The Demon Deacons are fresh off a 92-78 win over Boston College in which they covered as a 12.5-point favorite on Tuesday in the first round of the ACC tournament. They've now won four in a row both on the hardwood and against the spread, and are 4-1 both SU and ATS over their last five games entering play today.
The Hokies are well aware of the Demon Deacons' potential, as they fell 89-84 at home as a 1-point favorite to Wake Forest in their final regular season game of the year. That loss snapped a three-game winning streak for Virginia Tech, which is 5-2 over its last seven games. The Hokies are also 6-3-1 against the spread over their last 10 contests.
OUR PREDICTION: The over is the best play on the board. It has cashed in all seven of the last seven meetings between these two teams, is 7-2 in the Hokies' last nine games versus a team with a winning record, and is 8-3-1 in their last 12 games played at a neutral site. On the other side, the over is also 9-0 in the Demon Deacons' last nine games when playing a team with a win percentage greater than .600, is 13-3-1 in their last 17 games coming off a win, and is 14-2 in their last 16 conference games.
