One of the featured games today has No. 10 Florida State hosting No. 12 Louisville at 2PM ET. Which team has the edge?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Florida State is favored at home, as the Seminoles are getting odds of -3 points against Louisville. The over/under total for the game is listed at 149 points. Louisville has won and covered the spread in both ACC meetings with Florida State.

Bet on Louisville vs. Florida State

Louisville is on a four-game winning streak coming into today to move to 16-3 overall and 4-2 in the ACC. The Cardinals are 3-1 against the spread in this four-game win streak and are now 12-5 against the spread on the season. Louisville averages 76.6 points per game on offense while giving up 62.2 points per game on defense. Their offensive numbers dip to 71.3 points per game on the road. Quentin Snider continues to be out with a hip injury. He averages 12.1 points and 4 assists per game for the Cardinals. Donovan Mitchell is the team leader with 13.8 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.

Florida State is coming off an 83-80 win over Notre Dame this week to improve to 17-2 overall and 5-1 in the ACC. The Seminoles have failed to cover the spread in their last two games and are now 11-6 ATS on the season. However, FSU is 8-3 against the spread at home. Florida State has a great offense, averaging 86.3 points per game while the defense allows 70.9 points per contest. At home, FSU averages 91.5 points per game. Dwayne Bacon is averaging 17.4 points per game to lead the team while Jonathan Isaac is adding 13.1 points and 7.7 rebounds per game.

Louisville isn’t 100 percent with Snider out and I think that is what will make the difference. While Louisville plays good defense, I don’t think the Cardinals will be able to keep FSU in check on the road. FSU has an offense that can be tough to stop and Louisville doesn’t have the horses to match.
