The Virginia Cavaliers and Virginia Tech Hokies face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at the Cassell Coliseum. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Virginia vs Virginia Tech prediction.

Virginia Needs This Win

Virginia was able to pick up a two point over Wake Forest in the last game, but they can’t follow that up by taking a step back with a loss here. Against Wake Forest, Virginia allowed them to only shoot 34.5 percent from the field and 23.8 percent from behind the three point line. Virginia on the season is averaging 65 points while their defense is giving up 57.9 percent from the field. The offense is ranked 346th while the defense is ranked 3rd. This is a good defensive team but the offense needs to be more consistent. Reece Beekman is averaging 14.2 points while shooting 45.9 percent from the field and 31.2 percent from behind the three point line.

How Does Virginia Tech Bounce Back? 

Virginia Tech in the last game scored 81 points against North Carolina, but that wasn’t anywhere close to good enough as the defense gave up 96 points. MJ Collins was the top player for Virginia Tech putting up 18 points, three rebounds, and three assists. The Hokies on the season is averaging 74.6 points while their defense is giving up 70.7 points per game. The offense is ranked 164th and they are going to need the offense to find a way to get going here. Sean Pedulla has been the top player averaging 15.5 points while 39.9 percent from the field and 35.2 percent from behind the three point line. 

Virginia vs Virginia Tech Betting Prediction


What Virginia’s defense did in the last game against an elite Wake Forest offense was impressive and they are going to step up again in this game with the defense. Virginia’s defense is giving up only 57.9 points and they are going to really put on a show on that side of the ball. The offense might not have the best offensive game of the season, but they are going to score enough to get the job done. Back Virginia against the spread.
