Virginia has lost seven games in a row, including a 45-14 setback to the North Carolina Tar Heels as 11.5-point road underdogs on Nov. 9, while going OVER the betting total in its last six affairs.  The Cavaliers are 5-5 SU all-time against the Hurricanes, which is important to consider when making your college football expert picks in Week 13.  During the program’s three-game winning streak in this series, the team has averaged 437.7 total yards.  Virginia is 3-4 SU and 4-3 ATS as underdogs of 10.5 to 21 points the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 4-3 in that situation.

The Cavaliers are 10-15 SU all-time in stadiums that at the time of the contest were active NFL stadiums, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football odds page.  Virginia has one of the youngest rosters in the nation, as it started the year with just eight seniors, which was tied with UCF for the second-fewest in the country.  Junior running back Kevin Parks is the player to watch on the offensive end, as he’s rushed for 2,239 career yards.

Miami will try to break a three-game losing streak, which includes a 48-30 setback to the Duke Blue Devils as 3.5-point road favorites last Saturday, but it did win the statistical battle by 22 yards in that affair.  The Hurricanes will have 26 seniors playing their final home game in this matchup, including quarterback Stephen Morris who is one of only four 7,000-yard passers in program history.  He has tallied eight 300-yard passing games in his career.  Miami is 6-1 SUATS at home with a betting total between 56.5 and 63 the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 5-2 in those seven opportunities.

The Hurricanes are averaging 34.5 points per game, which has been made possible by 2,782 yards through the air and 1,800 on the ground.  Miami is playing the rest of the season without the services of leading runner Duke Johnson, which places a lot of pressure on backup Dallas Crawford to perform and maintain balance to the team’s offense.

Sports bettors will likely back the Hurricanes due to the Cavaliers being 0-3-1 ATS following a SU loss of more than 20 points.
