Virginia Tech still bringing a Lunch Pail mentality to the gridiron.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting. College Football Betting Predictions are the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS-title game in January of 2019. Since coming to Blacksburg, Virginia from the University of Memphis Justin Fuente has not entirely won over the faithful but a trip to the 2018 Conference title game could quite the critics. In 2016 Virginia Tech won the Coastal division and gave eventual BCS champions Clemson all they could handle before bowing 35-24. Last season they took a step back as Miami took control, but the Hokies ended up with ten victories and a number-sixteen national ranking both in the Coaches and Associated Press polls. The 2018 Hokies will get tested the first game of 2018 at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Florida against the Seminoles of Florida State in Willie Taggart’s debut. The non-conference slate is relatively easy, but they host Notre Dame, Miami, Georgia Tech, Boston College and rivals Virginia which all will be competitive games. A trip to Pittsburgh could have implications.

For the first time in the Fuente era they have an incumbent signal caller, Sophomore Josh Jackson (2,991) passing yards has a year of experience with it came to a vote of confidence from the coaching staff in spring drills. The offensive coordinator has the task of getting the unit to a comfort zone for Fuente which is a balance of scoring plenty of points through the air and on the ground. Wide Receivers Sean Savoy and Eric Kumah must replace the production of the Hokies all-time leading pass catcher Cam Phillips. There’s also senior C.J. Carroll along with Ball State transfer Damon Hazelton. The Virginia Tech rushing attack didn’t scare opponents last season, they ranked fifty-fourth on the national scale and was next to last on average yards per carry in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Massive offensive tackle Yosuah Nijman is the headliner in a group that returns two other starters to block for compact running back Steven Peoples who won’t win many foot races but will run over defenders. Fuente must use disguises in formations; the Hokies aren’t explosive enough to compete for with the elite football institutes in the ACC.

When talking about Virginia Tech defense the first name that comes to mind is Bud Foster who’s twenty-third season serving as the Hokies defensive coordinator is unmatched in College Football. However, two first-round draft selections must be replaced along with stud tackle Tim Settle and defensive back Greg Stroman. Virginia Tech allowed the opposition (14.8) ppg last season, fourth nationally and if they are nearly as good this season, Foster should have a monument on campus. Ricky Walker is the leader of what should be a productive front four, but there is inexperience in the back seven. The coaching staff hopes special teams standout Dylan Rivers will make an immediate impact at linebacker, but he was shaky in spring football. Cornerback and safety will be inexperienced, but Foster has plenty of recruiting connections in the Hampton Roads area which has been a goldmine for Virginia Tech for producing secondary players; look for a couple of first-year students to become immediate starters this season. Bovada.Lv, list the Virginia Tech Hokies at 16/1 to win the 2018-19 Atlantic Coast Conference Crown.
