Prediction

Virginia 74, Pittsburgh 60Money line (ML)

PASS because while Virginia (-600) is the right side, but paying that much for a money line is a strategy that is bad. The win that is implied according to a -600 money line is 85.1%, and despite the head-to-head domination, Pittsburgh won a game in the past six meetings against Virginia, which is a 16.7% win rate.Play Our new free daily
