The Louisville Cardinals currently sit with a 13-5 record overall and they have won two games in a row. In the last game against Duke it took overtime, but the Cardinals were able to come away with the 80-73 victory.

In the last game against Wake Forest, Virginia Tech had no issues winning 84.56.

The over is 6-2 in the last eight meetings played between the two teams. THe underdog is 6-2 against the spread in the last eight meetings played between the two teams. 

When these two teams face off the over has been a strong play and I expect the pace of this play is going to be fast. Look for this game to go well over the total.
