Best Bet of the Day
NCAAB: Miami Hurricanes +2 over Virginia Tech Hokies
7:00 pm ET, ESPNU
After a convincing home win over Wake Forest, the Miami Hurricanes (22-5, 13-4) head back on the road to take on the Virginia Tech Hokies (16-11, 6-10). The Hurricanes have won 6 straight games – a winning streak that started against the Hokies in Coral Gables – and have been electric offensively as of late. The Hokies have one of the worst defenses in the ACC, ranking 11th in efficiency and 10th in effective field-goal percentage. When these teams met earlier this season, Miami put up 92 points on Virginia Tech with just 11 turnovers. With the ACC regular season title on the line, this should be a focused spot for the Hurricanes. Read our full Miami vs Virginia Tech predictions.
