In order to get through the Week 4 ACC picks, we’ll see a few good games and a few bad ones. The latter includes Boston College’s game, which of course is not being picked today.

“Bad” is a relative term, unless you think Army at Wake Forest is going to be a barnburner.

Picks are straight-up and against-the-spread for your edification.

Week 4 ACC Picks: Saturday Early Games

Georgia Tech at Virginia Tech (-9) | 12pm, ESPN. I don’t see the Hokies losing back-to-back weeks after the letdown they just had. Consider also that I’m not that impressed with Georgia Tech yet. VT | VT -9

Iowa at Pittsburgh (-6.5) | 12pm, ESPNU. Iowa will be a tough test for the Panthers but I’m going ACC here. Pittsburgh | Pitt -6.5

Maryland at Syracuse (PK) | 12:30pm, ESPN3. It pains me to side with them, but the Terps are probably slightly better. Maryland

Tulane at Duke (-17) | 12:30pm, ESPN3. Should be a snooze. Duke | Duke -17

Maine at Boston College | 1pm, ESPN3. See ya tomorrow with the pick.

Week 4 ACC Picks: Saturday Mid-Afternoon Games

Louisville (-27) at FIU | 3:30pm, FS1. The Cardinals probably come back with a vengeance following the Virginia game. Louisville | Louisville -27

Virginia at BYU (-14) | 3:30pm, ESPN. The Cavaliers have looked better than I might have thought and have already given a couple ranked teams runs. BYU | UVA +14

Army (-2.5) at Wake Forest | 3:30pm, ESPN3. The winner will be the team that stinks the least. Army being horrible on the road for the last several years might be the edge. WF | WF +2.5

North Carolina at East Carolina (-2) | 3:30pm, ESPNU. The Carolina team is going to win. I’ll show myself out. UNC | UNC +2

Week 4 ACC Picks: Saturday Night Games

Presbyterian at NC State | 6:00pm, ESPN3. zZzZzZzZzZzZz. NC State

Miami at Nebraska (-7.5) | 8:00pm, ESPN2. Miami is Nebraska’s biggest test yet, but the Huskers are looking too good overall. Nebraska | NEB -7.5

Clemson at Florida State (-16.5) | 8:00pm, ABC. By far the most watchable ACC game this week. No Jameis in the first half could make this game more uncomfortable. FSU | CLEM +16.5
