Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Virginia Tech Hokies
Bowl Game Spread Pick: Arkansas +7 points (December 29th 2016)
Arkansas was an inconsistent team this year, but it appears they are ready for this Bowl Game on Thursday. The Razorbacks said their senior linebacker, Dre Greenlaw, is going to be available. Greenlaw was their best linebacker before getting injured early in the season. Also, 5th year senior running back, Kody Walker, appears he is going to play. These guys are added bonuses, but it also tells me the team wants to win this game.
Arkansas has developed a nice passing game this year and they have the receivers to break away from the Hokies secondary. Arkansas still does a great job of taking time off the clock, ranking 2nd in time of possession this year and can keep the ball away from the Virginia Tech offense.
Arkansas hasn’t lost two consecutive games this year. They are coming off a season ending loss at Missouri. They have been able to rebound off a loss every time and I think they can do it again here. Arkansas has won their last 3 bowl games. Virginia Tech lost their bowl game last year as a favorite against Tulsa. Virginia Tech also might not be as excited for this game after losing the ACC Championship game to Clemson.

Arkansas’s defense is down a bit this year, but they have talented defensive players with a lot of experience. I think they are better than what the statistics show this year and it will show in this game. The Hogs have their work cut out containing Hokies quarterback Jerod Evans, but I think this game comes down to the wire, decided by 3-4 points. (1* Arkansas) – Brandon Shively

Justin Fuente is a great hire for the Virginia Tech Hokies to take over for Frank Beamer. Fortunately for him, he was able to convince long-time defensive coordinator Bud Foster to stick around. The Hokies have 15 starters back this year and one of the best defenses in the ACC. They held Liberty to just 160 total yards in their 36-13 win last week. Tennessee should have lost to Appalachian State last week, but survived 20-13 in OT after the Mountaineers missed an extra point and a field goal, and after the Vols fumbled in OT, but luckily recovered it in the end zone. The Vols are way over-hyped early in the season, and that’s reflected in this line once again as they are double-digit favorites when they shouldn’t be. Tennessee is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games vs. ACC opponents. Take Virginia Tech.

This is not just your usual revenge game. This is an in-state rivalry and a series that Virginia has dominated in the past until last month when the Virginia Tech Hokies surprised Virginia beating them 70-68. Virginia had won the previous seven meetings prior to that game. Buzz WIlliams has done a great job with his Hokie team this season and Virginia is not as good as the preseason hype, but I think this spot fits them good tonight and they are starting to peak at just the right time.
When looking at this game initially, it might seem like a lot of points to be laying, but Virginia’s defense has been looking like the ‘defense of old’ lately as they haven’t allowed over 50 points in their last three games. The Cavaliers are only allowing 56 ppg at home this season while Virginia Tech is giving up 76 ppg on the road. I think this game comes down to defense and the Hokies have given up 77 or more points on the road in four of their last five conference games. I see this as one of those 76-55 type of final scores.
While the Hokies are 8-2 ATS their last ten games, they are starting to be a bit ‘overvalued’ now in my opinion and with tournament time right around the corner, I am expecting the Virginia Cavaliers to pick up the intensity. Look for them to cover this double digit spread Tuesday night. *Virginia*
I gave out a Free Winner in the NBA last night with the Bulls/Hornets ‘Under’. My Two Premium picks both lost as I was looking to go 1-1 until the Phoenix Suns missed the cover as they were only down by four points with less than four minutes to play. I am back tonight and expecting to get back in the winner’s circle. I have my NBA ‘Totals Game of the Week’ and my Eastern Conference Game of the Week both loaded. NBA Premiums are 16-6 (72.7%) my last 22 and I am 41-23 (64%) my last 64 premium releases overall. Check back after lunch as I waiting for the ‘lines to settle’ as their is a BIG game in College Hoops that I am looking to add to my card for Tuesday night.
