VIR­GINIA over In­di­ana by 3

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

Like O.J. Simp­son, Bronco Men­den­hall re­ceived good news last week when his troops held Wil­liam & Mary to 240 yards in a 28-10 home win be­hind 3 TD passes from re­turn­ing QB Kurt Benkert. The prob­lem is they were 28-point fa­vorites. None­the­less, a win is a win for the victory-starved Cavs, a pro­gram that posted just TWO vic­to­ries last sea­son. Mean­while, the white Bronco is 15-11-1 ATS as a dog fol­low­ing a win in his coach­ing ca­reer, in­clud­ing an 8-3 spread record com­ing off one win-ex­act. The Hoosiers know they can go toe-to-toe with most teams after lead­ing Ohio State, 14-13, at the half last week be­fore the wheels game off. QB Richard Lagow was 40-for 65 for 410 yards a 3 TDs, but the rush­ing of­fense was a ma­jor downer as Hoosier backs man­aged just 27 yards on 17 car­ries. Cou­ple that with the fact that new coaches are just 22-90 SU and 48-64 ATS on the road in Game Two of the sea­son since 1990 against op­po­nents off a win and we’ll lean to an­other home win by the Cavs.
