Against The Spread Pick
Both the Hokies and Hurricanes will be looking for a very important win in the ACC as Virginia Tech visits Coral Gables for a clash with Miami at Watsco Center. Virginia Tech has rattled off seven wins in their last 10 games, but a pair of losses in their last three games have deterred them in their hunt to stay in the NCAA Tournament race. Miami has lost four-straight games and six of its last seven. The Hokies have covered the spread in eight of their last nine head-to-head meetings with the Hurricanes. Virginia Tech has also won four of the last six head-to-head meetings. Miami has been ice-cold against the spread, covering just twice in their last seven games. It’s tough to win on the road, but taking Virginia Tech to cover 2.5 points has to be on your ticket.
Over Under Pick
Both the Hokies and Hurricanes find themselves averaging around the same amount of points per game this season. Virginia Tech and Miami’s last 10 head-to-head meetings have favored the under six times. Many of the Hokies’ games this season have also leaned in the direction of under totals. Miami has enjoyed over totals in the majority of their games this season. Two of the last three head-to-head meetings finished with totals over 150. That makes backing an over 140-point total worth it in this match-up.
