Connecticut Louisville Betting – Cardinals Look To Keep Moving Forward In Big East Against Connecticut

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 10:18:47 PM

Once again it seems as though the Big East may be the conference with the most depth at the top. The No. 25 Louisville Cardinals are learning how to handle competing in it, and have gotten back on track after struggling out of the gate with their conference schedule. After winning three straight games the Cardinals have back-to-back contests against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights and Connecticut Huskies over a span of three days, two key dates that will go a lone way in determining where Louisville ends up in the Big East.

While the Cardinals have responded strong, bouncing back with those three wins, the inconsistent Huskies have done exactly the opposite. With NBA first round pick Kemba Walker no longer around to lead the offense, Connecticut has struggled with four straight losses leading in to Saturday’s game against Seton Hall.

The sports betting underdogs are averaging just 68.6 points per game this season, 116th in the country, and declines from 67 to 57, to 48, and then to 44 over those four straight losses were an example of how the team has performed over the past couple of weeks. Sophomore Jeremy Lamb leads the team with 17.7 points per game, and fellow sophomore Shabazz Napier has helped out with 13.6 points, but there hasn’t been much consistency elsewhere, and Connecticut is not good enough defensively to overcome their lack of punch at the offensive end.

The Cardinals aren’t worried at all about their offense right now with Kyle Kuric leading a group of six different players averaging at least 8.4 points per game, and the ability to rely on the depth in their rotation has been a major part of their recent success. Louisville also has some good size throughout its lineup, with Gorgui Deng and Chane Behanan leading the way for a team that ranks 23rd in rebounding. The Cardinals have been much better at home this season than they have been on the road with close losses to Georgetown and Notre Dame the only blemishes on an otherwise perfect record.

The key to this contest from a sports bet perspective is the consistency that Louisville has shown at the KFC Yum! Center this season, an edge that has made the difference so far for their standing in the Big East. The Cardinals had won three straight games by at least nine points heading in to this past weekend, and there is no reason to think they will slow down against a struggling Huskies’ team that has been far too inconsistent recently. The defending Big East champions are on the bubble right now, and it won’t be easy with games against Louisville and then the No. 2 Syracuse Orange.
