Wednesday night ACC action will see the unranked (yes you read that right) Virginia Cavaliers take on the 9th ranked Florida State Seminoles.
The Cavaliers come into this game really struggling and have actually lost two games in a row. They started ACC play 3-0, but now are 3-2. They just lost to Syracuse by a score of 63-55 in overtime.
Virginia might honestly be one of the worst offensive teams in the entire country. In fact, they average 55.7 points per game. This ranks 351st in the country. For one, it is hard to be that bad at scoring the ball. I know they lost a ton of talent from last years team, but it is just ridiculous how bad their offense really is.
They also shoot just 39.9% from the field and 26.8% from the three-point line hence their struggles to actually put the ball in the basket.
Also, their leading scorer averages just 12.9 points and therefore Virginia does not have anyone who can take over a game.
Unlike the offense, the defense is by far the best in the country. They are allowing just 48.7 points per game. To go along with that, they allow teams to shoot just 34.6% from the field, also the best in the country.
Most people would think that defense like this would lead to more scoring, but when the Cavs cannot make a shot, it leaves the door open for their opponent. Now playing on the road is going to be even tougher, where Virginia averages just 47 points per game. They will need more than good defense to slow down a high powered Seminoles team.
Florida State Seminoles
The Seminoles are red-hot right now, winning their last seven games in a row. Their only blemish in ACC play was in the very first game of the season when they lost to Pittsburgh by 2. They are clearly a much better team now, which is why they are ranked inside the top 10.
The Seminoles most recently beat Wake Forest by a score of 78-68. They will need the same intensity in this game if they want to hand the Cavs their third consecutive loss.
Florida State’s offense is averaging 76.4 points per game this year. This only ranks them inside the top 75, but they have shown the ability to score in the 80’s in needed. Two of their guys average 12.2 points per game, which is tied for the highest on the team.
Defensively, the Seminoles are a very solid team overall. They allow just 63.4 points per game. Teams shoot just 39.3% against them, so they should be able to slow down this Cavs anemic offense.
Luckily they are going up against an offense that is horrible, so their main focus needs to be on scoring more than 70.
CBB Betting Trends:
- UVA are 2-11 ATS in their last 13 games overall.
Free Virginia Cavaliers vs. Florida State Seminoles NCAAB Prediction:
Even though the Cavs have an elite defense, the Seminoles are a much better scoring team at home and I think they are easily going to win this game.
This total is set extremely low, but with how Florida State can score, I look for the over to be the play.
