Virginia Cavaliers vs Florida State Seminoles College Basketball Las Vegas Odds and Free Sports Picks

Before Atlantic Coast Conference play started, Florida State was 11-1, ranked in the Top 25 and seemed like a lock for an NCAA Tournament bid this year.

But after a 6-5 start in ACC play, a slip from the Top 25 and inconsistent performances, the Seminoles (17-6 overall) now find themselves being a bubble team as the end of the regular season draws near.

There's still, however, time to stamp their resume with a signature win. And that chance comes Wednesday night.

Enter No. 2 Virginia.

The Cavaliers (22-1, 11-0) sit alone atop the ACC standings, a full three games ahead of second place No. 16 Clemson (19-4, 8-3). Virginia also enters Wednesday's game at Florida State on a 14-game winning streak, but the Cavs also know that the Donald L. Tucker Center in Tallahassee is as hard a place as any in the ACC to win.

The Seminoles are 10-1 this year in Tallahassee, where Florida State has won 32 of its last 33 games.

Florida State is coming off a big win this past Saturday that boosted its NCAA Tournament resume when the Seminoles avenged an earlier loss to Louisville -- the team that snapped their 29-game home win streak back on Jan. 11. But the Seminoles beat the Cardinals 80-76 on Saturday to move up to sixth in the ACC standings.

Hamilton knows that a win on the road against Louisville was no easy task. And playing the second-ranked Cavs at home will be even harder.

Florida State has three players averaging double figures, led by guard Terance Mann. Mann averages a team-best 15.5 points and 5.9 rebounds a game, followed by fellow guard Braian Angola (14.1 ppg) and forward Phil Cofer (13.4 ppg).

Virginia is led by guard Kyle Guy, who -- like Mann -- is also averaging 15.5 points a game. Cavs guard Devon Hall is second on the team with an average of 12.1 points per game, while forward Isaiah Wilkins leads the team with 6.7 rebounds a game on average.

After Virginia, the Seminoles have six regular-season ACC games left -- three away, three at home. The final slate of conference games begins Saturday at Notre Dame and ends March 3 at home against Boston College.

As for the Cavaliers, their final regular-season stretch also features six more games, beginning Saturday at home against Virginia Tech and wrapping up March 3 at home against Notre Dame.
