The under is 8-3 in Virginia's last 11 road games. Louisville is 9-4-1 against the spread in their last 14 home games. The over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The home team is 5-2-1 against the spread in the last 8 meetings.

Louisville is 9-1 at home this season and there is no reason to believe in this game it’s going to change. Look for Louisville’s offense to find enough offensive success to come away with a cover of the spread. Back Louisville against the spread. In terms of the total, i expect this is going to be an up tempo game that goes over the low total.
