College Basketball Odds
Total: 146.5 points
Naturally, we look to the under here as Louisville just doesn’t give up a ton of points, especially when playing at home. ND has won six straight coming into this game and there are a number of scenarios in the ACC that will depend on the outcome of this one.
Louisville can finish anywhere from a tie for first to fifth place. That’s important as each of the Top 4 seeds in the ACC Tournament get double byes. A win by either team basically ensures that, but Louisville has to get the nod here playing at home.
The defense will be key as Notre Dame comes in scoring 79 points per game. Louisville ranks seventh in the country in defensive efficiency numbers and overall they give up just 65 points per game. They’ve played in some recent higher scoring contests, but look for the Cardinals to buckle down here in their final home game.
