The Louisville Cardinals have opened as a 3 point favorite for Friday’s game against North Carolina State. Also, the over/under for total points scored is 131 1/2, which means the score is projected to be somewhere around 67-64 in favor of the Cards. A little too close for me. I would be fine with a 10 point margin and some comfort. But I know, I know…just survive and advance.
These teams last met on February 14, 2015 with NC State winning 74-65 at the KFC Yum! Center. In this NCAA Tournament, they have beaten 9 seed LSU 66-65 and 1 seed Villanova 71-68.
Louisville and NC State play Friday at 7:37 pm ET in Syracuse, New York and the game can be seen on TBS.
