College Basketball Odds
Florida State -3.5
Total: 147.5 points
Both Florida State and Louisville could have gotten caught looking ahead to this game, but both survived tests earlier this week. Louisville blew out Clemson at home, Florida State narrowly beat a solid Notre Dame team.
The total in this one shows Florida State and Louisville might play a faster game than expected, especially based on the Cardinals dominant defense. Each of these teams rank inside the Top 25 in adjusted defensive numbers, the Seminoles are just high enough offensively to give them an edge here. The Noles average just over 86 points per game this season and they are led by sophomore guard Dwayne Bacon and his 17.4 points per game.
Louisville is going to make Florida State work on every possession. The Cardinals have length and athleticism all over the court, but they are going to have to find a way to win without Quentin Snider. He’s a major factor for the Cardinals and without them, they have to get some strong play from the role guys.
Florida State has just two losses on the season, neither of them came at home as the Noles are 13-0 in home games. This could be a grueling game, though, as they are playing a sixth-straight ranked opponent.
