Against the Spread Pick
The Virginia Tech Hokies and Boston College Eagles will be squaring off for the second time in two weeks. They previously faced each other at Boston College on Jan. 25 and the Eagles took care of business in front of their home fans via a 61-56 decision. They are 2-2 in their past four contests, a virtual hot streak by their standards. Virginia Tech, on the other hand, is saddled with a four-game losing streak. This club has lost by at least nine points to its three most recent foes. Leading scorer Landers Nolley II has shot 31.3 percent and 28.6 percent from the floor in the past two outings. Boston College is 4-1 ATS in its last five overall and 4-1 ATS in its last five against opponents with winning percentages over .600. The Hokies are 0-6 ATS in their last six overall, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 at home, and 1-4 ATS in their last five against opponents with losing records. It is also worth noting that the road team is 6-1 ATS in the last seven head-to-head matchups. There is no way the EAGLES should be getting more than a few points, so take the +7 and run.
Over Under Pick
Nolley is not shooting the ball well these days, and Virginia Tech does not have a whole lot of depth behind him so things can go south in a hurry when he goes cold. The previous meeting between these two ACC rivals featured a total of 117 points. The under is 9-4 in the Eagles’ last 13 overall and 10-4-1 in their last 15 against opponents with winning percentages over .600. It is also 5-2 in the Hokies’ last seven against opponents with winning records. Look for this one to stay UNDER the total.
