Virginia Tech Hokies at North Carolina Tar Heels

The Virginia Tech Hokies travel to Chapel Hill to play the North Carolina Tar Heels in a very important ACC match-up.  The line in the game is a ckem with the total set at 140.  Virginia Tech has played some good basketball recently winning their last six games after starting the season at 4-4.  Virginia Tech has an unimpressive 4-6 record against the spread this year.  North Carolina is riding a four game win streak into this game.  North Carolina holds a record of 11-4 while being 5-7 against the spread.  Both teams are a mirror image of each other coming into this game with modest winning streaks, which makes it no surprise that the line is a pickem.

North Carolina and Virginia Tech split their two regular season match-ups a year ago, each winning at home.  The Tar Heels covered as nine-point favorites, 78-64, with the Hokies pushing their four-point line in a 74-70 victory. Both games finished ‘under’ the total.

North Carolina owns a 60-13 all-time lead in the series, winning 23 of the last 26 meetings between the two schools, and 27 of 32 at home.  I believe that North Carolina past dominance will help North Carolina squeak out a victory at home in this game.  Most smart sports bettors will know that Virginia Tech’s last four games went “under”.  This game should be no different.  Ill go with North Carolina and the under in a parlay.  Im not betting the game or the under straight.  Im just sticking to my parlay in this game.
