The Coastal is living up to preseason predictions that it would be a hyper-close battle for top spot. If you are considering betting on this close title race these sportsbooks have the best options for high bet limits even if our beloved Georgia Tech are all but eliminated. At 4-2, UVA has a half-game lead over Pitt (3-2) and a one-game lead on Miami (3-3) and UNC (3-3). Yet, that lead is actually bigger than it appears. UVA only has two games left. They are against the Ga Tech (2-6 overall) and Va Tech (5-3 overall). The Hoos will be sizable favorites in both games, and thanks to a head-to-head win over Pitt in Week 1, are guaranteed the Coastal crown if they win out.
