College Hoops Preview: UConn vs. Louisville (Feb. 2)

National Powers Collide – UCONN vs. Louisville

The Connecticut Huskies, 20 and 1 straight-up, travel to Louisville to take on the Cardinals. The Huskies are easily one of the top teams in the Big East but against the BetUS online betting spread, they haven’t made any fans rich. Their record against the spread is a tepid 8 and 7. They are 4 and 1 against the spread on the road, though, which means sports wagering fans have to consider them in this game.

The Louisville Cardinals are a terrific straight-up team at 17 and 3. Their record against the BetUS online wagering spread is a very good 12 and 8. That’s only four games above .500 against the spread but in college basketball having any winning record against the spread is tough to do. At home the Cardinals are 8 and 5 against the BetUS online wagering spread.

Here are the BetUS online sportsbook betting odds for this game.

Connecticut Huskies +3 -110 O 136.5 -110
Louisville Cardinals -3 -110 U 136.5 -110

Here are a few online wagering trends that might help us find a good online bet in this game.

The Connecticut Huskies are 5 and 1 against the spread in their last five road games.
The Connecticut Huskies are 5 and 1 against the spread in their last six games as the underdog.
The Louisville Cardinals are 7 and 1 against the spread in their last 8 games overall.
The Louisville Cardinals are 6 and 1 against the spread in their last 7 games as the favorite.

Both Louisville and Connecticut come into this game rather healthy. The key is going to be that Louisville frontline against the brilliant Hasheem Thabeet and Jeff Adrian. The Connecticut Huskies have one of the best inside/outside games in the nation and it should be on display in Louisville on Monday night.

The Cardinals suffered a loss against the spread to West Virginia in their last and usually I’d be all over them since Rick Pitino’s team rarely drops two games in a row against the spread.

But this is Connecticut. When Connecticut is favored by a ridiculous margin, they never cover against the spread. When they are underdogs, they cover spreads like mad.

I have to take a shot on the Huskies in this game. I believe Thabeet and Adrien might be too much for that Louisville frontline.

UCONN vs. Louisville Prediction:

I’ll be making an online basketball bet on the Connecticut Huskies at +3 in the BetUS online sportsbook.
