College Football Betting News: East Carolina fires defensive coordinator

09.12.2017     08:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last season, East Carolina opened with a 52-7 win over Western Carolina, followed that up with a 33-30 win over NC State, and then lost by only five at South Carolina. Since then, the Pirates have won only once (vs. UConn), with 10 losses coming by 23.5 ppg. Sensing he may be out of a job soon if things don't turn around, Scottie Montgomery did what any head coach would do in this situation: fire a coordinator. Defensive coordinator Kenwick Thompson was let go after last week's 56-10 loss to West Virginia. And starting quarterback Thomas Sirk is questionable with concussion symptoms. Surprisingly, there's been a little support for ECU in the markets this week with Virginia Tech bet down from -22 to -20.5 road chalk.


“I know probably much will be made about East Carolina’s start,” Hokies coach Justin Fuente said Monday. “I can tell you they played two really, really quality opponents. I know there are not a lot of people in America running to their ADs

College Football Handicapping: Virginia Tech goes with redshirt frosh quarterback

08.15.2017     08:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Virginia Tech has named redshirt freshman Josh Jackson its Week 1 starter. Under first-year head coach Justin Fuente, last year's starter, Jerod Evans, broke a handful of single-season school records as the Hokies finished 10-4. Tech is currently a -4.5/-5 favorite for its season opener against West Virginia. The game will be played at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.


"Day in and day out he's been more consistent in terms of the things that we've talked about, the three criteria we've talked about before this camp started, and what we are looking for. Taking care of the football, expected outcomes, and how we feel. And in those three categories we feel the best about Josh," Fuente said.

"His execution, his level of understanding the offense, his ability to get out there play after play, and do exactly what he's supposed to do and protecting the football. He showed us that that's really important to him and those factors combined altogether," added Hokies offensive coordinator Brad

Virginia Tech +5.5 vs. Wisconsin O/U 136
Recommendation: Virginia Tech


Contrasting styles in this East Regional late tip-off which features teams who enter in very different form against the spread. For Virginia Tech the last 10 games have seen their supporters collect nine times. The only loss in the Hokies current 90% ticket cashing streak came on March 4 when they were -1.5 point favorites against Wake Forest in the second round of the ACC Tournament. VT is 7-1 ATS since losing third leading scorer Chris Clark. At the time, that injury to the Hokies most athletic player seemed devastating but they’ve gone 6-0 ATSas an underdog winning four of those straight up. A huge part of the success goes to their offense which posted a 57.1 effective FG% in ACC play which ranked #1 in the conference. Buzz Williams’ team was also #1 from 3-point range in league play shooting a stellar 41.4% led by Seth Allen (45.1%), Justin Bibbs (42.5%) and Ty Outlaw (48.2%. In all, five players have at least 107 3-point attempts and they all shoot 36.4% or better. That perimeter marksmanship will keep Wisconsin busy while they’ll Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Syracuse Orange at Virginia Tech Hokies

Syracuse at Virginia Tech -3 O/U 149
Recommendation: Under


Good spots for a solid defensive effort from Virginia Tech tonight as the Hokies coughed up 104 and 93 in recent road games to NC State and Florida State. It was a classic case of falling in love with offense after Tech averaged over 90 ppg its previous five including an 89-75 win over Duke. Syracuse meanwhile went through a similar swatch of poor defense having allowed 93 to St. John's and 96 to Boston College. The Orange slowed down the pace of the last two games (61 and 62 possessions) and held Miami and Pitt to 55 and 66 respectively in two comfortable wins. Inexperience at the point guard position and high possession games forced the Orange to tap into their lackluster bench. Jim Boeheim had obviously seen enough and has essentially gone with a five-man rotation. It's more evidence that we will continue to see Syracuse play a more controlled brand of basketball. The game got played down some earlier this morning but at 149 I think we can still look to play it under.

Texas A&M vs. Virginia Tech +2.5 O/U 144.5
Recommendation: Virginia Tech


Texas A&M lost a ton of experience from last year's group that won 28 games and reached the Sweet Sixteen. It was one of the most "together" teams in the country last year with clearly defined roles throughout the roster. This year's group has talent and the one constant under head coach Billy Kennedy is defense so I'm not expecting 2016-17 to be a total rebuild job. But there are going to be bumps in the road and we saw it first hand in A&M's recent home loss to USC in which they coughed up a lead late and lost 65-63. Virginia Tech head coach Buzz Williams did a masterful job last season as he took an ultra-young roster and produced 20 wins and a 10-8 record in ACC play. He was forced to play a number of kids who weren't ready to compete at such a high level but much of that group is back. Now you have a coach who is noted for getting kids to buy in and play hard in his second season. The Hokies' talent was on full display yesterday as they hung 92 points in a blowout win over New Mexico. It's a pretty big step up in class tonight as the Aggies will mark Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Virginia Tech Hokies at Duke Blue Devils

Virginia Tech at Duke
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ESPNU
CRIS Opener:
Virginia Tech -12 O/U 52.5
CRIS Current: Virginia Tech -10.5 O/U 54
Recommendation: Virginia Tech

Not at all confident that there’s much left in the Duke tank physically or mentally as they head into this game. Last week’s all-out effort in 38-35 loss at Georgia Tech was a brutal and a potentially finalizing blow to the Blue Devils who rallied from a 28-7 halftime deficit to take a 35-31 fourth quarter lead only to lose following a late Yellow Jacket touchdown. Furthering the frustration was the demoralizing loss of top back Jela Duncan whose season-ending leg injury was described by David Cutcliffe as “gut wrenching." Not real sure Duke can get up off the mat here despite the fact that it is a home game and one where a win is much needed since at 3-5, they must have victories in three of their final four games to become bowl eligible.            

The other sideline is a bit rosier as Virginia Tech is in high gear right now after Read more

College Football Betting: Virginia Tech adjusts to life at warp speed

08.24.2016     07:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Virginia Tech is one of a handful of teams that feature a first-year head coach implementing a completely different offensive system. Justin Fuente's plan is for the Hokies to play up-tempo. At no point during former head coach Frank Beamer's tenure did the offense stray from being “conventional.” Some of VT's players hinted that the change is significant and something that will likely take time to adjust to.


“Last year I was playing maybe 70-80 plays a game,” Phillips said, “and in this system, with the things we like to do now, that’s very, very difficult. You could call it unhealthy if you want.”

“I like the faster pace a lot,” Hodges said. “It creates a lot of mismatches. … The tempo is very different from previous years. The play-calling, the play design, are things I haven’t seen.”

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Virginia Tech Hokies at Boston College Eagles

Virginia Tech -6 at Boston College O/U 133.5
Recommendation: Over


Boston College has topped 60 points only six times in ACC play this season. It's almost impossible to do but the Eagles are averaging 0.82 points per possession. Last time out, they at one point trailed woeful Wake Forest 37-4 before losing 74-48. It was a low-point in a disaster of a season and back at home against a mediocre opponent, I look for a much better effort on the offensive end. And as bad as Boston College has been, its home games have typically featured a fair amount of points. At home in ACC play, BC home games have hit 145, 137, 120, 134, 133, and 136. Tonight presents another opportunity to top 130 points with Virginia Tech coming to town. The Hokies rank 11th in the ACC in defensive efficiency and outside of games against slow paced defensive-minded Virginia, Syracuse, Clemson and Miami, they've routinely scored 70+. Pace-wise, Boston College is so bad that the opposition almost always dictates the pace. Virginia Tech's tempo has slowed of late but it has more to do with the opposition. Games against Virginia, Miami, Clemson, and Syracuse were all in the low 60's. But Read more
