ACC Championship point spread: Virginia Tech vs. Boston College

The betting preview and point spread on the ACC Championship game Virginia Tech vs. Boston College.

ACC Championship point spread: Virginia Tech vs. Boston College The Saturday college football games are closing in with a few championship games. Here we will look into the point spread, betting trends and odds on the ACC Championship game between the No.6 Virginia Tech (10-2) and No.12 Boston College (10-2). The leaders in the Atlantic and Coastal will meet on Saturday with the likely prize being participation in the Orange Bowl. And currently at the online sportsbook Bodog Sports, the point spread on the Virginia Tech vs. Boston College game is favoring the Hokies -5 points. The betting odds on the ACC Championship at Bookmaker also favor Virginia Tech with line -190 and Boston College will be underdog with odds on winning the game at  +160.

 The Hokies will definitely look to settle the score on Saturday, after Boston College dropped a bomb on them in October 10-14 and end their dreams for a national title in the final minutes of the game. But after Boston College lost the next two games to Florida State and Maryland, the bookies feel uncomfortable making them favorite against grudge-holding Virginia Tech. Add to this a long list of injuries and Boston College finds itself with +5 point spread. The Eagles will play without safeties Marty Bowman and Wes Davis, linebackers Brian Toal and Jack Geiser, running back Jeff Smith, cornerback DeJuan Tribble and defensive end Alex Albright. Meanwhile Virginia Tech reported that tight ends Chris Drager and Sam Wheeler, running back Elan Lewis and corner Roland Minor will all miss the game against Boston College, with wide receiver Ike Whitaker still questionable for the Saturday's game.

 Would Virginia Tech cover the spread depends on whether they will keep to their stats. Although the Hokies and the Eagles post the same numbers in the points scored with 29.3 and 29.7 points respectively, Virginia Tech is edging on Boston College in defense, allowing only 15.4 points on average, compared to BC with 19.5 points per game. Another thing to keep in mind - Virginia Tech is 6-1 against the spread in its last 7 games and Boston College is 2-4 against the spread in its last 6 games.

 The ACC Championship game between Virginia Tech and Boston College will be played on Saturday at Grass of Jacksonville Municipal Stadium; you can catch it live on ABC at 1:00 pm EST.
