VT has lost their last five games vs the spread, which means nothing since our goal is to beat them outright. That said, this game will be a huge gauge to tell how well the team is playing against better teams. I'm pretty excited to see.

I expected 7.5 open based on Ken Pom ((EM of 22.51- EM 16.51)* Pace of .66 + HC of 3.5). We have playing well so I would not be surprised to see it slide down a bit from opening and maybe end up nearer to 6.

Thanks for explaining how to use KP to estimate spreads. Can you spell out how to calculate the expected pace between two teams?

V-Tech is #3 nationally (almost 50%) at 'deep state' zone-busting. So oddsmakers think it's a bad matchup for us (shooters Hill, Robinson and Outlaw are seniors). I say we run an anti-chucking scheme - plant our perimeter guys 2-3 feet past the line and let them drive.

I just use the free data on the main page.

Pace is the "AdjT" stat... so coming into this game, Virginia Tech was 65.3 per game and Syracuse was 66.9 possessions. So the average is 66, and I divide by 100, since the EM is based on 100 possessions.
