This week I only have one pick. As the season moves along and we know what we have with some of these teams, I will pick 2-4 games a week. Remember I bring you quality not quantity.
Bama -20 Va. Tech
Last year Bama was favored by 20 to 22 points in 4 games. In those 4 games they covered the spread by over 2 touchdowns on average. Plus Virginia Tech got very beat up in fall camp. I was really surprised that this line only moved 2 points since it opened.
When almost 40% of your roster is freshman and redshirt freshmen, you probably don't want to face little Nicky with 7 months to prepare.
Nearly 40 percent of Virginia Tech's travel squad (27 of 71) for Alabama will be either true or redshirt freshmen
