Virginia Tech Hokies
The Hokies are having just an O.K. season.
VT is 14-6 on the season, but their 5-4 conference record has them only fifth in the ACC. That’s right: Four of the Hokies’ six losses this season are in conference.
Per KenPom: Their 74th-ranked adjusted offense and their 75th-ranked adjusted defense has them at 66th in the nation in total adjusted efficiency.
Some more interesting Hokie stats, per KenPom: They play at one of the slowest adjusted tempos in the nation (320th overall), but the Hokies make the most of their opportunities, as they also turn over the ball at the 4th-lowest rate in the nation. It’s also worth noting they have one of the worst offensive rebounding rates in the nation (312th), and they take the 7th-most 3PA/FGA in the nation.
However, the Hokies just dropped a home game to Syracuse and an away game to Boston College, both as favorites. They managed to beat UNC at home, but only by two after being favored by seven. It’s been a rough stretch for VT.
What a curious basketball team the Miami Hurricanes have.
The U are 39th in adjusted offense, and have three players scoring about 15 points/game. But while they score a lot, they have almost the worst assist rate in the league, as their A/FGM rate sits at 349th (out of 355) in the nation.
Moreover, their defense is really bad. 244th in the nation in adjusted defense, and their 75 PA/GM falls outside the top-300. They are allowing an effective FG% against of 52%, which is pretty damn bad.
Not to mention the fact that the Hurricanes have dropped four straight games, and now sit at 10-9 overall and 2-7 in conference play. That conference record has them dead last in the ACC.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Over is 6-2 in VT last 8 Tuesday games.
- Over is 11-1 in MIA last 12 Tuesday games.
- Over is 9-4 in MIA last 13 home games.
Free Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Miami Hurricanes NCAAB Prediction:
When Virginia Tech goes on the road against Miami, the total goes Under. It has in 11 of their last 15 total meetings, and five of the last six meetings at BankUnited Center. It’s just a thing.
However, I don’t believe this trend will hold up on Tuesday night.
Miami just gave up 94 points to North Carolina. Do you know how bad North Carolina is? The Over has hit in three straight Miami games and their defense is one of the worst in the nation.
Meanwhile, the Over has hit in three of Virginia Tech’s last four games, and they’re probably looking to bounce back after scoring only 56 against Boston College (who, by the way, have a way better defense than Miami).
The previous matchups don’t show this, but I firmly believe that the recent performance of these two teams and their overall season metrics points toward the Over. Expect the Hokies to score a bunch on this god-awful defense and Miami to drop just enough points to top the total.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Over 140.
