Virginia Tech Hokies College Football Betting
The 2022 season for the Virginia Tech Hokies was nothing short of a huge disappointment. The Hokies won just three games during the season and finished 3-8 SU and 4-7 ATS, with three games going over the total and eight going under. Virginia Tech won just one game in the ACC conference all season and finished in a tie for last place in the Coastal Division with Virginia, as they went 1-6 in conference play. The Hokies didn’t even get a chance to play their regular season finale, as the game vs. Virginia was cancelled. That may have been the best thing for a Virginia Tech team that struggled on both sides of the ball. The Hokies were pathetic on offense, as they averaged under 20 points per game in 2022. For bettors, the one thing that proved to be the most profitable was to bet Virginia Tech games under the total, as they went under in eight of their 11 games.
Virginia Tech averaged only 19.3 points per game and that was 118th in the country. They are averaging 315.1 yards per game. The Hokies gave up 24.7 points per game and allowed 370.8 yards per contest. Keshawn King led the team with 443 yards rushing; Grant Wells threw for 2,171 yards, while Kaleb Smith had 674 receiving yards. TyJuan Garbutt led the team with 6.5 sacks.
