The Louisville Cardinals haven't exactly played anybody up to this point and Purdue will be eager to bounce back after what was a frustrating tournament with losses to Tennessee and Western Kentucky. With that said, the Louisville Cardinals are still very tough defensively and that defense travels. I'm not confident in laying big chalk with the Boilermakers after they crapped the bed twice as big favorites against lesser teams. The value is with the Louisville Cardinals and the points even if it's a fade from the home team more than anything.
