Virginia Tech football: Marshall opens as favorites over the Hokies

The Virginia Tech Hokies dropped to 1-2 on the season after Saturday’s loss at Rutgers. It was another ugly performance from the Hokies, who continue their struggles against Power Five teams.

Next up is the Marshall Thundering Herd. Surely, the Hokies will catch some kind of break against Marshall, right? Not necessarily, and the Hokies will make the short trip north to Huntington as underdogs this weekend.

According to BetMGM, Marshall is a 5.5-point favorite over Virginia Tech. After a home loss to Purdue, followed by an embarrassing performance at Rutgers, the oddsmakers aren’t too keen on the Hokies.
