Louisville Cardinals vs North Carolina Tar Heels 2/21/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Louisville Cardinals will meet with the North Carolina Tar Heels in an Atlantic Coast Conference clash in Dean E. Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC, on Monday, February 21, 2022, at 7:00 PM (EST). Louisville defeated Clemson 70-61 on Saturday, snapping a seven-game winless run.

 

Louisville is now ranked 10th in the ACC, and unless they can pull off a string of surprising shocks in the ACC Tournament, the Cardinals will miss out on the postseason. According to KenPom, Louisville is ranked 129th in the country.

 

The defense is the team’s most valuable asset, ranking 85th in adjusted efficiency and the offense 186th. Malik Williams tops the club with 9.6 points per game and 8.1 rebounds. Noah Locke tops the squad with 9.7 points per game. Louisville scored 44 of their 83 points in the first game against North Carolina, paced by El Ellis’ 25 points.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Louisville’s last 11 matches.
  • The University of Louisville Cardinals is 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches against North Carolina.
  • Louisville is 3-10 ATS in their last 13 matches in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Louisville Cardinals vs North Carolina Tar Heels Predictions 2/21/2022

 

If the season concluded today, the Tarheels would be a No. 12 seed in the NCAA Tournament, according to Joe Lunardi’s ESPN Bracketology. However, according to CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm, the club did not do enough to earn an at-large bid.

 

North Carolina won’t have to worry about an at-large bid if they win the ACC Tournament. They are currently tied for third place in the league with Miami, and they are two games behind Duke and one behind Notre Dame.

 

North Carolina is ranked 43rd in the KenPom rankings. They’re headed by a 25th-ranked offense in altered offensive efficiency.

 

Armando Bacot, who averages 16.1 points, 12.2 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks per game, leads the Tarheels with 16.1 points, 12.2 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks per game. Caleb Love leads the squad with 15.3 points per game, 3.7 assists, and 1.2 steals per game. North Carolina ranks 88th in adjusted defensive efficiency.

 

  • The University of North Carolina Tar Heels is 7-2 SU in their last 9 matches.
  • North Carolina is 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches at home against Louisville.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of North Carolina’s last 7 matches in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Louisville Cardinals vs North Carolina Tar Heels. The NCAAB pick for this game is the North Carolina Tar Heels. Despite their poor record, the Cardinals were not blown out that often.

 

Louisville lost 10 of its last 12 games, although only one of their previous five defeats is by more than ten points, including losses to Duke, North Carolina, Notre Dame, and Miami. On the other hand, while North Carolina has a lot riding on this game, winning the game is more important than winning by a large margin.

 

North Carolina only covered the spread in eight of their previous 26 games, all of which were against teams with a road-winning percentage below .400. Following this game, North Carolina’s remaining schedule includes games against North Carolina State, Syracuse, and Duke, all of which I anticipate to be more exciting for the Tarheels.

 

I think North Carolina will win the game outright, but Louisville will cover the spread. The North Carolina Tar Heels will win to a predicted score of 77-71.
