Point Spread: 13.00 | -122.00 Pittsburgh (Away)
This is a 10* play on the Pitt Panthers.
The Virginia Cavaliers have won four straight since suffering their first loss of the season at Duke on New Years Eve. They haven't blown out anyone during that span, winning by an average margin of just five points in those games. They host a Pitt team that comes off a dominant home win over the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Panthers have won four of their last five, but they are still on the bubble trying to qualify for the tournament. The Cavs haven't been quite as solid on defense without the injured Justin Anderson, and their perimeter shooting has tailed off as well in his absence. The Cavs have shot just 16.2% from three point range over their last three games. I think the home team is asked to cover a few too many points here against a hungry opponent that has been playing well of late.
