Against The Spread Pick
Virginia Tech will need a lot to go their way if they want to take down the #11th-ranked Louisville Cardinals at KFC Yum! Center. The Hokies have lost all momentum if any as they have lost three-straight games, along with eight of the last 10 overall. Louisville finds itself with a real chance to move ahead of Duke and Florida State in the ACC race, as both have already lost this weekend. Virginia Tech is 1-10 ATS in its last 11 games. The Cardinals have won each of their last seven games at home. The Hokies haven’t beaten the Cardinals before and along with an 0-6 record they have failed to cover in each of the last three head-to-heads. Taking Louisville at home to cover 12.5 points is a good play.
Over Under Pick
Lousiville has scored an average of 80.33 points per game in the last three head-to-head meetings against Virginia Tech. While the Hokies have an average of 72.67 points per game in that same span. Each of the last three clashes has resulted in over 135 point totals. Therefore a play on an over 134.5-point total is a smart move.
