Keytaon Thompson and Dontayvion Wicks have combined for 954 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns, while Lavel Davis Jr. has 15 receptions.

The Hurricanes are 7-17 ATS in their last 24 games in October and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Cavaliers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 22-8-2 in Hurricanes last 32 road games. The under is 6-1-1 in Cavaliers last 8 games overall. The Hurricanes are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The underdog is 15-3 ATS in their last 18 meetings.

The Virginia Cavaliers aren’t a good football team, to say the least, as their offensive production has been a massive disappointment. However, there’s no way in hell I’m laying chalk with the Miami Hurricanes on the road. Miami has quarterback issues, cant run the ball, struggles against the pass, and we’ve seen the Canes lose to Middle Tennessee and last week to Duke at home. Miami has massively underachieved this season, and a loss here would surprise nobody. Give me Virginia at home and the points.
