Louisville is 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games. The over is 5-2 in Louisville’s last 7 Saturday games. Florida State is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games and 0-8-1 ATS in their last 9 Saturday games. The over is 20-6-1 in Florida State’s last 27 Saturday games. The road team is 5-2-1 ATS in these two teams last 8 meetings.
Florida State could not buy a bucket in their last game and it showed as they got blown out. Louisville has played well to start conference play, but has three very close wins in their last three games. I think this game could go either way, but I am taking the over in this matchup.
