Featured Game | Virginia Cavaliers vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons
Why Wake Forest can cover
Wake Forest has been dominant on both sides of the ball early on this season. The Demon Deacons have outscored opposing teams by an average of 26 points through three games, and their defense has been just as impressive. Wake Forest’s nine takeaways rank second in the country. While the visitors have only played at home this season, they’ve also performed at a high level at Scott Stadium in recent years.
Wake Forest is 6-1 against the spread in its last seven road games against Virginia. The Demon Deacons have won the previous four matchups by an average of more than 10 points. There’s no reason to believe that the underdogs can’t keep their hot streak going against the Cavaliers.
Why Virginia can cover
Few teams have scored like the Cavaliers this year. Virginia is averaging 43.1 points per game. Only three teams have more total yards than Virginia this season, and Brennan Armstrong’s passing has a lot to do with that. The signal-caller has tallied 1,298 passing yards and 11 passing touchdowns with two interceptions. His production through the air gives the Cavaliers a shot to beat any team.
Virginia led No. 21 North Carolina by four points on the road last week before falling behind in the second half in a blowout loss. The Cavaliers have won their home games by an average of 35.5 points per game, though. They’ve only conceded 14 points at Scott Stadium through two games this season.
