1 out of their last 5 road games and has gone under the total in 4 out of their last 5 on the road.
In this head to head series the two teams have gone under the total in 4 out of their last 5 meetings. Virginia Tech has covered 3 out of the last 4 meetings in this series.
