The Virginia Cavaliers’ football season is heading in the wrong direction as the Hoos dropped their third straight game of the season, this time to the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. A slow-starting offense and an exposed secondary doomed the Cavaliers despite being favored over the Deacons this past weekend.

The Hoos are 11-point underdogs next weekend to the No. 11 Miami Hurricanes, who are 4-1 with only a loss to top-ranked Clemson.

On the season, Virginia is 1-3 against the spread as follows:

  • -4.5 vs. Duke (W)
  • +27.5 at Clemson (L) (Note: this line was at +28 but had moved to +27.5 just prior to kickoff, so we updated just this week with a L)
  • -7 vs. NC State (L)
  • -2.5 vs. Wake Forest (L)

Miami, on the other hand, is 4-1 against the spread this season, covering all the games in which they’ve been favored, and then getting completely blown out by Clemson.

Virginia is behind all-time on the series against Miami, 7-10, including a 1-3 record under Bronco Mendenhall.

Virginia and Miami will kick off on Saturday, October 24 at 8:00 p.m. ET, once again on the ACC Network.
