The Louisville Cardinals and Syracuse Orange face off on Saturday in an ACC college basketball showdown at the Carrier Dome. When these two teams last faced off in February of 2020 it was Syracuse that won 90-66. 

Louisville comes into this game with an 11-11 record and they have gone 6-15-1 against the spread. In the last game against North Carolina, the defense gave up 90 points and that led to the seven point defeat. The Cardinals are averaging 69 points while their defense is giving up 69 points per game. Malik Williams has been the top player for Louisville averaging 10 points while shooting 47.8 percent from the field and 32.8 percent from behind the three point line. One big issue for this team is they don’t have a star player that they can lean on. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Syracuse Orange who sit with an 11-11 record and they have gone 11-11 against the spread. The Orange have won two games in a row, including the last game against NC State where they scored 89 points. Syracuse is averaging 77.8 points while their defense is giving up 75.5 points per game. Buddy Boeheim has been the top player for Syracuse averaging 19.3 points while shooting 40.6 percent from the field and 34.1 percent from behind the three point line. There are five different players that are averaging at least 12.3 points per game.

Louisville is 3-12-1 against the spread in their last 16 games. Louisville is 0-4-1 against the spread in their last five road games. The under is 6-1 in Louisville’s last seven games following a straight up loss. The over is 3-0-1 in Louisville’s last four road games against a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600.

Syracuse is an elite offensive team and Louisville just doesn’t have the scorers to keep up. I’m not sure Syracuse is going to reach 89 points again in this game, but they are going to score at least 80 points and that is going to be the difference in this game. Back Syracuse to cover the spread.
