West Virginia vs Virginia Tech Prediction & Pick
This is a rivalry that dates all the way back to 1912 and it has involved some thrilling games. When these two teams met in Morgantown last year, the Mountaineers emerged victorious by a score of 27-21. It's worth noting that it was their first win against the Hokies since the 2003 season, though.
When it comes down it, I'll side with the more impressive offense here. West Virginia is averaging a respectable 36.5 points per game in 2022 (No. 32 in FBS), while Virginia Tech is only averaging 22.0 PPG (T-No. 87 in FBS). A strong rushing attack will help the Mountaineers secure a win on the road.
Final Score Prediction: West Virginia: 27 | Virginia Tech: 23

This one is a toss up, so it's better to shift gears to betting on the total. The last seven meetings between these two teams have resulted in an average total of 42.1 points. The under has hit in five of those seven games and it has also hit in nine of Virginia Tech's last 12 games at Lane Stadium overall.
The rushing attack of West Virginia combined with the defensive prowess of Virginia Tech should lead to a lot of lengthy drives that stall out in the red zone. This game is going to be a close one, but seeing a shootout would be surprising. Back the under with confidence in this weeknight showdown.
Bet: Under 52.5 Points (-110)
