    Michigan has the name and the national draw. That's it. Another reason why this system is a bunch of bullshit. Hell, MSU even beat Michigan head to head. They were penalized for losing in the Big Ten championship game basically.

    I just put in 15* on the U51.5. Hoping Hokies can contain Robinson from the big plays and keeping a 27-17 score in the favor of the hookies

    Vegas runs on money and not what percentage is on a game. 100 guys betting $100 is the same as 1 guy betting 10k on the other side. The percentage looks one sided but money is equal.

    Very true. Game is still a toss-up. Vtech feels disrespected, which I don't know what to make of - they should know they have no business in this game. VCU stole someone else's spot to get in the big dance, but did quite well once they got in.

    A lot of good points can just get thrown out the window when it comes to these games.

    I like how strong Michigan came on as the year progressed. I'm on them -2.5 tonight.

    This guy gets the equation. Too many mother fukers don't understand basic math.

    Lang is on Michigan or that would be my play. Hokies are ranked higher than Michigan and are getting 3. If you don't see the red flag turn the light on, motel 6 does.

I couldn't see 2 favorites covering in prime time... but it almost happened. That TD was called back. Unreal. Don't know why Oklahoma State didn't just pound it in there at the 1? But, honestly... I've been looking at this VT MICH game for awhile... I wanted to hit one game very hard... and I may risk even more than $2,500. Something tells me the heart and soul of Michigan is Robinson... you find a way to shut him down... Michigan isn't going to score. Michigan can't count on their defense for TO's into points... They don't even have a good special teams.... Frank Beamer isn't stupid... I'm sure they have several formulas for Robinson tonight... you crack the code... Michigan is a goner. No one could change momentum for Michigan if this occurs. I've seen Robinson get so down on himself on the sidelines... F with this kids head... it's all over. VT will be ready. Just a feeling.

    GL Mike as always

    Michigan State didn't get the BCS bid, Neither did Michigan, its because Wisconsin beat Michigan State in the Championship game. Therefore Wisconsin got the BCS bid because they won the Big 10. Either way Big 10 sucks, inferior to the SEC

    Im on Va Tech here Michigans over achieved this year and I expect Beamer to have the Hokies ready to crack heads and hopefully produce a special teams TD.

    Man I hope this old man (Beamer) has an amazing 2H plan... he'll have to throw on every down... seems like the only thing working for VT on offense.

    Screwed up on that 2Q 4th down play... VT could of put so much pressure on Michigan early... even making it 9-0 would of been better. Should of would of could of... praying to the gambling gods now.

    what a game to chase on. This game has so many short-comings that Vtech loses. This is reminding me of when i had georgia when they played vtech and came back from 21 down by starting off the half with an on-sides kick. Covered to hokies... While not the same scenario its the same feeling. Uh oh. Game is over.
