Virginia Cavaliers 2023 Season Preview

The Virginia Cavaliers' 2023 football season is highly anticipated, but it comes with its share of challenges and expectations. Under head coach Tony Elliott, the team is in the process of rebuilding and refurbishing the program. The 2022 season was a difficult one as the Cavaliers finished with a 3-7 record and faced multiple setbacks, including a tragic on-campus shooting that resulted in the loss of three players. Coach Elliott emphasized the need for the program to move forward while honoring the memory of those affected by the tragedy.

Looking ahead to the 2023 season, the Cavaliers' offense is going through significant changes. Quarterback Brennan Armstrong, who was expected to lead the team, had an underwhelming season and has since transferred to NC State. The new starting quarterback will be Tony Muskett, a transfer from FCS Monmouth. Virginia also lost their top four wide receivers from the previous season, which will put pressure on the offense to find new playmakers. The running back unit is considered a strength, with four solid options, including Clemson transfer Kobe Pace. However, the offensive line is a major question mark and will play a critical role in the team's success.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Cavaliers made significant improvements in 2022 under the guidance of defensive coordinator John Rudzinski. Despite losing some key defensive players, including linebacker Nick Jackson and cornerbacks Anthony Johnson and Fentrell Cypress II, the team returns its entire defensive front and boasts All-ACC candidates in players like Chico Bennett (end), Aaron Faumui (tackle), and safety Antonio Clary. The defense will need to continue its solid performance and provide support as the offense goes through a period of transition.

With a challenging schedule ahead, the Cavaliers will face Tennessee in their opening game on Sept. 2 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee. Winning close games will be crucial for Virginia, and they will look to build on their defensive success while trying to find solutions for their offensive struggles.

While the Virginia Cavaliers may face some hurdles, the program has a history of turning things around under previous head coaches, including Bronco Mendenhall and Al Groh. The team will be striving to improve upon their recent seasons and work towards contention in the ACC.

Virginia Cavaliers Point Spreads

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.

Over/under, or totals, bets are wagers on the total scoring in a game. As an example of a game from the past, 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.

Virginia Cavaliers Futures

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.

How to Bet on the Virginia Cavaliers

Legal Virginia sports betting went live in 2021, and there are plenty of sportsbook options you can choose from to bet on the Virginia Cavaliers.
