College Basketball Betting: Virginia Hosts Louisville in Key ACC Showdown
The Virginia Cavaliers (20-1 SU, 13-6 ATS) have actually lost their unbeaten status after dropping a 69-63 choice to Duke (+5.5 away) recently. The Cavs are still in very first location in the Atlantic Coast Conference as we go to push, and this Saturday, they'll attempt to strengthen their position when the Louisville Cardinals (19-3 SU, 8-12 ATS) check out the John Paul Jones Arena. Tip-off is at 7:00 PM ET on ESPN.[button-green url=”https://spreadbetmoney.com/bovada-link” target=”_self” position=”middle”]Bet on College Basketball at Bovada Odds and get a totally free 50% bonus offer.[/button-green]
Just one game separates Virginia and Louisville in the ACC standings, however as you can inform by their ATS records, the “real” space in between the two groups is larger than it might appear. Ken Pomeroy's innovative statistics have the Cavaliers ranked No. 2 total (No. 6 offense, No. 3 defense) in Division I, while the Cardinals are ranked No. 10 (No. 46 offense, No. 6 defense).
The Cavs have actually gotten better from that Duke loss with Monday's excellent 75-64 victory over the North Carolina Tar Heels (+1 in the house). This is the exact same Tar Heels group that beat the Cards in January, and almost beat them once more recently prior to falling 78-68 in overtime as a 5-point road underdog.
