ACC College Basketball Predictions: Virginia vs. Virginia Tech 1/3/18

Who will pick up a rivalry win when Virginia Tech hosts No. 8 Virginia in ACC action tonight at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, Virginia is the slim favorite on the road, as the Cavaliers are getting odds of -2 points against Virginia Tech. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 131.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Cassell Coliseum in Blacksburg, Virginia and will air live on the ACC Network.

Virginia is on a four-game win streak since suffered a 68-61 loss at West Virginia. The Cavaliers are 12-1 overall, 1-0 in the ACC and 7-3 against the spread. UVA is just 1-2 ATS in its last three lined games. The Cavs average 71.1 points per game on offense while giving up just 52.8 per contest. Kyle Guy is averaging 15.7 points per game to lead Virginia while Devon Hall is adding 11.5 points and 3.9 rebounds per contest.

Virginia Tech is coming off a 68-56 loss at Syracuse and the Hokies are 2-2 in their last four. The Hokies are now 11-3 overall, 0-1 in the ACC and 7-3 against the spread. Tech has failed to cover in its last two lined games. They are averaging 88.8 points per game on offense while allowing 70.1 per game on defense. Ahmed Hill is leading Virginia Tech with 15.6 points per game while Justin Bibbs is adding 14.6 points per contest.

Bet on Virginia vs. Virginia Tech

The home team has won five straight meetings in this series and the Hokies are 5-2 against the spread in the last seven against Virginia. I like the Virginia defense, but it doesn’t translate as well on the road. The Cavs are giving up 67.5 per game on the road. They are set to face an offense that is averaging 93.8 points per game on offense at home. The public betting is backing Virginia tonight, but I like the Hokies at home to get the job done.
