4* BIG EAST PRIME TIME MONDAY ESPN WINNER
Connecticut vs. Louisville,
02/06/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 59 - 80
Point Spread: -4/-101 Louisville
Louisville comes into the game tonight riding four straight conference wins by at least 9-points. The Cardinals face a Connecticut team that crushed Seton Hall at home 69-46 on Saturday, but Seton Hall was without their top player, so I wouldn't read into that win much. Prior to that game Connecticut had lost four straight, including a 14-point loss at Georgetown the last time they played on the road,
Outside of Connecticut's win over Louisville in the Big East tournament, the Cardinals have owned this series of late. Prior to that loss Louisville had won the previous four meetings, including consecutive 13-point wins at home.
Louisville is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record and are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400. Connecticut is just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. BET THE CARDINALS!
