College Basketball Betting Trends

Georgia Tech

The Yellow Jackets are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games. Georgia Tech is 26-10-1 ATS in its last 37 Wednesday games.

Virginia

The Cavaliers are 4-0 ATS in their last four Wednesday games. Virginia is 11-4 ATS in its last 15 ACC games.

Prediction:

The Cavaliers haven't been blowing teams out like they were earlier in the season or this spread would be bigger. But the Yellow Jackets are also the worst team Virginia has faced in a month. I think this is one of those contests where the Cavs show their dominance on the defense end and ease to a win, picking up right where they left off after the second half at Louisville.
