A 4-1 week has quickly turned my record favorably. I'm still a bit shocked by Temple's dud for my loss last week. Still don't feel I'm in a steady groove and need a sound Week 5 before I'm fully willing to believe in myself.
Duke +3 at Virginia Tech (Friday)
In full disclosure, I try to target three-ish games Sunday night when lines first come out, and stick to them when I pen this column. That is incredibly scary here, as I locked in on Duke at +7, and it slowly has moved as low as +2.5 in some places. I'm hoping that movement may help in the end and force some money on the Hokies, maybe pushing this back to a +3.5 range. By all means, line shop. On the field, I've been impressed with the effort Duke has turned in, competing with Alabama in Week 1, despite the final score, and blowing out Middle Tennessee and North Carolina A&T by a combined 55 points while allowing 31. The same can't be said for the Hokies, who have labored to wins over Old Dominion and Furman, while their loss to Boston College doesn't look like a "good" loss. I find the Blue Devils to be the far better coached team, and they've won two of their last three in Lane Stadium. Line movement be damned, I think they can and will win outright.
