Louisville @ Virginia (-10) — The Cavaliers are back home after a win at Duke on Saturday and normally I’d be worried about an unfocused effort. The thing is that Tony Bennett doesn’t allow that to happen to his team. De’Andre Hunter is a gametime decision for tonight due to the ankle injury and I have a feeling that they will try really hard to hold him out. Mamadi Diakite and Devon Hall were both dealing with the flu this week but are both likely to play. The Hoos have dominated the Cardinals as of late. UVA has held Louisville to 59 or fewer points in their last six meetings. This is essentially a worse roster then those previous teams too and they downgraded at head coach. Both of these teams have seven wins against the spread. I think it could be close to start but UVA inches past this spread. In some ways, I’ll be more impressed with this win then a lot of the others considering Hunter’s injury, the guys dealing with the flu and having to overcome the hype after the Duke win. Virginia 65, Louisville 52

Virginia Tech (-2.5) @ Boston College — The Hokies have won two straight and four of their last six entering tonight at Chestnut Hill. Boston College knocked off Duke at their place and have arguably one of the best backcourts in the conference in Ky Bowman and Jerome Robinson. They will give Virginia Tech fits especially since this defense has had it’s issues. The Eagles have won 11 of their last 14 at home in this series although they did fall 91-75 to Tech last year in Chestnut Hill. No offense, but they gave up way too many points to Notre Dame in South Bend considering the Irish were without Bonzie Colson and Matt Farrell. They cannot afford to lose this game for their NCAA Tournament resume. The team needs to not lose these type of games and needs to another quality win or two. I think they struggle tonight, but I think they get the win. Virginia Tech 78, Boston College 75
