This is a monster Monday nighter in the ACC. The Cavs and Canes are tied for second place in the league, just a game behind UNC.
Virginia has struggled in the league on the road this season so this will be a test. They beat Miami by 8 at home this season.
Miami will be looking to bounce back after a loss to UNC that would have put them in first place.
Virginia bounced back from their last second loss to Duke by pummeling NC State. Now they hit the road where they have suffered all of their losses in the ACC this season.
You would think a strong defensive team like Virginia would travel well but that has not been the case this season. Plus you still have to be able to score enough to win.
UVA is second in points allowed at just under 60ppg. However, their offense is better this season and I don’t think it is just the fact that the shot clock is creating more attempts.
The backcourt of Malcolm Brogdon and London Perantes averages almost 30ppg and they are about as steady as it gets.
Upfront Anthony Gill is one of the most tenacious players in the ACC. He does the dirty work and makes sure this team does not get too cute.
Miami Hurricanes (FL)
The Canes are coming off a loss but prior to that they had been playing really good ball. The game wasn’t close but there is no shame in losing at Chapel Hill.
The Canes have a great shot to win the league but their next two home games are going to test their offensive patience with UVA and Louisville coming to town.
The whole team was off against UNC and if they are not careful they could be dealt another loss by Virginia. They will put pressure on PG Angel Rodriguez to play well.
He might have been the lone bright spot against the Tar Heels and if he plays another good game then the home team will be in good shape.
It is going to take a total effort against the Cavs. I know these teams have the same record but in my mind UVA is the tougher squad to beat.

Free Virginia Cavaliers vs. Miami Hurricanes CBB Prediction:
I am not sure there is a rivalry here but both are somewhat ACC upstarts and they are both right there.
Being at home might be enough of an edge for the Hurricanes to take advantage
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Strong play on OVER, small lean on Miami -1
Look for a clean hard-fought game that is decided late. Neither team will be too far ahead or behind throughout.
