The NCAA Tournament game Sunday night between No. 4 Louisville and No. 5 Northern Iowa should be a low-scoring affair as neither team allows more than 60 points per game.
With a trip to the Sweet 16 in the East Regional on the line, the Cardinals are slight favorites – the line opened at -1 and has since doubled in most sportsbooks.
UL didn’t cover the 8.5-point spread after defeating No. 13 UC Irvine 57-55 in the opener. UNI easily covered its 6.5 spread by beating No. 12 Wyoming 71-54.
