4-1 Virginia hits the road for a matchup with North Carolina Saturday at 3:30. The Hoos opened up as a 2.5 point favorite with the line flying up to 3.5 right now. Let’s take a look at some gambling trends in this contest:
- UVA is 8-3 ATS the last three seasons on the road (2-10 straight up)
- They’ve gone under in 11 of their last 17 ACC games.
- UNC has covered just once this season.
- 15 of the last 20 lined games in this series have gone under the total.
It seems really easy to take the Cavaliers in this one, but can you trust them? They keep passing tests week after week, but something is still nagging about this contest. With all of the injuries that the Tar Heels sustained, they should be ripe for another loss. They’ve been gashed by the Irish and Yellow Jackets the last two weeks. Can a team that has struggled with consistency pick up another win in a winnable road game? I’m sitting this one out, but will probably kick myself when Virginia wins easily.
