Florida State

 

Noles Get Cards on Short Rest

The fans at Tucker Center will see the Louisville Cardinals and the Florida State Seminoles when they take their seats on Saturday. This key ACC matchup will go a long way in sorting out the crowded pecking order in the ACC. The ACC is on the verge of sending 11 or more teams to the NCAA tournament as things stand now.

Oddsmakers opened the Seminoles as -2.5-point favorites versus the Cardinals, while the game’s total opened at 147.5.

Florida State was a 83-80 winner in its last match at home against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. They failed to cover the -5.5-point spread as favorites.  The Seminoles  came out of a grueling 6 game ACC stretch at 5-1. The stretch began with a home victory over Wake Forest. With wins over top-15 opponents Virginia and Duke, FSU has shown it is not intimidated by college basketball’s top-tier programs.

Louisville was a 92-60 winner in their most recent outing at home against Tigers. They covered the -5-point spread as favorites. Louisville playing on a quick turnaround. They are playing less than 48 hours after its victory against Clemson late Thursday night.

The Cardinals will be without star guard Quentin Snider and his 12.1 points per game. He is out with a hip injury and is expected to miss another two-to-three weeks. The Cardinals may also be missing center Matz Stockman. He is questionable with a concussion.
