Virginia Tech Hokies vs North Carolina Tar Heels 12/29/2021 Picks Predictions Previews

Virginia Tech Hokies vs North Carolina Tar Heels 12/29/2021 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Virginia Tech Hokies of the Atlantic Coast Conference will go against the North Carolina Tar Heels of the Atlantic Coast Conference in NCAAB action in Dean E. Smith Center, North Carolina, on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, at 7:00 PM ET.

 

The traveling Hokies lost three of their previous five games. They upset St. Bonaventure by 37 points at home before heading to Duke last time out for a match that was close in the first half before the Blue Devils pulled back in the second. Mike Young’s Virginia Tech team is well-balanced, with four players generating double digits, topped by Keve Aluma’s 15 points per game.

 

However, anyone could pace the team offensively on any given night, as the team had five different players dominate in scoring, including 10-point scorers Justyn Mutts and Nahiem Alleyne.

 

Junior guard Hunter Cattoor, who averaged 14 points and shot over 63 percent from the three-point range in his previous four matches, is one of the players to watch heading into this contest.

 

The Hokies score 71 points a game on offense, but they are one of the top three-point shooting teams in the country at 39 percent, and they are proficient on offense, placing 31st in efficiency and 56th in effective field-goal percentage.

 

On defense, they are just as good, according to the stats, giving up more than 65 points only twice, both defeats, and holding opponents under 60 nine times. The Hokies are as good at shooting the three as they are defending it, enabling opponents to hit only 25% of their attempts.

 

  • The total went OVER in 4 of Virginia Tech’s last 5 matches.
  • The University of Virginia Tech Hokies is 3-15 SU in their last 18 matches against North Carolina.
  • Virginia Tech is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 matches in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Virginia Tech Hokies vs North Carolina Tar Heels Predictions 12/29/2021

 

UNC is the hotter of the two teams entering into the contest, going 4-1 in their past five matches, but their one was in the revised CBS Sports Classic in Las Vegas. They lost to Kentucky by 29 points. The team also claimed six of their past seven games, including a 21-point victory over No. 24 Michigan.

 

Armando Bacot, a junior forward, is a thorn in Hubert Davis’ side. He tops the club in producing with 15 ppg and rebounding with 9.8 rebounds per game, but he was particularly good recently, recording 12.4 ppg and 9.4 rebounds in his previous 7 games.

 

Brady Manek, Caleb Love, R.J. Davis, and Dawson Garcia are the other 4 Tar Heels in double digits for a squad that averages 78 ppg and shoots 39% from outside the arc.

 

The Tar Heels defense is outstanding throughout their recent winning streak, allowing only 56 points per game in their previous six games. It’s time to find out who the ACC’s second-best team is, and each of these squads can make a case.

 

While the individual duel between Aluma and Bacot will be entertaining to watch, I believe the game will be decided on the three-point line. Virginia Tech makes 22 attempts per game, while UNC averages 19, and despite the fact that they both shoot 39%, the long ball accounts for roughly 37% of the Hokies’ offense, compared to only 29% for the Tar Heels.

 

  • The University of North Carolina Tar Heels is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 11 of North Carolina’s last 15 matches against Virginia Tech.
  • North Carolina is 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 matches in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Virginia Tech Hokies vs North Carolina Tar Heels. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Virginia Tech Hokies. Both teams will attempt three-pointers, but I believe Virginia Tech’s ability to guard the three with Mutts and Aluma limiting UNC’s frontcourt will give the Hokies a narrow victory. The Virginia Tech Hokies will win to a predicted score of 72-68.
