Virginia Tech vs. North Carolina Pick

CBB Predictions: Virginia Tech Hokies vs. North Carolina Tar Heels 1/26/17

Will No. 9 North Carolina have an easy time tonight when it hosts Virginia Tech in ACC action at 8PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, North Carolina is the clear favorite in this game, as the Tar Heels are getting odds of -14 points against the Hokies. The over/under total for the game is listed at 162.5 points. UNC has won the last six meetings with Virginia Tech, but the Hokies have covered the spread in four straight in this series.

Bet on Virginia Tech vs. North Carolina

UNC is on a six-game win streak coming into tonight to move to 18-3 on the season and 6-1 in the ACC. The Tar Heels are 4-2 against the spread during this run and 10-8-1 ATS on the season. UNC averages 88.7 points per game on offense while allowing just 71.2 points per game on defense. Their defensive is even stronger at home, allowing just 64.2 points per game. Justin Jackson is putting up 18.2 points and 5 rebounds per game to lead the team while Joel Berry II is adding 15.5 points per contest.

Virginia Tech has won three of its last four to move to 15-4 on the season and 4-3 in the ACC. The Hokies are 8-7 against the spread on the season and 2-4 ATS in their last six. Tech averages 81.5 points per game on offense while allowing 72.2 points per game on defense. However, on the road, Virginia Tech is averaging just 77.8 points on offense while giving up a whopping 87 points per game on defense. Zach LeDay is leading the Hokies with 16.3 points and 7.1 rebounds per game while Chris Clarke is adding 12.5 points and 7.8 boards per contest.

Virginia Tech has been pretty good at times, but the Hokies have some really poor numbers on the road. They gave up 93 at FSU and gave up 104 at N.C. State. I expect UNC to put up a huge number, especially considering they average 91.6 at home as is. The Tar heels should put up an offensive pace that Tech just can’t keep up with.
