The Florida State Seminoles and Virginia Cavaliers face off on Saturday in an ACC college basketball showdown at John Paul Jones Arena. When these two teams faced in February of 2021 it was Florida State that won 81-60.
Florida State comes into this game with a 14-13 record and they have gone 8-18-1 against the spread. This has been an awful season for Florida State, and in the last game against Boston College the offense only scored 55 points and that led to the defeat. Florida State is averaging 71 points while their defense is giving up 71.3 points per game. Caleb Mills has been the top player for Florida State averaging 12.7 points while shooting 43 percent from the field and 37.2 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Virginia Cavaliers who sit with a 17-11 record and they have gone 14-13-1 against the spread. Virginia is right on the bubble in terms of the NCAA tournament, and a loss in this game would be very bad for their chances. In the last game against Duke, Virginia was competitive, but they fell apart the last few minutes, and were defeated by four points. Virginia is averaging 63.4 points while their defense is giving up 60.3 points per game. Jayden Gardner is the best player for Virginia averaging 15.3 points while shooting 51.5 percent from the field and 30 percent from deep.
Virginia is 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five home games. Florida State is 0-6-1 against the spread in their last seven games following an against the spread loss. Florida State is 0-4 against the spread in their last four games against a team with a winning straight up record. The over is 4-1 in Virginia’s last five games played on Saturday.
Virginia is a strong defensive team, and Florida State’s offense has been inconsistent all season. I expect Florida State to finish under 60 points, and this game is going to get out of hand early. Back Virginia to come away with an easy cover of the spread.
