Virginia Tech is a good team in the ACC this season but they aren’t great. They can score and will put the pressure on the Eagles.
Boston College has proven they can take down giants on their home floor. If they want to stay on the bubble they have to beat some more good teams. This one is a must get.
Virginia Tech Hokies
The Hokies can score. They average 85ppg and are second in the nation in FG% at 52%. That is pretty amazing given they are not shy about taking long ones.
There is probably no next level talent on this team but they do share the ball. Five players score between 11 and 15ppg and all are capable of hitting outside shots. When the ball is moving they are tough to guard.
Kerry Blackshear is a beast inside at 6’10” 260 and even he is a credible threat from deep. He leads the team in rebounds and blocks and makes a three every other game so you have to guard him a little.
Road wins mean a lot in the end of season evaluations.
This is a spot where the Hokies have a great shot to get one of those. They are likely the favorite too.
Boston College Eagles
The only way the Eagles get on the bubble is if they keep beating teams at home. They have lost just once in Chestnut Hill all season and lucky for them good teams do visit.
Jerome Robinson is fourth in the ACC in scoring this season. He has been able to keep up his production even though the rest of the team has gotten a lot better around him.
Steffon Mitchell is not going to make any all freshman team but he has become an important contributor for BC. He leads the team in rebounding and blocked shots and is very active.
He has a bright future.
Ky Bowman with Robinson are super productive. They are a small duo so they can be exploited sometimes but they put up points and Bowman averages almost 7 rebounds per game.
If he starts shooting better this team can be a real sleeper.

Free Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Boston College Eagles NCAAB Prediction:
Given that they have done it before Boston College should not be discounted on their home floor. The gap here is not huge in terms of talent.
Virginia Tech is just 3-3 ATS on the road this season. They might be inflated off a road win over Notre Dame, a team that is down right now.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Virginia Tech -2.5
Taking a wait and see here. If you get more than +7 I would go with the home dogs but if the Hokies are favoured in a close one go with the more consistent team.
