Syracuse leaned heavily on the production of Tyus Battle and he responded with a game high 21 points with three yanks on 8-15 from the floor and three long balls. The Orange received ten points each from Frank Howard and Oshae Brissett  with Brissett hauling in eleven rebounds on 7-19 from the field. 

The #8 Virginia Cavaliers have rattled off six straight victories and improved to 3-0 in the ACC with a 61-49 victory as a 4.5 point favorite. The defense first Cavaliers saw held the Tar Heels to just 21 second half points and limited a dangerous offense to 29.6% from the floor  which made their own 45.3% accuracy a winning effort.

Virginia received 16 points and seven assists from Devon Hall on 6-8 from the floor including a 4-4 mark from beyond the arc. De’Andre Hunter gave the Cavaliers ten points and seven rebounds on 4-8 accuracy while Ty Jerome and Kyle Guy netted eight and seven points respectively while grabbing a combined six boards with seven assists.

Over is 22-6-1 in Syracuse last 29 road games and over is 18-6-2 in Syracuse last 26 vs. Atlantic Coast and Syracuse are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games. UVA are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall. Virginia are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. Atlantic Coast and under is 26-10-1 in Virginia last 37 vs. Atlantic Coast.

It’s a bit strange seeing Syracuse as such a large underdog and right or wrong I’m taking a the points…
