VIRGINIA over Indiana by 3
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.
