Being that I have the Hurricanes winning outright, MIAMI +2.5 (-105) is the pick here if you’d like the insurance. While Virginia Tech has a 12-3 record at home, Miami is 8-2 ATS on the road this season.
Miami is also 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games overall and 21-5 ATS in its last 26 road games.
OVER 154.5 (-105) is an enticing bet with how well these teams produce on the offensive end. Miami and Virginia Tech average a combined 154.4 points per game and the Over has hit in 6 straight meetings between the programs.
The Hurricanes are 6-0 to the Over in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record and the Hokies are 5-0 to the Over in their last 5 home games.
