Virginia Tech (-9.5) VS. EAST CAROLINA: Virginia Tech has been one of the most consistently solid football teams in the nation the last five plus years and that should continue again this year as they will beat up on a weak ACC. First up is an East Carolina team that actually was decent last year. The Pirates are very good on both lines but losing RB Chris Johnson will hurt the offense tremendously. Tech has their own offensive questions marks with QB’s Sean Glennon and Tyrod Taylor vying to be the number one passer. They also return only four starters on defense but this team always churns out top units on that side of the field and should do so again. This has the makings of a very sloppy game as both teams try to find some rhythm on offense. Eastสมัคร ufabet บนมือถือ Carolina is a very good underdog under coach Skip Holtz as they are 17-6 ATS in that predicament. The final score should be right around that number as we figure on a 27-17 score so our advice is to stay clear. THE PICK: PASS

SOUTH CAROLINA (-13.5) VS. NC State: South Carolina once again will attempt to get Da’Ball Coach back into the spotlight with one of the best defensive units in the country. 10 starters are back to a unit that was very good last year despite injuries to LB Jasper Brinkley and CB Captain Munnerlyn. The key is for QB Chris Smelly to take the next step this year and not hold onto the ball like he did at times last season. The running game is solid and if Smelly can become a downfield threat, then great things could be in store for this group. NC State on the other hand is a team that is still trying to work out the kinks after struggling early in losing their first five games of 2007 under coach Tom O’Brien. They rebounded to win four of six but there are still issues in the running game and the offensive line. This doesn’t bode well for redshirt freshman QB Russell Wilson who needs all the help he can get against Spurrier’s solid D. The only problem is the fact the Gamecocks qualify in some negative betting angles so be careful with the backdoor cover. Slight endorsement to South Carolina here. THE PICK: South Carolina (-13.5)
