Louisville Opens As A 5-Point Underdog At North Carolina

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

After being favored to win 59 consecutive games -- a streak which spanned from March 12, 2013 through Dec. 27, 2014 -- Louisville will likely take the court on Saturday as an underdog for the second time in as many weeks.

Las Vegas pegged North Carolina as a 5-point favorite in tomorrow's showdown with the fifth-ranked Cards, a line which has since been bet down to UNC -3.5.

Ken Pomeroy also likes the Tar Heels in the game, currently projecting a 71-67 North Carolina victory.

While this is different, it's certainly more fun than going into a Saturday game where you know even a 50-point win isn't going to impress anybody.
