Virginia Tech Hokies (5-2) at Pittsburgh Panthers (5-2)

A pair of (5-2) teams meet up at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh for Thursday Night ACC Football.  Virginia Tech is fresh off a big 37-16 win over Miami.   As for the Panthers, they’re sporting a 5-2 record this year and have won three in a row following a 45-31 win over Virginia in their last outing.

Frank Beamer rarely had great offensive teams but under head coach Bud Foster, they are averaging 35.9 points per game and 238.3 passing yards per game. The defense is still strong under their long-time defensive coordinator, as they allowing just 302 yards per game which ranks 11th in the nation and 103.6 rushing yards per game (11th).

Quarterback Jerod Evans passed for 259 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing for 98 yards and a score against the struggling Hurricanes last week.  They hope Evans offensive production carries over to this evening’s game vs Pitt.

Pittsburgh should feel good as they enter this matchup winners of three straight games over Georgia Tech, Marshall and Virginia.  Scoring points has not been an issue for the Panthers, who have averaged 38.4 points per game (23rd) and 239.1 rushing yards per game (20th). The fact that they are scoring a ton of points without a strong passing game is impressive, because they are averaging just 178.9 passing yards per game.

Virginia Tech vs Pitt Betting Trends:
Virginia Tech is  6-2 ATS last 8 conference games and 22-10 ATS last 32 Thursday games.

Pitt is 5-17 ATS last 22 home games and 2-7 ATS last 9 overall.

Virginia Tech should force this Pitt team to throw the ball by stopping their run game.  The Hokies can stop the rush and if they are effective it will force Nathan Peterman to pass more than this Panthers team is comfortable.  The Hokies have the offense and defense to cover this small spread on the road.
Virginia Tech vs Pitt Betting Prediction: Virginia Tech -3.5
