Louisville DePaul Betting Tips – Louisville Tries To Uphold Big East, NCAA Seedings

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/25/2013 6:09:43 PM

The Louisville Cardinals are playing for a double-bye in the Big East Tournament and a No. 3 seed in the NCAA tournament. Their path to March Madness continues against DePaul.

Louisville Cardinals @ DePaul Blue Demons – Wednesday, February 27
Betting line: No line

Why Louisville Will Win

Legal online sports betting analysts know that when they do their homework and go over the important matchups in this game, they will emphasize the superiority of the Cardinals over and against the Blue Demons. Louisville is simply a better team. The Cardinals have more skill, more size, more quickness, more depth, more scoring punch, more of everything.

Louisville has been erratic and uneven at times this season, but the Cardinals have not endured a particularly miserable Big East loss this season. Louisville's worst Big East loss has come to Villanova, which has a winning record in the Big East and is on the NCAA bubble. The Cardinals' other Big East losses have come to Notre Dame, a likely NCAA tournament team; Georgetown, a team that is contending for the Big East title; and Syracuse, a team that has resided in the top 10 of the national rankings for most of the season.

Louisville does not give up bad losses; it should be able to take care of DePaul not just because it has the better team, but because it usually keeps its fous and concentration, avoiding the letdowns or look-aheads that lead to shocking upsets. The Cardinals should be fine in this game.

Why DePaul Will Win

NCAA football betting gurus with minimal college basketball knowledge should be able to look at the big picture with respect to this contest. It's true that Louisville is a superior team, but the Cardinals can play ugly basketball at pretty much any point in time. This is a team that has not lost to bad teams this season, but it has not been as impressive as many people expected it to be.

Louisville began the season ranked in the top five, but the Cardinals will not get a No. 1 seed in the upcoming NCAA tournament, probably not even a two seed. Louisville's offense has bogged down in halfcourt sets, thanks largely to the inconsistent play of point guard Peyton Siva; the poor shot selection of shooting guard Russ Smith; and the general inability of post players to make catches of entry passes.

Louisville's propensity for self-sabotage at the offensive end of the floor is considerable, enough that DePaul could thrive in an ugly game and keep this contest close for the full 40 minutes, stealing a win on a late bucket or two. The Blue Demons need help to win this game, but Louisville could definitely provide as much to DePaul.

Who Will Win

It’s clear that DePaul is not a particularly explosive team. Louisville might not play well in stretches, but it's hard to see how the Blue Demons will have enough offense to upset the Cards. Take Louisville.
