ACC Showdown: Virginia at
Virginia Cavaliers (18-7 SU, 3-6 ATS away) will be on the road this Tuesday
evening, but it won’t be easy for them, as they are forced to face the Miami
Florida Hurricanes (21-3 SU, 9-2 ATS home), who are ranked number 2 in the

have forecasted the home team to be laying the chalk in this one and the
NCAA Basketball odds agree, as Miami Florida is listed as -7 point favorites, which
could be good news for bettors siding with the Hurricanes given their stellar

is holding opponents to 54 points per game, but they have actually eclipsed the
total in their last five games played on the road.
Meanwhile, the Miami Hurricanes owns the 25th ranked defense in the nation, as they
are giving up fewer than 59 points per game (58.7). The results have translated
into six of their last nine games played at home to stay under the posted
total, as well as 13 of its last 19 overall.
Cavaliers have been a poor road team against the spread, as they are only
3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 games during their travels, but the away team is
5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings between Virginia and Miami Florida.
boasting a sensational ATS record at home, the Hurricanes area 12-0 SU in
conference play and have covered the point spread in 8 of its last 9 following
an ATS loss. Furthermore, they are 19-7-2 ATS in their last 28 games overall.
Hurricanes lead the series 9-5 over Virginia, while the Cavaliers are winless
in its last five trips to Miami. The Hurricanes are playing as good or better
than any team in the country, and while this is an ACC rivalry matchup, and
Virginia is a very good team, I expect they will have a tough time of it
playing on the road tonight against Miami Florida.
When it comes to making your NCAA Basketball picks, lay
the -7 points with Miami Florida in this one, as they will win straight up and
cover the point spread in the process.
