Louisville is 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five home games, 1-3-1 against the spread following a win, and 6-1 against the spread when their opponent scores 100 or more in their previous game. NC- Wilmington is 3-7-1 against the spread following a win, 3-8-1 against the spread in their last 12 non-conference games, and 5-2-1 against the spread on the road against a team with a winning home record.
This is a bundle of points but this is also a huge mismatch and I see Louisville rolling.
