Week 13 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes an ACC showdown between the Virginia Cavaliers and Virginia Tech Hokies. Winning has eluded the Cavaliers for nearly a month and their losing streak was extended to three games with a 37-7 blowout loss to Pittsburgh back in Week 11.
Meanwhile, Virginia Tech snapped a seven-game losing skid with a 23-22 win against Liberty on Saturday. Running back Jalen Holston, more or less, was the Hokies' entire offense in the victory, scoring each of his team's three touchdowns while racking up 99 rushing yards on 26 carries.

Virginia vs Virginia Tech Prediction & Pick
Virginia Tech has dominated this rivalry over the years, winning 60 of the 98 all-time matchups. The Hokies' dominance is at the point where they've won 21 of their last 23 games against the Cavaliers, having not lost at home to their ACC rivals since November 1998.
I also see Virginia Tech taking advantage of Virginia's poor run defense. While the Hokies' ground attack hasn't been anything special, they are averaging 139.3 rushing yards over their last three games and get to face a Cavaliers frontline that just gave up 189 rushing yards to Pittsburgh two weeks ago.
With the home crowd's support also factoring into Virginia Tech controlling the game, I'll take the Hokies picking up another victory in this ACC rivalry.
Final Score Prediction: Virginia Tech: 27 | Virginia: 23

With how much Virginia Tech has dominated this ACC rivalry, I don't see the outcome changing this year. Neither team looks great this season, but there isn't much reason to trust Virginia after being held to 17 or fewer points in seven of its last nine games this season.
Since the Hokies have covered the spread in five of their last six matchups against the Cavaliers, I'm taking Virginia Tech as the -1.5 favorite.
Bet: Virginia Tech -1.5 (-110)
