Michigan State-Louisville Official Betting Picks Preview

By JoeDuffy.net Administrator

Here is the official betting preview of Michigan State-Louisville. Much like the Oklahoma-North Carolina game, the sportsbooks don’t seem to anticipate this Elite 8 game will be all that competitive.

BetUs Sportsbook, ranked first in customer satisfaction by OffshoreInsiders.com and ScoresOddsPicks.com, has the Cardinals a 6.5 point favorite. SportsBook has the total at 138.

Michigan State is 29-6 straight up and 18-13 to the number. Louisville is 31-5 outright and 22-14 in the back pocket.

The Spartans make 2.9 percent more of their shots than their opponent normally allow and they hold teams to 4.5 percent from the field below their normal average. The Cardinals shoot 3.5 percent better than their opponent normally allows, while holding teams to 5.1 percent less, an impressive number indeed.

As far as spread betting trends (all records against the spread): the Spartans are 22-8 opponent winning percentage of .600 or greater. They are also a super impressive 20-8 in the NCAA Tournament.

The Cardinals are 2-8 their last 10 nonconference and they are 0-5 to the Big 10. Yet, Rick Pitino’s boys are on a 39-19 overall run.

MSU has gone under 22-6 as an underdog of 6.5 or less, while the Ville has gone under 6-1 after scoring 100 or more points last game.
