Two teams from the ACC will be facing off when the Virginia Tech Hokies visit the Miami-FL Hurricanes.
Virginia Tech is coming off of a win and Miami-FL is coming off of a loss.
Miami opened up as a 6.5 point favorite and that number is now up to 7.5. I have seen the total go from 54 to 56.5.
Virginia Tech Hokies
Virginia Tech has not been a very consistent team this year. They can be good at times, but they also really struggle at other times.
The Hokies took care of the Duke Blue Devils last week by a score of 48-17. They did just what they had to do against a very bad team in Duke.
Braxton Burmeister was 9/15 for 215 yards with 3 touchdown passes and 1 pick. I feel that he can have a good day when he goes against this defense in Miami.
Raheem Blackshear was the leading rusher against Duke with 12 carries for 117 yards. The leading receiver was Tayvion Robinson, who had 4 receptions for 78 yards.
The defense has been up-and-down this year. Sure, they did a good job against the Blue Devils, but I do not consider them a real test. This week, they will be tested by a Hurricanes team that can really spread the football.
Unless proven otherwise, all Miami-Fl has right about now is name recognition. They are simply not the team they used to be and it is evident in the way they play.
The Hurricanes dropped to the Florida State Seminoles last week by a score of 31-28. This was a game they could have won, but big surprise, they could not execute down the stretch.
Against the Noles, Tyler Van Dyke was 25/47 for 316 yards with 4 touchdown passes and 2 picks. He will look to cut down on those turnovers when he goes against the Hokies.
The running game was not able to get going at all last week. Given how many times Van Dyke was asked to throw the ball, it was all about the passing game. Charleston Rambo had 6 receptions for 95 yards on the afternoon. The Van Dyke to Rambo connection has been a thing of beauty this year.
Their defense continues to not play at a high level. I remember hearing before the season started that Manny Diaz was building a “solid defensive culture” in Miami. Really? Give me a freaking break.

Free Week 12 NCAA Football Pick
This game may not feature two of the best teams in the ACC, but I still feel it can be a very good and entertaining game.
My pick is VA Tech at +7.5 here.
4* Free Week 12 NCAA Betting Pick:
If you could not tell from what I wrote above, I am not very high on this Miami-FL team. I think they are a vastly overrated program at the moment.
I am not surprised that the Hurricanes are laying points, but 7.5 is too high for me. I do not feel they are more than a touchdown better than the Hokies.
Miami has not been a great team against the spread and I look for that trend to continue. I feel that Virginia Tech can keep things close and it would not shock me if they won the game.
Give me the Hokies getting 7 and the hook here.
