NCAA Basketball Odds – Boston College Eagles to Stay Perfect on the Road, Cover versus Virginia Tech Hokies
Written by North Shore Sports, Inc.
The NCAA basketball odds for this week are posted at Bookmaker Sportsbook, and today, we’re taking a look at this tilt between teams in the ACC, as the Boston College Eagles and the Virginia Tech Hokies get it on this Sunday night.
The Boston College Eagles (8-16, 11-7 ATS) and the Virginia Tech Hokies (13-10, 6-12 ATS) are set to tango on Sunday, February 12th at 6:00 ET from Cassel Coliseum in Blacksburg, VA. We’re breaking down the NCAA basketball odds for this clash, which can be seen live on ESPNU.
If the Hokies think that they have any shot at making the NCAA Tournament this year, this is a game in which they must beat the NCAA basketball betting odds.
V-Tech has had a miserable time scoring points in conference games, and it hasn’t scored more than 68 in a clash since the calendar turned to 2012. Don’t let that 67.3 points per game average fool you; the Hokies are averaging just 60.5 points per game in the ACC this year.
This isn’t a particularly deep team either. Head Coach Seth Greenberg gets almost half of his scoring from his backcourt of Erick Green, Dorenzo Hudson, and Jarell Eddie. All three are good for double digits worth of points per game, and when any of the three aren’t at their best, the Hokies tend to struggle on the NCAA basketball wagering odds.
If you thought Virginia Tech’s offense was bad, just check out what the Eagles have to work with this year! They are only averaging 59.5 points per game, and they don’t have a single player on the squad averaging more than the 9.6 points per game that Ryan Anderson is contributing.
That being said, Boston College did top the Florida State Seminoles in shocking fashion in Chestnut Hill on Wednesday night. It was the type of win that perhaps we should have seen coming, especially after the Eagles were able to challenge the NC State Wolfpack and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in games that came right down to the wire last week.
Keep a close eye on three point shooting in this one. The Eagles knocked down 10 triples against FSU on Wednesday. In this one though, if they are going to beat the NCAA basketball gambling odds, they are going to have to make long range shots against a V-Tech team that ranks #1 in the land in defending the three; the Hokies are allowing teams to convert on just 26.1 percent of their shots from downtown.
NCAA Basketball Odds Prediction – Virginia Tech has already been beaten by these Eagles once this year, losing on the road in Chestnut Hill. However, matters get worse for the Hokies. The Eagles have covered three in a row and are 5-0 ATS this season on the road. We’ll have to back BC on Sunday night, knowing that we are once again going to be getting a healthy amount of points.
