The Hurricanes are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six Tuesday games. The road team is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings.
The Cardinals are 5-1 ATS in their last six Tuesday games. Louisville is 15-5 ATS in its last 20 games following a double-digit loss at home.
The Cardinals are solid both offensively and defensively with a go-to scorer in Nwora who comes in red-hot after his scorching performance in the loss over the weekend. Louisville is going to be a bit salty and let's not forget this squad was once ranked No. 1 in the country. These two squads met in the season opener at Miami with the Cardinals securing an 87-74 win. Add a point to that margin at home and you have yourself a cover.
