The ACC - Big Ten Challenge continues tonight, and I found another game I really feel is a money maker for the player. Michigan comes into this game, a favorite and at home, and fresh off a easy win over Mt. St. Mary 64-47. However the game before that, South Carolina beat Michigan, upsetting them 61- 46. Michigan could not have played any worse. Michigan was 2-26 from 3 point range. Michigan is currently 229th in the country in scoring. Yet tonight, lines makers feel Michigan should be favored, although they are at home. Virginia Tech has been shooting well to start the season averaging 48.5% this year. Hokie Zach LaDay seems to have emerged as a very pleasant surprise unexpectedly, in his senior year, as earlry in the season he came off the bench and now seems to be a leader who now averages 34 minutes a game, and as now a starter. Surprisingly now LaDay leads Virginia Tech in points scored, rebounds and and steals along with blocked shots. The only game LaDay was "shut down" was when Texas A&M stopped him cold, and A&M got the win outright. There is no doubt in my mind that Virginia Tech can match up well with the size of Michigan so it will come down to which team can shoot contested shots better than the other. I expect Virginia Tech to outshoot Michigan as so far the Hokies have faced a tougher schedule.This is one of those games I am perplexed as to how Michigan can be such a larger favorite despite being at home. So I see Virginia Tech keeping this game super close throughout, if not see the lead go back and forth with Virginia Tech getting my vote to at least cover the spread if not win outright. My prediction: Take VIRGINIA TECH +6 1/.2

michigan blew my mind in how good they have looked this year.....the gamecock loss is one not to dwell on much since michigan jus  came out of a tourney and were flat as could be.....be wary of that  gym that michigan plays very well at with the students in your face

bone   Very good point; but the other facts I cited are certainly relevant and in my opinion outweigh your very true opinion. If I'm wrong, we know it won't be the first time, but that fact of Michigan being 229th in the country in shooting is drastic and must be seriously considered. Considered enough I had to bet against Michigan tonight. No doubt Michigan can win by 6 or less and that will be just fine. I like money. Good luck.

ha....like money as well   michigan has stomped mudholes in 4 of their 5 opponents   and its jus 5 games   so your shooting % means absolut zero .......in the sc game michigan shot so poorly it was unreal so look at the boxscore and adust your belt...bol...and if you have followed me thru the years....well   i kinda do pretty good in this sport to put it mildly......

Hokie fans

Getting the deficit under double digits by halftime is very important, for a multitude of reasons.  39-30 after Hokies playing so flatfooted is a mark of grace.
