Line: Virginia -24

Eastern Michigan comes into this game with something to celebrate. They got their first win of the season last week at Ball State 41-38 in overtime. This was their first victory of the season and are 1-6 on the year. They are 1-3 on the road this year. Virginia comes into this matchup with a three game losing streak after losing last week to North Carolina at home 44-10. They are 2-4 on the season and are 2-2 at home.

The Eagles have been horrible on defense allowing 43.4 points a game, 119th worst. Their offense hasn’t faired much better posting 20.9 points a game, 97th worst. They have accumulated a decent amount of passing yards with 187.7 yards a game, 83rd overall. Their rushing game has been a bit better ranking in at 73rd with 143.3 yards a game. If the Eagles hope to stand a chance, they will need Sophomore QB Alex Gillet to continue his strong start to the season. Gillet has 1,082 passing yards with 10 TDs and 6 Ints. He leads the team in rushing with 376 yards and another 3 TDs.

Virginia has been a bit worse than average on defense allowing 24.7 points a game, 64th overall. Their offense will need to step it up as they rank 80th in the nation with 23.5 points a game. The Cavaliers rushing game is 83rd with 132.2 yards a game. Their passing game has been very good posting 252.7 yards a game, 33rd best. QB Marc Verica has been the catalyst for the passing game with 1,286 yards 6 TDs and 6 Ints.

Sports picks are made easy when a team is not doing that great this season. In this case, both teams are not doing that great this season. Virginia does have two victories on the season, but those both were vs Division 2 teams, Virginia Military Institute and Richmond. Eastern Michigan isn’t a great team neither, but getting 24 points should be a huge advantage.
