Can Miami end VA Tech's home ATS streak?
Miami can assure itself of at least a share of the ACC regular season title with a win over Virginia Tech today at 4:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Hurricanes are a 6.5-point road favorite versus the Hokies after the line opened at Miami -6. Virginia Tech is 17-13 overall and 12-5 at home, while Miami is 24-5 overall and 18-9 against the spread this season.
The Canes won't have Ja'Quan Newton today but his absence hasn't been an issue in Miami's last two games, wins over Louisville and Notre Dame. The team has had at least three scorers in double-digits in the last three games that Newton has missed as Miami's coaching staff has done a fanstic job putting together a balanced rotation.
The Hurricanes have covered in five of their last six games and are 20-6-1 against the number in their last 27 games coming off a win. The Hokies have covered in eight straight home games but that streak ends today against a Miami team gaining momentum heading into the postseason.
