Vegas Odds & College Basketball Predictions: Louisville Cardinals vs North Carolina Tar Heels

#7 Louisville Cardinals vs. #8 North Carolina Tar Heels

Cardinals: 22-5 (5-3 V)
Tar Heels: 23-5 (14-0 H)
When: 9:00 PM ET, Wednesday, February 22, 2017
Where: Dean E. Smith Center, Chapel Hill, North Carolina

The seventh-ranked Louisville Cardinals will look to keep their winning ways and attempt to tie the division lead as they prepare to lock horns with the North Carolina Tar Heels in a huge Atlantic Coast conference showdown which will take place on Wednesday at the Dean E. Smith Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

This will be the first and only meeting this season between the two dominant schools. The Cardinals won the only game they played against the Tar Heels last year but have struggled before that losing four of their last five games to UNC. During that span, all their confrontations have been decided by ten points or less.

We could have a huge log jam atop the ACC by Thursday morning. If the Cardinals can prevail in their tilt against the Tar Heels, they would then be tied for the lead in the conference with an 11-4 record. Duke could join the duo if it can beat Syracuse on Wednesday. UNC still has a game remaining to play against the Blue Devils.

The Tar Heels have the toughest schedule of the three teams with Duke and Virginia in their path although the Cavaliers have struggled mightily losing four straight games. The Cardinals’ real threat after the Tar Heels is Notre Dame in the finale of their regular season. The Irish have won their last 3 contests against Louisville.

BetOnline has the North Carolina listed as 5½-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 153.
