Virginia Cavaliers | ACC (Coastal)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+3000), Win Conference (+22500)
SSA Model Pick: None
With all the success Bronco Mendenhall had at BYU, you’d expect Virginia to be in a better position going into Mendenhall’s third season. However, this team has struggled and while the defense should be improved, this offense will once again have trouble finding the end zone. The Cavaliers are picked last in the Coastal.

Win Total Analysis
5 wins (-110/-110)
SSA Model Pick: Under (Low Confidence)
Virginia made it to a bowl last year but our model is predicting them to regress this year. Games against Duke, North Carolina, and Georgia Tech could have easily gone the other way last season. Additionally, Virginia ranks 12th in the conference in talent and will struggle to keep up with ACC opponents physically. A losing season is in-store for the Cavaliers.
