College basketball betting on Monday features a must-win game for both Connecticut and Louisville.
Neither team is playing that well and they both are in danger of falling out of the NCAA Tourney picture. Those that bet on college basketball have not found much success taking either of these teams in the past couple of weeks.
College basketball betting has Louisville with the better conference record at 4-4 but the Huskies are still considered a talented squad. Connecticut has not played well on the road and they badly need a quality road win. The Huskies have been coached by assistant George Blaney while head coach Jim Calhoun is on medical leave. They are 2-2 without Calhoun at the helm and he won’t be on the sideline on Monday. The Huskies lost at home 70-68 on Saturday to Marquette in college basketball betting. Jerome Dyson scored 18 points and Kemba Walker added 15 but the Huskies couldn’t rally from an early deficit. "It’s been the story the whole season, where everybody doesn’t come out to play at the start of the game," Dyson said. "We always get ourselves in a hole and then we have to play the rest of the game trying to get out of it." The question for those that bet on college basketball to answer is which team will play well on Monday.
Louisville really is upset about their latest college basketball betting loss. They blew a 12-point lead on Saturday and lost 77-74 to West Virginia. The Cardinals have lost four of their last five overall with three of those losses coming by a combined 11 points. Samardo Samuels and Reginald Delk each scored 16 points for Louisville.
Last season Connecticut routed Louisville 68-51 in college basketball betting. The Huskies have won four of six Big East matchups with Louisville. The Huskies are 1-3-1 vs. the college basketball betting odds in the last 5 meetings.
The Cardinals are 43-17-2 vs. the bet on college basketball odds in their last 62 vs. the Big East. The Cardinals are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Cardinals are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
Nine of the last 12 Connecticut road games have gone under for those that bet on college basketball. Six of the last eight Louisville home games have gone over the college basketball betting total.
