Written by on January 30, 2019

16-3 Virginia Tech heads to Miami to battle the Hurricanes in what might be a more competitive game than college hoops handicappers believe. Miami is 9-10 this season. They most likely won’t make the NCAA Tournament. However, the Canes are 7-4 at home.

Will VA Tech assert itself as one of the top teams in the ACC? Or, will the home team add a loss to the Hokies’ record?

Why #11 Virginia Tech are a good bet ATS?

Virginia Tech has been one of the better teams in the ACC this season. The Hokies have beaten Notre Dame, Boston College, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, and Syracuse.

VA Tech’s success rests on one of the top defenses in college basketball. Opponents average less than 62 points per versus the Hokies. Because Virginia Tech scores over 78 per, they should dominate a team like Miami-FL on Wednesday night.

Why Miami-FL Hurricanes a good bet ATS?

Should you bet on Miami in the NCAAB odds?

Miami has a losing record, and they’ve been awful in recent games, but it’s only a matter of time before they get it going. Quality basketball programs like the Miami Hurricanes don’t stay down for too long.

Not only that, but Virginia Tech has lost their last two games on the road. The Canes might be facing VA Tech at the perfect time. If the Hokies don’t bring their “A” game, Miami could at least make them pay against the spread.

Virginia Tech vs Miami Final NCAAB Betting Analysis

It’s true that Virginia Tech lost their last couple of road games. Those road battles were against #3 Virginia and #10 North Carolina. Miami-Florida doesn’t come close to being as talented as either one of those squads.

The Hurricanes have lost 6-of-7. They’re in dire straits right now. To make matters worse, the Canes could be without center Ebuka Izundu and guard Zach Johnson. Johnson has an ankle injury while Izundu is listed as questionable due to an illness.

With the possibility of 2-of-5 starters missing this contest, Miami doesn’t have much shot of keeping it close. VA Tech rolls to an easy win and cover.
