College Basketball Betting Trends
North Carolina A&T
The over is 14-5 in the last 19 Aggies non-conference games. North Carolina A&T is 10-4 ATS in its last 14 non-conference games.
The Hokies are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games. Virginia Tech is 7-2 ATS in its last nine games overall.
Virginia Tech has beaten up on some lousy opponents this season and also topped a few top-100 squads. With such a huge spread against a lowly opponent today, I'm thinking Va. Tech rests up a bit as they get ready for the holidays. Expect the Hokies to win big, but not quite by 30.
