Can No. 18 Virginia stop the bleeding today when it hits the road to face N.C. State at Noon ET?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Virginia is favored on the road, as the Cavaliers are getting odds of -7.5 points against N.C. State. The over/under total for the game is listed at 131.5 points. Virginia has won four straight over N.C. State, but the two haven’t met this year. The Wolfpack have covered the spread in five of the last seven meetings.

Virginia has been a hot mess the last few weeks and really struggling on offense. N.C. State isn’t a team to believe in much, but they still have the ability to score right now behind the play of Smith. Due to Virginia’s offensive struggles right now, I don’t trust them to win by 8 points, especially on the road.
