The Monarchs are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall.

The under is 4-1 in Cavaliers last 5 games overall.
It's hard to figure out which version of the Old Dominion Monarchs is real, the team that upset Virginia Tech or lost to East Carolina. We do know the Virginia Cavaliers are a decent squad with a proven quarterback, and they'll be eager for a bounce back showing after dropping the ball last week against Illinois. This is a bad spot for ODU, as Virginia will be motivated to redeem itself. At home, I'll lay the reasonable number with the Cavs.
