The Cardinals are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games. The Seminoles are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 home games, 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Atlantic Coast and 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Seminoles last 5 home games and the over is 8-2 in Cardinals last 10 road games.
The Louisville Cardinals are still really solid defensively, but they're just 6-7 ATS this season due to inconsistent offense and the inability to put teams away. The Cards have also failed to cover five of their last six road games. The Florida State Seminoles are going to be hungry for a victory to kind of right the ship after losing to Duke and Miami, and the Noles are a solid 9-3-1 ATS this season. This is kind of a prove it game for Florida State, and due to better balance, you have to think the home team gets it done. Give me the Seminoles and the reasonable chalk.
