February 21, 2018 NCAA Basketball

It seems like the Virginia Cavaliers are not be the most entertaining team in college basketball.  However, the UVA defense is an elite air tight group that makes the Cavaliers a bona fide threat for the Final Four.  Virginia’s recent Betting Lines NCAA Basketball loss to rival Virginia Tech has not taken away from their stellar reputation.  What is especially relevant is that they are one of the most profitable teams on the board. Georgia Tech is truly a wreck this season.  Most of all they are among the worst teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Matchup to Watch

Maybe Virginia will not be a cheap commodity in this matchup.  But they do bring proven Betting Lines NCAA Basketball value.  Comparatively Georgia Tech offers nothing but frustration.  Neither team brings much offense.  In conclusion the ultimate difference in the game will be Virginia’s dominant defense.
