The No. 15 Virginia Tech Hokies take on the Miami Hurricanes with ACC tournament seeding on the line. A win and a Florida State loss get Virginia Tech the No. 4 seed and the all-important double bye. For Miami, it's a chance to play spoiler on Virginia Tech's Senior Night.


The Hokies are ​9.5-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, and handled the Hurricanes earlier this season by a score of 82-70 at Miami. But since it's March and the madness is right around the corner, it means that anything can happen on any given night. With that in mind, let's see what a few industry experts are predicting in this one.


Miami vs Virginia Tech Predictions


TheSpread.com

Derek Patrick, of TheSpread.com, likes the Hokies to both win and cover on Friday night, pointing to their top-10 offensive efficiency. Against a Miami team that isn't in the top 100 in defense, Virginia Tech should have no issues running up the score.

Cappers Picks

Tyler Berry, of Cappers Picks, also has Virginia Tech winning and covering fairly easily, with a projected final score of 78-64. He's confident in Virginia Tech's offense and is going off the fact that the Hokies won by 12 when they played at Miami.

Tony's Picks

Tony Tellez is rolling with the Hokies as well, picking them to win and cover the spread. Virginia Tech has covered in six of its last seven matchups with Miami and the motivation of a better seed in the ACC Tournament should be enough to assure the Hokies don't have a letdown game.

ESPN Basketball Power Index

ESPN's BPI completes the clean sweep giving Virginia Tech a 93.0 percent chance to beat the Hurricanes in the final regular season game for both teams.


That's all four experts picking Virginia Tech to win and all three against-the-spread picks siding with the Hokies to cover the spread.
