Duke vs. Louisville College Basketball Prediction
With the way both teams have played of late, I’m not touching the spread. The total, however, looks like a better option. The over is 7-2 in the Blue Devils’ last nine games as a road underdog, is 17-7-1 in their last 25 games overall and has cashed in seven of their last 10 games as an underdog. The over is also 15-7 in Duke’s last 22 games following an ATS loss and is 9-1-1 in its last 11 games played on Saturday.
On the other side, the over is 4-0 in the Cardinals’ last four games overall, is 4-0 in their last four games as a favorite and is 9-3-1 in their last 13 home games when facing an opponent with a road winning percentage of less than .400. The over is also 8-3 in the Cardinals’ last 11 games following an ATS loss.
