Can Louisville pick up another win and cover at home when they host Indiana today at 2PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Louisville is the clear favorite in this game, as the Cardinals are getting odds of -11 points against Indiana. The over/under total has yet to be set. Today’s game takes place from the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky and will air live on ESPN.
Indiana is coming off a 77-64 win at home over Iowa on Monday to improve to 5-4 on the season. The Hoosiers are just 3-6 against the spread on the year and 0-2 against the spread on the road. Indiana is scoring 75.6 points per game this season while giving up 73.9 per contest. Juwan Morgan is leading the Hoosiers with 13.8 points and 6.3 rebounds per game while Robert Johnson is adding 12.7 points per contest.
Louisville snapped a two-game losing streak earlier this week with an 86-60 win over Siena. The Cardinals are now 5-2 on the season and 2-4 against the spread. The Cards are just 2-3 against the spread at home. Louisville is putting up 78.1 points per game this season while allowing 65.4 per game. Deng Adel is lone player to average double figures in scoring for the Cards. He is putting up 16 points per game. Ray Spalding is adding 9.7 points and 9.1 rebounds per contest.
Louisville has won three straight meetings with Indiana, covering the spread in all three contests. Indiana has struggled on the road, as the Hoosiers are 2-7 ATS in their last nine non-conference contest and 1-4 ATS in their last five against ACC opponents. Louisville is 7-3-1 ATS in its last 11 against the Big Ten and I think the Cardinals build off their win over Siena and get past the Hoosiers with some ease. The public betting is slightly with Louisville at home today and I think the Cardinals will cover.
