Louisville vs. Boston College Prediction
I’m on Louisville here. Backing Louisville on the road hasn’t been the most profitable venture so far this season, but the Cardinals have been a lot more competitive as of late and I just think this is simply a case of too many points as Louisville hasn’t been THAT bad in recent games. Maybe it’s a fade of Boston College and this number more than anything else, but I’ll back Louisville with the points here.
