The 2012 Virginia Tech Hokies are the favorites on the ACC Odds with Frank Beamer and his brand of pigskin going for their ninth consecutive season with double digit wins. Linebacker sized QB Logan Thomas (6’6″ 262 Lbs.) is a Heisman Trophy contender and the Hokies are in most college football picks experts top-25. Thomas and the offense must deal with only three returning starters but the Hokies appear to have reloaded nicely despite the inexperience. The defense is one of the most lethal brands in college football and Frank Beamer knows how to rally his troops especially in front of the rabid Virginia Tech fans. Our college football predictions experts took an in-depth look at the 2012 Virginia Tech Hokies ACC Odds and 2013 BCS Odds. The Hokies are at +2800 moneyline ($1000 to win $28,000) on the BCS Odds in Vegas.
College Football Picks Analysis: The Hokies have question marks on the offensive side of the ball but former tight end turned quarterback Logan Thomas gives the Hokies the ability to score 30+ points per game. Thomas is going to be a Sunday millionaire in the NFL next year and despite playing behind a line that has only 17 career starts this should be the best offense in the ACC Coastal. Running back will be down a few pegs with the departure of David Wilson who was a #1 draft pick but the WR’s corps appear reloaded despite being inexperienced. The ACC Odds have the 2012 Virginia Tech Hokies listed at +300 moneyline to win the conference.
The defense is a ferocious brand with a D-line that is among the best in the country. The line features a dominating edge rusher in James Gayle who plays at the stud position. The linebacking corps is arguably the best in the ACC led by senior Bruce Taylor. The Hokies allowed just 3.2 yards per carry last year and return six of seven players at LB. The secondary is well-schooled and with 32 returning starts they should also be among the best in the ACC. Frank Beamer puts his stamp on the special teams unit year in and year out and this season they appear to again be among the best in the country. The ACC Odds for the Coastal have the Hokies at +100 moineyline.
