Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Virginia Tech Hokies

NCAAB: Wednesday, February 13, 2019, Cassell Coliseum, Blacksburg, Virginia, 8:00 PM ET

The ACC showdown from Cassell Coliseum in Blacksburg, Virginia, will see the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets going against the Virginia Tech Hokies for the second time this season. The Hokies have beaten the Yellow Jackets 52-49 as 7-point favorites in their first head-to-head duel of the season which was their fifth straight victory over Georgia Tech. The Hokies are currently at the 6th spot of the ACC table 2.5 games behind Duke, while the Yellow Jackets are four games behind the Hokies.

The Yellow Jackets will have a tall task to avoid their sixth straight loss

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (11-13; 3-8 Conf.) are on a five-game losing streak following a 69-59 defeat at the Notre Dame Fighting Irish last weekend. It was another poor offensive performance by the Yellow Jackets, failing to surpass a 60-point mark for the fifth time in a row. On the other side, they allowed 25 free throws to Notre Dame which was a crucial factor in their loss, as they limited the Fighting Irish on just 32.8% shooting from the field. The Yellow Jackets are 1-7 straight up and 3-5 ATS in their last eight games overall, while they are 0-4 straight up and 2-2 ATS in their last four outings away from home.

Georgia Tech enters the matchup with the Hokies as a No. 109 at the NCAA NET Rankings and a No. 102 at the latest KenPom rankings. The Yellow Jackets are scoring 98.0 points per 100 possessions (283rd in the country) on 43.8% shooting from the field (212th) and 29.3% from beyond the arc (342nd), allowing just 91.5 points in a return (12th) on 38.9% shooting from the field (13th) and 27.7% from beyond the arc (6th). The sophomore guard Jose Alvarado is leading the Yellow Jackets this season, averaging 11.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game while hitting 37.7% of his field goals. The junior forward James Banks III is posting 10.4 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest, while the freshman guard Michael Devoe is adding 9.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game.

The Hokies need to bounce back off two straight losses

The Virginia Tech Hokies (18-5; 7-4 Conf.) have dropped two games in a row, and after losing to Louisville 72-64 at home, they lost at Clemson 59-51 this past Saturday. The Hokies had a nightmare shooting afternoon at Clemson, hitting just 28.3% of their field goals and will need a much better performance tonight if they want to beat the Yellow Jackets. The Hokies are 4-3 straight up and 3-4 ATS in their last seven games overall, while they are 5-1 straight up and 3-3 ATS in their previous six outings on the home court.

Virginia Tech enters the clash with the Yellow Jackets as a No. 14 at the NCAA NET Rankings and a No. 10 at the latest KenPom rankings. The Hokies are scoring 117.5 points per 100 possessions (11th in the country) on 48.6% shooting from the field (22nd) and 41.5% from beyond the arc (2nd), surrendering 92.9 points in a return (17th) on 40.3% shooting from the field (30th) and 34.0% from downtown (163rd). The sophomore guard Nickeil Alexander-Walker is leading the way for the Hokies with 17.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game. The senior PG Justin Robinson is posting 14.4 points and 5.5 dimes per outing, while the junior forward Kerry Blackshear Jr. is adding 13.3 points and 6.7 rebounds per contest. Robinson is currently sidelined with an ankle injury which is a huge blow for the Hokies.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet

The free-falling Yellow Jackets will try their best, but I think it won’t be enough against the Hokies on the road. Virginia Tech desperately needs to win tonight and keep the pace for the top four spots in the conference. While both these teams play some exceptional defense, the Hokies’ offense looks much better, so I’m backing the hosts to cover even though they will be without their starting PG.

Prediction: Virginia Tech Hokies -12.0 (-110)

Full-Game Total Pick

We’ll see two excellent defensive teams going against each other, while the Hokies play at a very slow pace, recording only 63.7 possessions per 40 minutes (332nd in the country). Therefore, I’m backing the under even though the bookmakers will set a paltry line, for sure. Still, the betting trends are also suggesting the under, especially when the Yellow Jackets are playing.

Prediction: Under 123.5 points (-110)

Full-Game Prop Bet

The Hokies’ last four wins at home came by a double-digit margin, while the Yellow Jackets lost four straight games on the road by 10 or 12 points. I’m already backing the Hokies to cover the spread, but it could be really tight as the stats are suggesting, so I’m taking the hosts within 11 and 15 points, hoping it won’t be a proper blowout.

Prediction: Winning Margin: Virginia Tech Hokies by 11-15 points (+400)

Half-Time Side Pick

The Hokies dropped two games in a row, trailing at halftime on both occasions, but they were leading in the other three of their previous five outings. Also, they were leading at halftime in three of their last five games at home. On the other side, the Yellow Jackets were leading at halftime in three of their last five games on the road including a matchup with Duke, while their last two trails came by six or fewer points. Hereof, I’m going with the visitors to stay close in the first half.

Prediction: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets +7.0 (-110)
