The Hokies are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win. The Cougars are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Hokies last 7 overall. The over is 9-3 in Cougars last 12 overall.

Give the Charleston Cougars credit for this start, but they’ve been rough defensively, and now they’re going up against a juggernaut offensive team in Virginia Tech. The Virginia Tech Hokies are absolutely loaded offensively, and they’re scary good to teams that either can’t defend or don’t have the horses to keep up. I’m not stepping in front of Virginia Tech. I’ll lay the chalk.
