The Virginia Tech Hokies and Pitt Panthers face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at the Peterson Events Center. When these two teams faced off in February of 2021 it was Pitt that came away with the 83-72 victory.
Virginia Tech comes into this game with a 12-10 record overall and they have gone 11-11 against the spread. In the last game against Georgia Tech, the offense was elite scoring 81 points and that led to the 15 point victory. Virginia Tech is averaging 70.5 points while their defense is giving up 62.3 points per game. Keve Aluma has been the top player for Virginia Tech averaging 15.6 points while shooting 51.9 percent from the field
On the other side of this matchup is the Pitt Panthers who sit with an 8-14 record overall and they have gone 11-11 against the spread. This is a Pitt team that has mostly been a disappointment this season and in the last game against Wake Forest they gave up 91 points. Pitt is averaging 62.1 points while their defense is giving up 66.3 points per game. John Hugley has been the top player for Pitt averaging 15.3 points while shooting 44.7 percent from the field and 16.1 percent from behind the three point line.
Pitt is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games. The over is 5-0 in Virginia Tech’s last five games. The over is 5-1 in Pitt’s last six home games against a team with a losing road record. The under is 5-1 in Pitt’s last six games after allowing more than 90 points in their previous games. The over is 4-1 in the Hokies last five games following an against the spread win.
Pitt’s offense has been better as of late, and their offensive success is going to help push this game total higher The over is 5-0 in Virginia Tech’s last five games and that trend will move to 6-0 in this one. I expect this game is going to be higher-paced, and that will lead to this game going well over the total. Back the over.
