Syracuse vs. Virginia Tech Prediction and Pick

Both teams are inside KenPom top 20 in offensive efficiency and I expect them to thrive on Saturday night. While Virginia Tech is the better defense, I can't see them getting many stops against a Cuse offense that is 20th in three-point percentage and also 32nd in field goal percentage at the rim.

Meanwhile, Cuse's 2-3 zone won't be able to hold up against the Hokies perimeter attack that has the second best three-point percentage in the country. Storm Murphy has struggled against lanky defenses at time this season, but the Orange don't pressure the ball at all and the Hokies offense can place Keve Aluma in the middle of the zone to pass the ball around.

Both teams have plenty of shooting, but also keep an eye on how each defends the rim. Neither team has a rim protector, especially after the Orange lost big man Jesse Edwards this week for the season. Both units are outside the top 250 in field goal percentage allowed at the rim.

While the possessions may be low, Va. Tech plays at one of the slowest tempos in the country, I expect both teams to score at will in what should be a back and forth affair. Look for all the guards to rain down from the perimeter and each team to break 70 points with ease.

LEAN: Over 146.5
