Score: 48 - 68
Point Spread: -9/-105 Virginia
Today's FREE winner is Virginia over George Mason.
At 7-1, Virginia's "D" is stifling, holding opponents to a mere 47.9 PPG. They have already beat up on Drexel, Drake, and Michigan, covering all three contests. As a matter of fact, the Cavalier's are 4-1 ATS on the season. Mike Smith is the ACC's active leader in career points, rebounds, and DDs. The senior Forward is averaging 15.9 PPG, 10.0 RPG, and is shooting 56.8% from the field. Having Joe Harris doesn't hurt either. The Guard is posting 12.6 PPG. They face a George Mason squad that is 6-2 on the season but just 2-4 ATS. They lost outright to Florida International as a 12-point favorite and just came off of a 65-53 win over Towson. Trust me, the game was a lot closer than the score. Vertrail Vaughns missed 14 straight three-point attempts against Towson. What will the Patriots do against a real defense? If Michigan couldn't penetrate the Virginia "D", George Mason will have a truly long night. The Patriots are 0-4 ATS their L4 games played on the road, 2-6 ATS their L8 games played vs. the ACC, and 2-5 ATS their L7 overall. The Cavaliers are 4-0 ATS their L4 games played as a favorite, 4-0 ATS their L4 non-Conference games, and 19-7 their L26 games played overall. Take Virginia. Thank you.
