Alabama vs Virginia Tech September 5th Betting Lines:
Alabama Crimson Tide -6.5 (-115)
vs Virginia Tech Hokies +6.5 (-105)
Spread Prediction – There is good value picking the Virginia Tech Hokies to beat the 6.5 point spread here at -105 odds. Alabama is starting a first year starter, Greg McElroy, at QB – while Virginia Tech is going with their experienced junior Tyrod Taylor. This QB match up favors the Hokies in this season opener game, and as long as freshman RB Ryan Williams can do a good job in the backfield I think the Virginia Tech Hokies have a solid shot at winning this game.
Over 38 (-110)
Under 38 (-110)
Over/Under 38 Prediction – Tough call here, but I am betting on the Over 38 at -110. This is tough because both offenses are missing a key player from last year and will have new starters filling those roles. This is a really low over/under for any college game – bet the Over 38.
