The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season continues on Saturday, Nov. 12 with another slate of exciting games. One of the upcoming tilts is a battle between two teams looking for their first win of the year when the Wright State Raiders visit the Louisville Cardinals.

Wright State went to double overtime with Davidson on Wednesday, only to walk out with the 102-97 loss. Meanwhile, Louisville didn't fare well in its season-opening matchup with Bellarmine, losing 67-66. Which team will experience the sweet taste of victory tonight?

Wright State vs Louisville Prediction & Pick

Dating back to last season, it's been tough being a Louisville fan. The Cardinals have lost 13 of their last 15 outings following their loss to Bellarmine. However, a matchup with Wright State could be what they need to get back on track.

For starters, Louisville is 7-0 straight up in its last seven outings against the Horizon League. The Cardinals also have the advantage on the perimeter here, having shot 39.3% from three-point range in their season opener, compared to the Raiders' 26.7% success rate.

Louisville also has an advantage on defense. Last season, the Cardinals finished No. 185 when it comes to scoring defense, whereas the Raiders placed No. 251 in the nation and even gave up four more points per game on the road than they did at home.

After Wright State surrendered over 100 points to Davidson a few nights ago, I'm going with Louisville getting the bounce-back win at home.

Final Score Prediction: Louisville: 74 | Wright State: 69

Wright State vs Louisville Best Bet

Even though I'm projecting the Cardinals to win, I'm not counting on them covering the spread. Louisville has been a dreadful 6-14 against the spread (ATS) in its last 20 games, even going 1-6 ATS in its last seven home outings. Meanwhile, Wright State has covered the spread in five of its last six games.

After Louisville failed to cover the 8.5-point spread against Bellarmine, I'm going with Wright State keeping this one close.

Bet: Wright State +5.5 (-110)
