Texas Tech vs Virginia Final March Madness Betting Analysis

Team of destiny or not, Virginia only allows 55.5 points per game, ranking first in college hoops, meaning they’ve got a shot to win the National Championship. However, there’s a stat that could end the Cavaliers’ hopes at lifting the trophy.

Virginia shoots 39.3% from behind the arc. Their three-point shooting is the main reason they’ve made it so far in the tournament. Without their three-point shooting, UVA’s a normal team on offense. That’s where the problem lies.

Texas Tech has been awesome against the three-point shot in the NCAA Tournament. Michigan shot 5% from three versus the Red Raiders while both Gonzaga and Michigan State shot less than 30%. That makes Texas Tech a bad matchup for the Cavaliers. The Red Raiders should win by around 6 to 7 points on April 8. They’ll take the National Championship Trophy back to Lubbock.
