Free NCAA Football Pick: Virginia Cavaliers +11

The Virginia Cavaliers have been very impressive to start the season as they rank inside the top 25, and they will be hungry to prove their worth against a very good Notre Dame team. The Fighting Irish played a hard-fought game against the Georgia Bulldogs before running out of gas, but I am led to believe that they will be in hangover mode against the Cavaliers. Virginia has been amazing on the defensive side of the ball this season as they rank inside the top 30 in points allowed, and they should keep this game close against the Fighting Irish as they have been one-dimensional for the most part with their pass game. Final Score Prediction, Notre Dame Fighting Irish win but fail to cover ATS 30-21.
