According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Louisville is the slight favorite at home, as the Cardinals are getting odds of -1 point against North Carolina. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 148.5 points.

North Carolina is 19-2 on the season and 8-0 in the ACC, but the Heels haven’t faced a ranked opponent yet in a conference game, let alone on the road. Louisville (17-4, 6-2 ACC) is coming off a surprising 63-47 loss at home to Virginia, snapped a four-game win streak. Still, the Cardinals are a favorite at home today despite being just 2-6 against the spread in ACC games this season.

North Carolina isn’t exactly setting the world on fire at the betting window, going just 3-5 ATS in ACC play. The Heels find themselves as an underdog for the first time this season, but they are just 5-8 ATS as an underdog since 2013. Louisville has fared well against UNC over recent history, covering in two of three meetings last season. Louisville is also 5-3 ATS in its last eight against the Heels. Coming off such a bad loss at home, expect a motivated effort from Louisville tonight.
