College Basketball Betting Trends

Florida State

The Seminoles are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 Tuesday games. Florida State is 3-7 ATS in its last 10 games following a straight up win.


The Cavaliers are 1-5 ATS in their last six home games. The home team is 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings.


The Seminoles have not exactly played great their last two games, but found a way to the win. Now they get an offensively deprived Virginia squad that is still very nasty defensively, currently ranked second nationally in adjusted efficiency. The Cavaliers have lost four of six games this month with the only wins being against Georgia Tech and Wake Forest. I'd rather take the more consistent team here and the one I can trust to get a basket in a tight game down the stretch.
