My goodness, I thought the Jacksonville defense would show, that sure didn’t happen last night. On to today.
CFB 2* Virginia -10 or less – I went against the Cavaliers last week, but won’t make that mistake this time around. Virginia plays suffocating defense, holding opponents to under 36 percent shooting and also expertly defends the three-point line. If Jim Larranga was still the George Mason coach, I’d give the Patriots a shot, but former Georgia Tech head coach Paul Hewitt is a better recruiter than in-game coach and is working with new team. With Virginia 9-2 ATS after allowing 25 points or less in the first half last game, let’s take the Cavs to win and cover.
NHL 1* Vancouver ML – Eventually I will be burned on these big money lines, but I don’t believe it will be tonight. The Canucks are 10-0-2 against Colorado in last dozen meetings and are playing their best hockey of the season. Here is a rare but strong angle; the Canucks are 12-1 at home after three straight games with 33 or more shots on goal.
