UNDER Trending Between Noles-Cavaliers

The 11th-ranked Virginia Cavaliers continue their surge for March Madness Sunday in Tallahassee when they take on the Florida State Seminoles. If you’re a college hoops totals bettor, don’t sleep on this stat: the UNDER is a perfect 9-0 in the last nine times the schools have gotten together in Florida.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 5-0 in the Seminoles last 5 Sunday games.
  • The home team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings between the Seminoles and Cavaliers.
  • The Seminoles are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win.

The Cavs also hold the edge in this series at the betting window, covering the closing spread in four of their last five against the ‘Noles.

Virginia snapped its two-game slide against Miami on Tuesday, which was notable only because it was the first time in over three years the Cavaliers lost two in a row to Atlantic Coast Conference opponents prior to the contest.

Tonight’s game will likely be a matchup of offense vs. defense, as Florida State ranks third in conference games in scoring (77.3) while Virginia is giving up just 65.5 points per game, the third fewest mark in the ACC.
