Pittsburgh vs Virginia Prediction

The Pittsburgh Panthers have put together a nice little winning stretch, they're good defensively, and they've had success on the road. I considered the points here. However, the Virginia Cavaliers are one of the hotter teams in all of college basketball, the offense has picked up, and they're 6-3-1 ATS in their last 10 games. I'd need an extra bucket to pull the trigger on Pitt. The line is reasonable. Give me the Cavs.
