Vrankovic has missed the previous two games battling an illness and it is unknown if he will play against UNC on Wednesday.
Will No. 2 Duke have a letdown here on the road after its impressive victory over then No. 2 Virginia on the road Saturday? Probably not, but I don’t expect the Cardinals to go down without a fight at the KFC Yum! Center either.
It was another impressive/efficient performance from Zion Williamson and company last time out, with 15 turnovers being the only blemish on the victory for the Blue Devils.
Louisville though comes in as the “hungrier” team on its home floor after a loss to FSU, a game which saw it hold a ten-point lead in the second half. In the end the Seminoles forced OT and the Cards just couldn’t keep up down the stretch.
But Louisville has responded well in this spot for bettors by going 12-3-1 ATS in its last 16 following an ATS loss, while the road team is still only 1-3-1 ATS in its last five in this series.
I think this one will come right down to the wire and will therefore recommend a second look at the home side and the points.

No analysis provided
The Blue Devils come into this one scoring a lot of points with 86.8 per game. Louisville comes in scoring a lot themselves with 78.6. #16 Louisville will run with #2 Duke, they may or may not get beaten at home but probably not by 7.5. Not being 100% on this one, even though we like Louisville, we are taking the over.
