Louisville opens as a 1-point underdog against Virginia

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Louisville opened as a 1-point underdog on Friday for this weekend's regular season finale against No. 2 Virginia, a line which has since moved to the Cavaliers -2. UVA was an 8.5-point favorite in their meeting with the Cards in Charlottesville last month, a game U of L lost by a final score of 52-47.

Assuming the line holds, this will be the fourth time this season that Louisville will go into a game as an underdog. The Cards lost on the road as dogs against Virginia and North Carolina, and were beaten at home by favored Kentucky.

Louisville was favored in its other four losses -- at home against Duke, Notre Dame and NC State, and on the road at Syracuse.
