Virginia Tech Hokies
The Virginia Tech Hokies have had an up-and-down season with a 1611 record and a 6-10 record in ACC play. However, they are coming off a strong performance by Grant Basile, who scored 22 points in their victory over the Pittsburgh Panthers. The Hokies have been solid at home this season, going 12-3 in home games. Basile is the team's leading scorer, averaging 16.7 points per game, and he is supported by Sean Pedulla, who is averaging 14.7 points and 3.7 rebounds over the last 10 games.
The matchup between Miami and Virginia Tech should be an interesting one, with Miami coming in as the more highly ranked team, but Virginia Tech having the advantage of playing at home. Miami's high-powered offense will be matched up against Virginia Tech's solid defense, which is allowing only 67.3 points per game. Virginia Tech will need to contain Wong and Miller, while Miami will need to watch out for Basile and Pedulla.
Looking at the betting trends for this game, Miami is 6-4 against the spread in their last 10 games, while Virginia Tech is 5-5 against the spread in their last 10 games. The total has gone over in four of Miami's last five games, and it has gone under in five of Virginia Tech's last seven games. Miami is favored by 5.5 points in this matchup.
Based on our analysis and the betting trends, we predict that Miami will cover the spread in this game. While Virginia Tech has been strong at home, Miami's offense is just too potent, and they have been on a roll lately, winning eight of their last 10 games. We expect Wong and Miller to have a big game, and Miami's defense to do enough to contain Basile and Pedulla.
Pick: Miami Hurricanes to cover the spread (-5.5)
