Louisville’s defense-first mentality has made them a profitable UNDER bet dating back to last season, as the Cardinals have failed to top the total in six of their past seven outings. Louisville’s man-to-man defense has held opponents to 55.0 points per game so far this season with only one opponent topping the 60-point threshold. Louisville will take on a ranked Baylor squad in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament Friday.
- The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Baylor’s last 9 games against teams with winning records.
- Baylor is 1-3 SU and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against the ACC.
- Louisville is 7-2 SU in their last 9 games against teams with winning records.
Louisville has proven to be resilient during the Battle 4 Atlantis, as they bounced back from a poor showing against Old Dominion, which lasted until 1 AM, to beat an undefeated Wichita State team with just over 12 hours between games. The Cardinals need to work on their shooting, as the team has shot a combined 38-for-116 in their past two games while averaging 65 points.
Baylor has not made their way through the tournament easy on themselves, as they have entered the second half down in each of their past two games before outscoring VCU and Michigan State by a combined 34 points in the final frame. The Bears have already played two ranked teams this season, going 2-0 SU and ATS with an average scoring margin of plus-16.
