Virginia Has Been Dominant As Underdogs

Anthony Gill

The Virginia Cavaliers and Miami Hurricanes will do battle Monday as they attempt to climb one step closer to finishing the regular season first in the ACC. Virginia enters the game as a slight underdog, a position they relished, as the Cavaliers are 8-0 ATS in their past eight when being spotted points.

Shark Bites
  • Virginia is 4-0 ATS in their past four games against Miami.
  • Miami is 9-1 SU in their past 10 games following a SU loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in each of Virginia’s past six road game.

Virginia proved why they have one of the best defenses in the country when these two teams met in January, as the Cavaliers held Miami to just 58 points while shooting 27.3 percent from the floor. 

Virginia enters Monday’s affair with wins in eight of their past nine, with the lone loss coming by one point at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Malcolm Brogdon continues to be the consistent offensive threat for Virginia as the senior is fourth in the ACC in scoring with 17.8 points per game.

The Hurricanes will look to extend an 11-game home winning streak, a span that has seen them go 8-2-1 ATS for bettors, on Monday night. However, Miami is coming off an embarrassing loss to UNC that saw them lose by 25 points. That game saw the ‘Canes allow a season-high in points (96) and field goal percentage (54.2).
