Free NCAAB Pick:

Louisville Cardinals +1.5

The Louisville Cardinals are one of the top tier teams in the ACC this season as they are 6-3, and they are coming off a very impressive win over Georgia Tech while the Syracuse Orange struggled with a NC State team who was missing their top 2 players. The Cardinals have one of the best backcourt duos in college basketball as Carlik Jones is averaging 17.4 PPG and 4.9 APG while David Johnson is pitching in 13.1 PPG and 6.1 RPG, and they should find success against the Syracuse defense that is allowing an average of 71.8 PPG which ranks 11th in the ACC. The Orange are a three-point shooting team, and they struggle when their shots aren’t falling, so expect Louisville to force the Orange off the line. Final Score Prediction, Louisville Cardinals win and cover ATS 75-69.
