Virginia Tech Hokies vs Texas Longhorns Predictions 3/18/2022

 

Texas finished fourth in the Big 12 regular season with a 10-8 record. TCU knocked them out of the conference tournament in the first round 65-60, but they had a strong enough resume to earn an at-large berth.

 

Texas dominated TCU 40-22 at halftime in that game and is coming off a three-game losing run heading into the NCAA Tournament. 

 

The defense is the team’s strength, as they rank 13th in modified efficiency and ninth in scoring defense, allowing 59.5 points per game to opponents. In terms of modified offensive efficiency, they rank 33rd. Three seniors lead the team with 12.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 1.2 steals per game.

 

Timmy Allen tops the team with 12.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 1.2 steals per game. Marcus Carr tops the club with 3.2 assists per game and scores 10.9 points per game, while Andrew Jones scores 10.7 points per game.

 

  • The University of Texas Longhorns is 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Texas’ last 6 matches.
  • Texas is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 matches in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

#11 Virginia Tech Hokies vs #6 Texas Longhorns. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #11 Virginia Tech Hokies. Texas enters this game with little good momentum, after dropping their last three games by a combined score of 63 points or less in each of those defeats.

 

With 13 wins in their last 15 matches, the Hokies are rising at the right time. They’ve also scored more than 70 points in six of their last seven matches, making them a difficult matchup for a Texas squad that struggled to score against strong defenses this season.

 

The Longhorns also lost their previous six matches against the spread, and they are 0-8 ATS in their last eight matches as a favorite in the NCAA Tournament. In my bracket, I have Virginia Tech making it all the way to the Elite-8. I’ll take the Hokies. The Virginia Tech Hokies will win to a predicted score of 64-60.
