The Lousiville Cardinals are in the midst of their worst losing streak since 1940. The Cardinals lost 70-63 to Miami on Wednesday, taking their current streak to seven. After losing 12 in the first half, Louisville was able to pull the game back in the third round but couldn’t get the job done. As bad as it gets, things aren’t going for the better for the Clemson Tigers, who are experiencing a fifth straight loss.
The Tigers fell to the Florida State Seminoles 81-80 in a heartbreaking loss. With nothing left to play but to avoid embarrassment, it’s hard to know what will come out of this game. Here are the odds for this ACC match, with the help of WynnBET Sportsbook.
Total: 154 (Above -110/Under -110)
As for as bad as Louisville this year in the win/loss column, they’ve been significantly worse than the spread. Head to head tonight, Louisville is 1-6 ATS in their last seven and 2-13 in their last 15. As the weaker team at home, they are 0-3 ATS and 3-11 in all home games this season. The Cardinals haven’t played a home game since December 14 and I’m not confident they can turn things around tonight against Clemson.
Now, this is not to say Clemson isn’t without its problems. They have not won any of their last five and are ATS 5-6-2 after one loss. But overall, they’re 12-11-3 ATS for the year and 3-5-1 ATS as the road team.
Comparatively speaking, Clemson has an outstanding culpability, ranking 120th nationally compared to Cardinals’ 228th. Cardinals recover well on attack but that’s all they do effectively on that side of the ball. They cannot throw the free-throw (274th nationally), from downtown (283th), or in the second half when it counts (280th). All good reasons to fade the Cardinals as the worse of two bad teams. Clemson is also pretty bad so I would stay away from arbitrage and sacrifice some value to get the Tigers back to the money line.
Lean: Clemson -160 to win
