The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. In the past three years, this proprietary computer model has generated a jaw-dropping $4,210 profit for $100 bettors.
The model has also been red-hot on its top-rated college football picks this season, nailing its past four in Week 5 to improve its overall record to 49-36. That run included correctly calling the under (69.5) and Penn State (+3.5) against the spread vs. Ohio State in the huge Week 5 showdown between the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions. Anyone who has followed it is way, way up.
Now the model has simulated every single play of Notre Dame vs. Virginia Tech. We can tell you the under hits in a whopping 72 percent of simulations, but it has also locked in a strong against-the-spread selection that you can bank on over 60 percent of the time. You can only see it at SportsLine.
The model knows that since switching to Ian Book as their starting quarterback, the Fighting Irish have found a new gear on offense. Book has thrown for 601 yards and six touchdowns in the past two weeks as Notre Dame has scored 94 points and won by an average of 25.
But just because Notre Dame’s offense is firing on all cylinders with Book under center doesn’t mean it can cover a 6.5-point spread on the road against Virginia Tech.
Ryan Willis’ first start for Virginia Tech went extremely well against Duke last Saturday. The Hokies accumulated over 400 yards of offense and the Kansastransfer threw for 332 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions.
Virginia Tech’s defense also played extremely well against the Blue Devils, recording seven tackles for loss with two sacks and two quarterback hurries. With their raucous crowd behind them, the Hokies will look to duplicate last week’s performance against Notre Dame on Saturday night.
