Virginia Cavaliers Football

The Cavaliers had a weird year in 2020, going 5-1 at Scott Stadium in Charlottesville but winless in all four road contests.

Oddsmakers are expecting a similar season, setting the win total for head coach Bronco Mendenhall’s squad at six games. Read more about the Cavaliers for 2021, including their odds, full schedule, against-the-spread (ATS) performance, team trends and more.

Virginia Cavaliers Point Spreads

While their overall record was nothing to write home about, the Cavs were one of the best teams in the country against the spread with a 70% cover rate. Betting on the spread is a common way to bet on college football, and it involves betting against a sportsbook prediction of the margin of victory. It could look like this:

  • Virginia +7.5 (-110)
  • North Carolina -7.5 (-110)

Virginia is an underdog here, denoted by the plus sign, while the Tar Heels are the favorites, shown by the minus sign. As long as the underdog loses by less than the spread (or wins outright), they “cover,” which means bets on them win. North Carolina would have to win by more than the spread, in this case eight or more points, for bets to win.

Virginia Cavaliers Over/Unders

When you aren’t confident in which team will win the game but are expecting a shootout, you could bet the over on an over/under bet. This was a good idea for Cavs bettors, with the over hitting 70% of the time last season.

Over/under, or totals, bets are wagers on the total scoring in a game. As an example, with a 60-point total in Virginia's game against North Carolina, the 44-41 final score means the over won. It didn't matter which team did the scoring, just that the sum of the points was over the total set by sportsbooks. In this case, had the scores added up to exactly 60, both over and under bettors would have been refunded their bets.

Virginia Cavaliers Moneylines

A simpler bet one can make on the Cavs is a moneyline bet. With a moneyline bet, the Cavs (or their opponent) win the bet if they win the game, whether it’s a blowout or a nail-biter.

The odds can get slightly confusing, but if you think in terms of a $100 bet they make more sense. If the Cavaliers are +250 underdogs, a $100 bet profits $250. If they are -250 favorites, a $250 bet yields $100 in profit. Just like with spread bets, underdogs get a plus sign and favorites get a minus sign.

Virginia Cavaliers Props

Betting on player props is a great way to get some additional action on the Cavaliers. Player props are over/unders bets on the stats of a certain player.

Some Cavs props examples could be RB Wayne Taulapapa's rushing yards, QB Brennan Armstrong's passing TDs, or WR Billy Kemp's receptions.

Virginia Cavaliers Futures

At +5000 odds, the futures market doesn't think the Cavs have a great shot at taking the ACC from Clemson. With pricing similar to moneylines, futures bets are bets on the outcome of the entire season. You could bet on the Cavs to win the ACC, win more or less than a certain number of games, or on players' chances of winning various awards.
