The ACC is littered with really good teams and I am excited to see this matchup.
These teams are very different in the way they play but I think FSU is the more talented group.
They are at home and to be honest have more to prove than Louisville.
This is a pretty good Louisville team that is really dogged on the defensive end. They lack next level stars though.
When it comes to scoring they lack a real go to player and if you watch them for a full game it can sometimes be painful to watch them on offense.
The closest they have to that guy is Quentin Snider who is dangerous because of how much he has the ball in his hands.
He is not the most talented though, that would be either Donovan Mitchell or Deng Adel. The problem is that all three of these guys shoot under 40% of the season. It looks good until it clangs against the rim and bounces away.
On defense the Cardinals are as good as any team in the country at suffocating opponents inside. They have length and alter or block a lot of shots.
This will be a test to see if they can keep the pace where they want it. They beat Kentucky which is a similar team in style to FSU.
Florida State Seminoles
FSU might have its best season ever in 2017. With the talent they have and what they have done so far they could easily play themselves into an ACC Championship and a #1 seed.
I know that sounds lofty but they have at least three players who could be on NBA rosters a year from now. Dwayne Bacon is probably good enough to be there right now but he came back to school to build on a very good freshman season…and has. His numbers are up.
Speaking of frosh Jonathan Isaac is a potential lottery pick. He is a little lean but he is a versatile scorer and rebounds pretty well. He can also block shots – he had 7 against Notre Dame in their three point win against the Irish earlier in the week.
Xavier Rathan-Mayes has been forced to take a back seat to the above but can still be a baller when they need him. He scored a team high 21 points when they routed Duke at home.
This team has a great mix this season.

Free Louisville Cardinals vs. Florida State Seminoles NCAAB Prediction:
This will definitely be a game of contrasts. FSU will try to speed things up while Louisville will look to slow things down.
FSU has the length to make things uncomfortable for Louisville the way they often do for opponents. I am not sure they are going to like that.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: FSU -3.5
Florida State has more ways to beat you than Louisville and being at home will give them the confidence they need to get tit done.
