Virginia has had some slip ups on the road, but the Cavaliers have bounced back well at home. UVA had a 16-point win over Louisville following the loss to Syracuse and a 23-point win over Virginia Tech following a loss at Villanova. The Cavaliers’ defense should give Duke problems and though the Blue Devils have been winning, they have been beating up on some of the lower teams in the ACC for the most part.
