Georgia Tech vs. Virginia - 1/18/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Georgia Tech took a 2-0 lead to start the game but did not score over the next 7 minutes, 44 seconds, as Virginia grabbed an 8-2 lead following a Hunter field goal with 12:27 left before halftime. Hall also leads the team with 3.4 assists per night. Overall, the Jackets turned over the ball 18 times.

Virginia Tech's meeting against Notre Dame will be one of the upcoming season's marquee non-conference matchups involving programs from the ACC, which will also feature Louisville facing reigning national champion Alabama on September 1 in Orlando, Fla, Miami playing Louisiana State on September 2 in Arlington, Texas, Clemson at Texas A&M on September 8, Central Florida at North Carolina on September 15, Pitt at Central Florida on September 29, SC at Clemson on November 24 and Georgia Tech at Georgia on November 24. Ultimately, it was the difference in the game. He was averaging 18.8 points coming into the game. Virginia was incredibly balanced on offense with four of its players scoring in double-digits and senior forward Isaiah Wilkins also chipping in nine.

Thursday night football returns to Lane Stadium after a one-year hiatus.

While many already saw this as a favorable schedule for the Hokies, the fact that four of VT's final 5 games are in Blacksburg make this an even more favorable schedule.

If you're looking for a possible trap game: there are two candidates at Pittsburgh and Duke. U.Va.'s road games will include trips to IN on September 8, N.C. State on September 29, Duke on October 20, Georgia Tech on November 17 and the game against Virginia Tech. Duke wasn't great last season, but they also don't lose a lot of pieces from that team with David Cutcliffe also at the helm.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will look for a statement win to add to their current 4 game winning streak following a 69-54 victory over Pitt last time out.

Overall, this is about as favorable of a schedule as was imaginable for the Hokies.

The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) released its football schedule on Wednesday, giving University of Louisville fans a chance to mark their calendars for the Cardinals' games.
