My Prediction: The Huskies Kemba Walker has found his scoring touch again the last 2 games. He’s averaging 26.5 in two home wins recently. Now the Huskies travel to Louisville and try to avenge an early season home overtime loss to the Cardinals. Louisville is 6-0 at home in the Big East. I’ll lay the small number at home tonight.

Louisville -3.5
