Betting on the Virginia Tech Hokies (odds)
Record: 14-4 Overall / 8-3 Conference
The Hokies got back in the win column after scoring an 80-76 road win last Saturday. The Hokies got tripped up by the Pittsburgh Panthers in an upset 83-72 road loss on Feb. 3, so the win over the Hurricanes at least gives Virginia Tech some sort of a morale boost, heading into the showdown with the Seminoles. Virginia Tech is averaging 72.5 points per game and gives up 65.6 points per contest. Virginia Tech shot 47.6 percent from the field against Miami, and the Hokies have shot 47 percent or better from the floor in two of their last three games. Virginia Tech’s defense should pose some problems for Florida State, as the Hokies are this in the ACC in adjusted defensive efficiency rating, with only 99.7 points allowed per 100 possessions.
The Hokies have failed to cover the spread in both games against the Panthers and the Hurricanes, but they are 5-5 against the spread in their last 10 games.
Betting on the Florida State Seminoles (odds)
Record: 12-3 Overall / 8-2 Conference
The Seminoles are definitely feeling good right now after dealing the No. 1 team in the ACC with a loss. The ‘Noles defeated the Virginia Cavaliers last Monday at home, 81-60. Dropping 80 points on the heads of one of the best defensive teams in the nation speaks volumes about how dangerous this Florida State team is. The Seminoles shot 50 percent from the field against Virginia and went 13 of 24 from deep. Florida State, after all, boasts of the most efficient offense in the ACC, where the ‘Noles are scoring 116.4 points per 100 possessions. In addition, their 58.1 effective field goal percentage is the best in the conference. Virginia Tech should also find it tougher to score inside the arc against Florida State’s defense that limits opponents to only 44.7 2-point shooting percentage.
Florida State is 5-1 against the spread in its last six games at home.
Florida State wins, 75-70.
