Virginia Tech Hokies          

Buzz Williams - Virginia Tech vs. Florid State BasketballThe Hokies step into tonight’s ACC matchup sporting a 22-6 record that includes an 11-5 performance in ACC play. That conference record happens to rank Virginia Tech 4th overall in the conference, tying them alongside Florida State for that position. With that in mind, it’s undoubtedly clear that tonight’s matchup will play a hand in hashing out the ACC standings. So which side gets the edge this evening? Well tonight’s college basketball betting odds are undeniably pegging Florida State as a decisive favorite at home versus No. 15 Virginia Tech.

This is somewhat surprising considering that the Seminoles were recently defeated by No. 8 UNC while the Hokies were upsetting Duke. Additionally, the Hokies come in with a slightly better defense as they’re only giving up 61.5 per game while the Seminoles allot 67.8. However, the Seminoles come in with a slightly better offense as they’re scoring 76.3 while VTech delivers 74.5.

Players to Watch: Nickeil Alexander-Walker (16.4 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 3.8 apg), Kerry Blackshear Jr. (14.9 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 2.0 apg), and Justin Robinson (14.4 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 5.4 apg).
