Virginia giving too many points to Tech?
No. 4 Virginia looks for a bit of revenge today when it face Georgia Tech at 7PM ET on ESPN.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Virginia is favored big in this game, as the Cavaliers are getting odds of -10 points against Georgia Tech. The over/under total for the game is listed at 128 points. These two meet in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament, which takes place from the Verizon Center in Washington D.C.
Virginia is 24-6 overall, 13-5 in the ACC, 4-0 on a neutral floor and 15-13 against the spread. Georgia Tech is 19-13 overall, 9-10 in ACC games, 2-1 on a neutral court and 17-12-1 against the spread. Georgia Tech actually won the lone meeting this season, 68-64 at home as a 6-point underdog. However, Virginia is 8-2 against the spread in the last 10 games of this series.
Georgia Tech rallied on Wednesday night to beat Clemson in OT. The Jackets have now won six of their last seven and are 5-2 against the spread in that stretch. Virginia has certainly been hot as well, winning and covering in eight of its last 10. However, Virginia giving up double digits is concerning. The Cavaliers are known for defense and low-scoring games, not blowing opponents out of the water. Virginia is just 2-6 ATS in its last 8 as a double-digit favorite. With Tech somewhat hot, look for them to keep the game within reach.
