Ouch. The opening line for Saturday’s VT @ uva game (3 pm) is the Hokies +18. So a bet on the hoos is a bet on a Reverse Bear Fight. Tech hasn’t been very good against the spread of late, going just 1-6 in their last 7 games with spreads (their lone cover was the loss at notre dame). But believe it or not, I’m actually picking the Hokies to cover. Not to win, not to even lose by single digits, but to cover. That’s a lot of points for uva to pick up and they are due for a letdown (which sadly a 10-17 point win would be).
