The Virginia Cavaliers and Virginia Tech Hokies will go head-to-head in the ACC battle Wednesday night.
Tony Bennett’s team remains one of the best defensive units in the country, but it has some questionable losses to James Madison and the Navy during the season.
As for the Hokies, they lost their first two games of the game at the ACC, but they were able to take advantage of an attack that fell short of Virginia, which ranks outside the top 100 in effective goal percentage.
The following is Odds for this match via WynnBET:
The total is a bit too low for my liking but don’t expect this game to be a repulsive introduction by any imagination.
Virginia is 13th in the nation in opponent points per game (58.8) and the Hokies are 12th with 58.7.
On top of that, the Cavaliers average just 63.3 points per game (ranked 304 in the country) and 114th in effective goalscoring rate. The Hokies are the dominant offensive team, but I think Virginia forces this to be a defensive battle on its home turf.
Virginia Tech isn’t exactly the epitome of a major offense, ranking 168 in points per game, but it shoots 38% more from outside the arc.
If you can beat this Virginia defense, it’s from outside the arc, as opponents are shooting 34.6% from deep ahead of the Cavaliers this season. If Virginia Tech goes on to defend a good 3 (the opponent has only shot 26.9 percent this season), then I think this will upset you.
Lean: Virginia Tech Moneyline (+100)
