Pick/ Counter Pick: Week 12 - Thursday Game
It's Techy (6-3, 3-2) @ Cocaines (6-3, 3-2) -5.0.
MGoBastard: Thursday Night game, lock the home team! right? Not so fast this time, this requires some consternation - where's my coffee and the sports page... Miami has been indestructible at home on Thursday night (just ask Texas A&M) and VT brings in a not so good offense (while Miami counters with a young, fast D). However, VT now has a running game in Darren Evans and VT has a defense of its own too. The relatively large line (-5.0) has this bastard a bit nervous., but I'm still going to have to go with the home team, even though they're not the dog. Miami 23- VT 17. Confidence 12
Hemlock Philosopher: Pure lines... The common thought is that Thursday night belongs to the home dogs (6-0 ATS), but in Weekly 13 games, the away dog is also doing quite well at 4-2 ATS. Out and Out, dogs are 10-2 on Thursday nights. The only losses being MD20/20 at VaTech and Clemson against Wake - two ACC games. This being and ACC game gives doubt to my VT lean. But VT has performed mighty well in week night games, so I am going to keep them for the cover and win. VT 27-24. Confidence 9.
