3* CBB No Doubt Rout on Virginia Tech +
Florida State vs. Virginia Tech,
02/24/2013 18:00 EDT,
Score: 70 - 80
Point Spread: +1½/-110 Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech is a great ball handling team averaging just 12 turnovers per game on their home court. The Florida State Seminoles have struggled against good ball handling teams and they are 1-7 ATS against teams committing less than 14 turnovers per game after the 15 game mark in the season.
There is no doubt that Florida State is the biggest flop in the ACC. The Seminoles do not play the kind of physical basketball it takes to rank among the top teams in the conference. They average 32 rebounds per game when playing on the road and only 7 of those rebounds come on the offensive end of the court.
It is surprising to see Virginia Tech listed as the underdog in this matchup considering how bad Florida State has looked on the road this season. The Seminoles have averaged 60.7 points per game in conference play which will not be enough to compete with a Virginia Tech team scoring 71.9 points per game on their home court. In head to head history between these teams the underdog is 4-1 the last 5 meetings.
