These two teams have the same record but the fact that UVA is a favorite on the road speaks volumes.
Wake Forest has found things difficult this season. Their only win was against FCS Campbell.
Virginia beat Duke. They have not had any gimmes this season.
Virginia is looking to break up a two game losing streak. After beating Duke they have lost to Clemson and NC State. Only by 18 at Clemson which is actually solid.
Getting things on track is going to be tough with QB Brennan Armstrong questionable due to concussion symptoms. Junior Lindell Stoe looked pretty good last week though.
All Stone did was throw for 240 yards and three touchdowns in relief. Bryce Perkins was an awesome dual threat last season, but they have been able to throw the ball well this year.
The defense is doing alright in terms of yards allowed but less so with points. 33ppg allowed is going to make it tough to win in a lot of spots.
Virginia needs this win or it might be November until they get another one. Maybe the QB situation is bringing down the number more than it should.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
Hard to really know what Wake is this season. They have also lost to Clemson, again respectfully and played a close game against NC State for whipping Campbell.
They scored 66 points against the FCS team so you have to take their numbers with a grain of salt given we only have three data points.
QB Sam Hartman is not putting up huge numbers this season. He has not thrown an interception though and that could be the difference in a close game.
The defense can be better, though UVA is no offensive juggernaut. Against ACC opponents the Demon Deacons have given up 37 and 45 points.

I think there is value on th UVA side, even though you have to give a few points on the road.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Virginia -2.5
Couple of keys are Wake probably getting more of a boost than is deserved for whacking an FCS team and UVA getting docked for a couple of losses in a row.
I like coach Bronco Mendenhall to have his troops ready. His guys usually win the games they are supposed to.
