Betting on the Virginia Cavaliers

The Virginia Cavaliers are one of the main collegiate sporting attractions in the state as the one of the two Power 5 programs. Legally betting on the ACC’s Cavaliers in Virginia is an intriguing attraction for residents. 

Overall, Virginia has 5 conference titles with a record of 675-618-48. New leader Tony Elliott is the current coach for Virginia. The Cavaliers are coming off a 6-6 record in 2021. They haven’t won a bowl game since the Belk Bowl in 2018. 

Virginia plays in Charlottesville at Scott Stadium. The Cavaliers have had 11 consensus All-Americans during the program’s history. 

The program began play in 1887 as an independent and they were declared champions of the South numerous times through 1908. 

Virginia joined its current conference, the ACC, in 1954. It was an uphill climb for the Cavaliers, as it took 12 seasons for them to finish above fourth in the ACC. 

The hiring of head coach George Welsh in 1982 was a turning point for Virginia. During Welsh’s third season at the helm, Virginia finished runner-up in the ACC and defeated Purdue in the Peach Bowl. 

Virginia won 10 games for the first time in program history to capture its first conference title in over a half century in 1989. In 1990, Virginia sat as the No. 1 team in the nation for three weeks. Virginia also claimed a share of the ACC title in 1995, which is their latest conference crown. 

Overall, Virginia made 12 bowl appearances and finished ranked as high as No. 15 during Welsh’s 18 years as head coach. 

After Welsh, Virginia has yet to win another New Year’s Six bowl, most recently losing to Florida in the 2019 Orange Bowl. 

Virginia’s main foe is in-state ACC rival Virginia Tech. Virginia Tech leads the all-time series 60-38-5. Virginia’s last win in the series came in 2019 at home in a narrow 39-30 contest that decided the Coastal division. 

A popular way to bet on this contest would be to use the total for combined points scored. This means that if the betting line is 45 points, Virginia and Virginia Tech would have to score a combined 46 points for the OVER to convert a successful bet. 

Notable Virginia players who made it to the NFL include Tiki Barber, Ronde Barber, Chris Long, D’Brickashaw Ferguson, Heath Miller, Patrick Kerney, Thomas Jones, Aaron Brooks, James Farrior and Herman Moore. 

Betting on the Virginia Cavaliers in Virginia

Betting on the Cavaliers at retail sportsbooks in casinos has been legal since January 2021. As of now, Virginia is an online-only betting market. Virginia is slated to open casinos later in 2022 and 2023, so that could signal the beginning of hosting sportsbooks. 

The legal sports betting market in Virginia is especially active during the Cavaliers’ season. With plenty of thrilling ACC contests on the docket, including the annual game vs. Virginia Tech, there should be a ton of action on the Cavaliers.
