College Basketball Betting Odds:
Virginia Tech Hokies
The Hokies step into this evening’s matchup sporting a 14-1 record. Since they’re 3-0 in conference play this season, Virginia Tech is currently tied with Virginia for the lead in the ACC. Naturally this makes tonight’s matchup of massive importance for both sides. However, it’s pretty clear that tonight’s college basketball betting odds are sticking with the Cavs all the way. This was largely influenced by the fact that VTech is 3-7 in their last 10 meetings against Virginia. On top of that, the Cavaliers enter with the better defense. Right now the Cavs are giving up 51.2 per game while the Hokies are allotting 57.3. Granted Virginia Tech does bring the better offense into this matchup, seeing as how they’re averaging 79.2 per game while Virginia is putting up 73.8.
Players to Watch: Nickeil Alexander-Walker (17.8 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 3.6 apg), Kerry Blackshear Jr. (14.1 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 1.7 apg), and Justin Robinson (13.1 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 5.8 apg).
The Cavs step into this evening’s contest flaunting an undefeated 15-0 record. Needless to say, Virginia is one of the hottest teams in the nation at the moment. Notwithstanding that statement, Virginia will surely be put to the test in the coming days. Tonight they’ll be facing off against No. 9 Virginia Tech and in a couple of days, they’ll have to face No. 1 Duke on the road. Needless to say, a win tonight would be massive for Virginia. Granted, Virginia has already triumphed over 3 nationally ranked opponents including then ranked No. 9 Florida State. With that in mind, we can at the very least expect the Cavs to handle the Hokies at home this evening.
Players to Watch: Kyle Guy (15.3 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 2.2 apg), De’Andre Hunter (14.0 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 2.1 apg), and Ty Jerome (13.1 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 4.4 apg).
