Cardinals cruise past Hokies

The Cardinals outscored the Hokies 41-25 in the second half after it went into halftime tied.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Louisville

The Cardinals are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven Saturday games. Louisville is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games as an underdog.

Virginia

The Cavaliers are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games overall. Virginia is 3-1-1 ATS in its last five Saturday games.

Prediction:

Louisville won the previous meeting at home by a count of 80-73 and are highly motivated here as the ACC regular season title is quite an accomplishment in such a talented conference. The Cavaliers still have a shot at a share if they win here and get help elsewhere. While Virginia is on a seven-game win streak, it has mostly come at the hands of some of the weaker teams in the ACC aside from a 52-50 home win over Duke. I think the Cardinals have the right makeup to go on the road and get it done today. The wrong team is favored here in my opinion. Take advantage.
