Virginia Tech faces Florida State on Saturday, January 29th, 2022 at the Donald L. Tucker Center for a college basketball ACC matchup. 

Virginia Tech is coming off a 78-75 loss to Miami in its last game at home on January 26th. Virginia Tech was a sizable favorite in that game but lost at the buzzer to make it three straight losses for the Hokies. Virginia Tech was a team projected to make a lot of noise in the ACC this year but for the most part, this team has fallen flat. Virginia Tech is now right at .500 overall this season at 10-10 and a measly 2-7 in ACC play. Virginia Tech is 9-11 against the spread this season as well. Virginia Tech's leading scorer so far this season has been F Keve Aluma, who has scored 15.8 points per game. F Justyn Mutts leads the team in rebounds per game (7.4) and assists per game (3.1). Virginia Tech as a team has scored 69.3 points per game and has shot the ball at a 46.4% clip from the field. Virginia Tech has also allowed 61.6 points per game to its opponents. 

Florida State is coming off a 75-61 loss to Georgia Tech in its last game on the road on January 26th. Despite it being a road game, it was a bad loss for a Florida State team that is only 10 days removed from upsetting Duke in overtime. Florida State's win streak was snapped with the loss and the Seminoles are now 13-6 overall this season and 6-3 in ACC play. Florida State has not been a great cover team, owning an 8-11 against the spread record. Florida State's leading scorer so far this season has been G Caleb Mills, who has scored 13.4 points per game for the Seminoles. F Malik Osborne leads the team in rebounds per game with 6.9 and G Ray'Quan Evans leads the team in assists per game with 2.9. Florida State as a team has scored 72.9 points per game and has shot the ball at a 44.8% clip from the field. Florida State has also allowed 68.8 points per game to its opponents.

Florida State is a 2-point favorite and the total is set at 132.5. I was not impressed by Florida State's most recent performance and overall this has been a very inconsistent FSU team. Virginia Tech is in must-win mode and I like its chances to get a strong road win here. Virginia Tech's defense should keep it in this game and I think perimeter shooting will be the difference, which I have to like VT's chances.
