Social predictions and betting insights on the West Virginia vs Virginia Tech matchup.

West Virginia Mountaineers have since recovered from their two losses in the opening fixtures with a win in the latest match against the Towson Tigers. They are a decent side and their losses came against some top sides. I, therefore, expect the Mountaineers to give the Hokies a run for their money in this fixture. West Virginia is averaging 46 points per fixture while the Hokies average 23.7. Take the Mountaineers to win and cover the spread.

West Virginia has been in three high scoring games and they had a solid effort against #24 Pittsburgh. Last week, the Mountaineers beat Towson 65-7. The offense put up 624 yards, did well with time of possession, and the defense had three quarters of shutout football. Virginia Tech has won two games in a row and the scoring has been around the low to mid 20s. They just beat Wofford 27-7. The Hokies put up 475 yards and didn't give up a touchdown until garbage time. Both teams are coming off of solid wins and this should be a back and forth, close game. Take the over.

VT stinks. They looked bad against Wofford, even with winning by 20. Their running game didn't do much, averaging 3.2 yards a game. They haven't score over 27, and average less than 370 yards per game. CJ Donaldson is going to do well against the VT defense even though they've been pretty stout all year. VT just haven't played an opponent like WVU yet. West Virginia is 12-4 the last 16 ATS in September. I think West Virginia is a far better team talent wise, and I'd be surprised if don't win and cover the spread.

It’s difficult to really gauge what West Virginia is. They’ve lost two close games to decent opponents, and have a win over an overmatched Townson team. V-Tech has a bad loss to Old Dominion and two wins over low level teams in Wofford and Boston College who have been lost as a program for almost a decade now. However, they looked good in those wins with both being multi-touchdown deficits. Tech’s offense has improved with 475 total yards last week while their defense has followed, giving up just 199 total yards, while West Virginia still hasn’t found their foundation. I like Tech to take this one as they seem to keep improving while West Virginia just treads water.

Prediction: Virginia Tech to win as the underdog.

Virginia tech has won 6 of their last 9 at home and West Virginia has lost 5 of their last 7 on the road, Virginia Tech is a tough place to play even though the Hokies are not as strong as years past! Virginia Tech can run the ball and has a stiff defense!
