Virginia, Louisville Have Traditionally Gone UNDER

ACC play kicks off with a huge matchup when the No.12 Virginia Cavaliers visit the KFC Yum! Center to take on the eighth-seeded Louisville Cardinals on Wednesday. Since Louisville joined the ACC in 2014, these two teams have collided four times with the UNDER cashing on three of those occasions. Louisville and Virginia have averaged a combined 109.8 points in their prior four meetings with an average closing total of 120.5.

Shark Bites
  • Virginia is 7-3 ATS in its past 10 road games.
  • The UNDER is 8-2 in Louisville’s 10 games with a posted total this season.
  • Louisville averaged just 46.5 points in two games against Virginia last season.

Virginia has been exactly what you would expect so far this season, as the offense ranks a dreadful 269th in the country while the defense is the best in the nation. The only Cavaliers player to average double-digit points has been senior London Perrantes, who tallies 10.0 points per game.

Louisville is coming off a massive 73-70 victory over then sixth-ranked Kentucky. Quentin Snider had the best game of his career, as the junior scored 22 points to go along with six rebounds, five assists and two steals. The Cardinals are reliant on Snider and Donovan Mitchell offensively, as the duo have combined for more than a third of the team’s shots.
