NCAAB Betting: Virginia Tech vs Virginia

Virginia Cavaliers Malcolm Brogdon

The Virginia Cavaliers have been excelling in just about every aspect of the game so far in the college hoops season, and next up on the docket is a road tilt against state rival Virginia Tech. Virginia has had no trouble with the Hokies in the past, dispatching them in each of the last seven times they’ve collided.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in six of Virginia's last eight games after an ATS win.
  • Virginia Tech is 5-2 SU in its last seven games.
  • The total has gone OVER in six of Virginia Tech's last eight games after losing their previous game.

The Cavaliers rank eighth in Division I in scoring defense and 13th in three-point shooting in the nation en route to collecting 12 consecutive wins. The recent emergence of 7-foot bench center Mike Tobey has given this club a different look lately, with the big man scoring a season-high 16 points against Oakland on Wednesday and 15 in Saturday’s conference-opener against Notre Dame.

Virginia's stifling defense has led to the UNDER becoming a profitable bet as of late, as five out of the Cavaliers' previous seven games have gone below the closing total.
