Over/Under Pick: Under 129 Points

The Louisville-Virginia matchup has one of the smallest totals from college basketball lines of the day, but the two should still stay under it with how their offenses have been playing lately.

The Cardinals have struggled to shoot the ball, ranking third-worst in the ACC with a 41.9% shooting percentage and 28.9% percentage from beyond the arc. They won’t have an easy day shooting against Virginia, which leads the ACC limiting opponents to 56.2 points a game on 37.8% shooting.

Although the Cavaliers shoot better at 45%, they have been averaging 65.8 points. Their offense has struggled recently as well. In its last three games, Virginia has averaged 62.3 points on 41.5% shooting. Louisville’s defense may not be as big a threat as the Cavaliers’ last opponent in Notre Dame, but it should still be enough to keep the game under the total.
