Louisville Marquette Betting – Louisville Tries To Stop Free-Fall In Milwaukee

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 10:03:19 PM

The Big East season has been a nightmare for the Louisville Cardinals. A team that dominated in non-conference competition has been thoroughly shredded by familiar league opponents.

Why Louisville Will Win

The college basketball betting experts who are going to have a lot of work to do on Martin Luther King Day will be focusing in part on an afternoon encounter between Louisville and Marquette. Louisville is getting pounded right now in the Big East Conference, but the Cardinals haven’t been a regular NCAA Tournament team for nothing. This is a program that manages to show a considerable degree of resilience each and every season. Just when you think a three- or four-game losing streak has landed Louisville to the canvas, the Cards figure things out. Just when Louisville seems utterly lost and entirely hopeless, head coach Rick Pitino – one of the best bench coaches in the sport, a gameday master at orchestrating the matchups he wants – delivers his best work and gets his team turned around. This is the scenario staring at the Cardinals in Milwaukee against Marquette. It’s so easy to think this team is a sitting duck, but that’s precisely when Louisville has proven to be particularly dangerous in the college basketball world. Don’t sleep on Louisville in this game; you might get a rude surprise.

Why Marquette Will Win

When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this game, you don’t have to make things any more complicated than they already are. Marquette is not a brilliant team or a dominant team, but the Golden Eagles have cultivated a reputation as an appreciably flinty outfit which doesn’t back down from a fight and is able to persevere in a closely-contested defensive grinder. This is, in other words, the kind of team that can beat Louisville at its own game. Further analysis of Cardinals-Golden Eagles suggest that Marquette is actually in good position to take this tilt in the state of Wisconsin.

Louisville, quite simply, is a mess. Don’t overthink the issue: The Cardinals just can’t score, and their lack of offense is carrying over to the defensive end of the floor. Louisville scored just 65 points in a double-overtime loss to Notre Dame last Saturday. UL then posted only 59 points in a humiliating 31-point loss to Providence on Tuesday night in the state of Rhode Island. Coach Rick Pitino is looking for answers, but the larger reality in the Commonwealth of Kentucky is that Louisville just doesn’t possess top-shelf offensive talent. When Louisville made the Elite Eight in both the 2008 and 2009 seasons, the Cardinals had Earl Clark and Terrence Williams, two difference-making offensive performers. Those kinds of rangy, powerful scorers are nowhere to be found on the current UL roster, and that’s a big reason why this team can’t buy a bucket. Marquette just needs to play solid defense if it wants to clip the Cards.

Who Will Win

It’s not too difficult to appreciate that Louisville is going to come out of this tailspin at some point. Will Monday afternoon be the time? It’s hard to tell, but the sensible play is to expect Louisville to struggle just a little bit longer. The breakthrough will come… but not against Marquette. Pick the Golden Eagles over the Cardinals in this contest.
