Louisville has won seven straight after losing as a favorite

The Louisville Cardinals are 7-0 SU in their last seven games coming off a loss as a favorite. After losing to Duke as a 1.5-point favorite in their last game, the Cardinals will look to bounce back against the Jacksonville State Gamecocks.

  • The total has gone OVER in eight of Louisville's last 10 games.
  • Jacksonville State is 6-2 ATS in its last eight games as an underdog of 20.0 or more.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of Jacksonville State's last eight games after an ATS win.

The Cardinals earned a No. 2 seed due to their full body of work this season with a 24-8 SU and 18-12 ATS record. But Louisville doesn't enter the tournament with much momentum after going 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS over its last five games. The 2 seed is just 2-7 ATS in its last nine games against teams with winning records.

Jacksonville State was 4-6 SU and ATS over its last 10 games heading into its regular-season finale against Morehead State. The Gamecocks won that game on the road, and proceeded to go 3-0 SU and ATS in the Ohio Valley tournament, including a win as an 8-point underdog over Belmont to punch their ticket into March Madness.

Low-scoring games have been a staple in Jacksonville State's season with the UNDER going 16-2 in the Gamecocks' last 18 games.
