Virginia Tech Hokies vs Florida State Seminoles Betting Picks and Free Prediction

Two ranked teams with high hopes meet in the season opener when No. 19 Florida State Seminoles begins the Willie Taggart era with a visit from No. 17 Virginia Tech for an ACC showdown Monday night. Taggart coaches his third team in three years as he comes over from Oregon to replace Jimbo Fisher and he will hand the quarterback reins to junior Deondre Francois, who beat out sophomore James Blackman for the job after missing most of 2017 with a knee injury.

“Just looking at the body of work since we’ve been here, I will say it was a really tight battle,” Taggart told reporters. “I thought our offense worked a lot more efficient when Deondre was in there. He did a great job of taking care of the football, which is the most important thing. I think a lot of that just goes with experience.” The Seminoles look to build off a four-game winning streak that ended 2017 and extended their streak of winning seasons to 41 while Virginia Tech begins play after going 19-8 in the first two years under coach Justin Fuente.

The Hokies will lean on talented quarterback Josh Jackson, who threw for a freshman school record 2,991 yards along with 20 touchdowns last year, and boast a load of talent that they are excited to test on the big stage early on. “There’s no better way than to open up against Florida State Seminoles, at their place,” Virginia Tech senior defensive tackle Ricky Walker, who had 4.5 sacks in 2017, told the Roanoke Times. “Playing on the road is a little different. It’s more special.”
