North Carolina vs. Virginia Tech Pick

North Carolina vs. Virginia Tech College Basketball Predictions 1/22/18

Is No. 15 North Carolina set to go on the road and cover a small spread against Virginia Tech when the two meet up tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, North Carolina is favored on the road today, as the Tar Heels are getting odds of -4 points against Virginia Tech. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 164 points. Today’s game takes place from Cassell Coliseum in Blacksburg, Virginia and will air live on ESPN.

North Carolina has won four straight coming into today’s game. The Tar Heels are 16-4 overall, 5-2 in the ACC and 11-7-1 against the spread. UNC is averaging 82.7 points per game on offense this year while allowing 71.2 per game. Luke Maye is averaging 17.8 points and 10.5 rebounds per game to lead UNC while Joel Berry II is adding 17.3 points per game.

Virginia Tech has lost its last two games entering tonight’s contest. The Hokies are now 13-6 overall, 2-4 in the ACC and 8-7 against the spread. Tech is putting up 85.6 points per game on offense this year while allowing 73 per game on defense. Ahmed Hill is leading the Hokies with 14.7 points per game while Kerry Blackshear Jr. is adding 13.4 points and 6.5 rebounds per contest.

Bet on North Carolina vs. Virginia Tech

UNC has won seven straight meetings with Virginia Tech, but the Hokies are 6-2 against the spread in the last eight encounters. I think Tech has what it takes to cover tonight at home, if not win outright. The Hokies are putting up 88.2 per game at home while UNC averages just 74.4 per game on the road. UNC is 0-2-1 ATS in its last three on the road and those were small spreads as well. The public betting is slightly with UNC, but I am going to take the Hokies at home.
