Miami was the trendy ACC conference championship pick, but it has gone poorly for Mario Cristobal's team in his first season with the Hurricanes.

Miami is losers of three straight, now 2-3 on the season, and will host another team with a first year head coach in Virginia Tech, who is 2-4 under Brent Pry. Can one team get on track in Blacksburg, Virginia on Saturday afternoon?

Let's check out the odds for this ACC meeting:

Miami vs. Virginia Tech Prediction and Pick

Both teams haven't been kind to bettors this season, each cashing just once against the spread as each team has struggled on offense.

Miami doesn't appear content with Tyler Van Dyke and he is short key weapons like Xavier Restrepo. They've benched Van Dyke already this season and the team couldn't get it going on offense last week against a poor ACC defense in North Carolina last week, scoring 24 points and averaging less than two yards per carry.

Now, they head to Virginia Tech to face a Hokies team that is in the early stages of a rebuild and are starting to looked run down on defense, allowing 30 or more points in their last three games. However, I think that Miami will be the worst offense they have faced in four games as the team looks out of sorts on that side of the ball.

Miami's defensive line has been strong, first in line yards and 18th in yards allowed per carry. Virginia Tech's offense has zero big play threats and I don't expect them to find the end zone often. Despite the game against Pitt becoming a shootout last week, a lot of that was due to Israel Abanikanda rushing for 320 yards in the win.

Miami doesn't have that weapon on offense and this should be a grinding affair that finishes under the total.

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
