Wake Forest is averaging 71.2 points and they are shooting 42.4 percent while defensively they are allowing 70.7 points and their opponents are shooting 44.1 percent.

Virginia is 13-3-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, 17-8-1 against the spread in their last 26 home games, and 1-4 against the spread against the ACC. Wake Forest is 6-1 against the spread following a win, 9-19 against the spread in their last 28 road games, and 9-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record. The home team has covered the point spread in the last four meetings of these two.
This is a ton of points and with Anderson out I like Virginia to keep on winning but I am less than confident they cover the big number.
