College Basketball Betting Trends

Virginia Tech

The Hokies are 5-2 ATS in their last seven Saturday games. Virginia Tech is 1-4 ATS in its last five games following an ATS loss.


Clemson has benefited from a weak schedule lately, but that doesn't mean its defense is not legit. The Tigers have only allowed a total of 79 points the last two games. They'll run into a much stronger offense here and a Hokies team salty after a home loss. With Virginia Tech the only team with NCAA Tournament aspirations here, I feel like the wrong team is faded due to recency bias.
