Louisville Still Winless In True Road Games

Everybody knew this was going to be an odd year for the Louisville basketball program but the Cardinals have been largely performing well on the court despite outside distractions. I say “largely” because the team has been downright bad in true road games. Louisville is 0-3 SU and 1-2 ATS in hostile territory – though the competition has been fierce. It does not get any easier for the Cardinals on Wednesday when they visit a Florida State squad looking to rebound from a loss.

Shark Bites
  • Louisville is 3-0 ATS in its last 3 games against Florida State.
  • Florida State is 6-0-1 ATS in its last 7 games at home against teams with winning records.
  • Louisville is 2-10 ATS in its last 12 games as a road underdog.

FSU is coming off a grueling stretch of three straight games against ranked opponents, with two of them on the road. Luckily for the Seminoles, they return home to Tallahassee where they have won 26 consecutive games dating back to February 2016. Getting more consistency out of forward Phil Cofer will be vital, as the senior has eclipsed 20 points twice in the past seven but has failed to hit double digits three times in that span.

Louisville could exploit a down game from Cofer with the Cardinals relying heavily on their bigs to pick up wins this season. Five of Louisville’s top six scorers play in the frontcourt while the team as a whole ranks 22nd in the nation in rebounds per game.
