Virginia Tech is 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games overall. The Hokies are 4-0 against the spread in their last 4 games after allowing less than 275 total yards in their previous game. East Carolina is 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 home games. East Carolina is also 2-10 in their last 12 games overall.
I cant see East Carolina making this a close game against a good defensive team in Virginia Tech. I think Virginia Tech will be able to dominate the game on the ground and make enough stops to cover the spread. Take VIrginia Tech to cover the spread.
