College Basketball Betting Trends

Virginia Tech

The Hokies are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games. Virginia Tech is 0-4 ATS in its last four Wednesday games.

Miami

The Hurricanes are 2-7 ATS in their last seven games versus the ACC. Miami is 1-6 ATS in its last seven Wednesday games.

Prediction:

The Hurricanes have been fairly competitive in most of their conference home games and I don't expect this to be an exception against a Virginia Tech team that has struggled lately on the road. The Hokies are not a great defensive team, so being at home Miami should be able to find enough baskets to keep this close and stay within the number.
