College Basketball Betting Trends


The Hurricanes are 6-15 ATS in their last 21 Wednesday games. Miami is 1-3-1 ATS in its last five neutral site games.

Virginia Tech

The Hokies are 4-0 ATS in their last four neutral site games. Virginia Tech is 1-5 ATS in its last six Wednesday games.


Considering Miami played yesterday and will have the tired legs, it's hard not to like the Hokies here. Virginia Tech has the eighth-ranked offense nationally in terms of adjusted offensive efficiency and should have little issue scoring against a Hurricanes squad ranked only 101st in adjusted defensive efficiency. Look for a similar result as Friday night when the Hokies could have won by more had it not eased off the gas pedal in the second half.
