The Virginia Cavaliers finally got their second win of the season Saturday night against the No. 15 North Carolina Tar Heels, improving to 2-4 on the season. But against Las Vegas, the Hoos are 4-2 after covering the +7.5 spread to the Tar Heels.

This week, Virginia opens as a straight pick’em against the 2-5 Louisville Cardinals, who lost 42-35 to Virginia Tech on Saturday.

On the season, Virginia is 4-2 against the spread as follows:

  • -4 vs. Duke (W)
  • +27.5 at Clemson (W)
  • -7 vs. NC State (L)
  • +2.5 vs. Wake Forest (L)
  • +13 at Miami (W)
  • +7.5 vs. North Carolina (W)

Meanwhile, Louisville is 3-4 against the spread. They just missed covering this week, losing by seven when just a 5.5-point underdog.

All-time, Virginia is down on the series, 3-5, including 2-4 since the Cardinals joined the conference in 2014 and the two teams started playing annually. Virginia lost to Louisville last year, 21-28, on the road.
