The #4 Michigan Wolverines face the Louisville Cardinals in an epic December matchup on Tuesday at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky. Wolverines are on a seven-game winning streak, as they have not lost a game this season, and are coming off of the feeding number 9 Gonzaga. And number 7 North Carolina in their last two games. This game is easily the most intriguing matchup this week, a must-watch.

The Wolverines are currently slaying all the teams that were favored above them this season. Michigan is quite possibly the scariest team in all of college basketball, and this game will have huge implications on how serious people take Michigan are taken this season. The Wolverines went from unranked to skyrocketing all the way up to fourth and a win here could put them at the very top of college basketball once again.

Louisville Cardinals are on a seven-game winning streak of their own, without losing a game this season. The Cardinals are coming off of a 71-54 win over Western Kentucky University, continuing their excellent run of form.

Louisville ranked as the nation's number one team in the country, at 7-0 and on top of the ACC. Do you have Junior guard Jordan Nwora who leads the team in points with 21.9 points per game and is tied for 17th in the nation in that category.

Michigan is 5-2 ATS this season.
Wolverines are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight-up win.
Louisville is 3-4 ATS this season.
Cardinals are 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 vs. Big Ten.

Michigan’s huge skyrocketing up the rankings should give them confidence coming into Louisville. However, Louisville is a team that has had a target on their back and have not lost yet. Some could argue though that Michigan has faced much tougher tests and have already passed with flying colors, and this game will be a huge test for Louisville to see if they can do the same. Final score prediction, Louisville Cardinals wins 81-79.
