Wake Forest vs. Virginia Tech Prediction

I’m on the over here. These are two of the more efficient offenses in ACC conference play and I think this is going to turn into a track meet. I have no interest in trying to split hairs to get on a side here, and I think given the offense that’s going to be on display, the over is the way to go in this one.
