This happens when a match is suspended, posponed, or cancelled e.g. Void bets occur when the bet is not decided as a win or loss and the stake is returned to the player. a common void bet occurs in tennis when a player retires through injury.

The Hokies can compete on defense, despite being beaten up by some others. The Hokies have struggled on offense in terms of consistently putting up points. BC isnt terribly creative on offense, so its smashmouth style should lead to some lengthy possessions. With the total approaching 60 points, I like the under. Despite the turn on offense this season, the Eagles are still a pretty good defensive team and I think they will give Virginia Tech problems.

A future NFL running back (AJ Dillon) mixed in with a B1G-esque offensive line will be especially rough to handle for a Virginia Tech defense looking for answers. Group tackling will be crucial in order to bring down the main cog for the Boston College offense. The Eagles defense hasn't lived up to their billing in terms of yardage allowed, but they are exceptionally talented on the defensive line and making plays in the secondary. I'm just not confident in either unit to do such. Not only did the Hokies surrender465 rushing yards against Georgia Tech, but they struggled in keeping defenders healthy. If the offense can sustain drives and the defense can keep Dillon from posting Heisman numbers, this will be a win. AJ Dillon is a bruising force at 6-foot 245-pounds and weighs as much or more than eight out of eleven Hokies defenders.
