Tonight, March the 10th, sees the Louisville Cardinals taking on the Cincinnati Bearcats in this year’s Big East Tournament. Tonight’s tip off is scheduled for 9:00 pm ET, from Madison Square Garden in New York City. The 20-11 Cardinals have been an excellent home team this year, but the road has been a different story. A 4-7 road record has hindered this team on their way to the NCAA Tournament, and it is tough to say how they will show up in a neutral site game. On the other side of the ball, the Bearcats road season tells a similar story. A 2-9 record on the road has seriously held this team back from a monster season, as they are 12-4 on home court. Louisville has clearly been the better team on the offensive side of the ball, as they average 76.7 points per game, 7.5 more points per game than their opponent this evening. However, the Bearcats defense has been superior to that of the Cardinals, averaging 3.0 points less per game than the Cardinals. Tonight’s matchup should be a dandy to see who can move onto the semi-finals of this year’s Big East Tournament. Below we have listed odds for the spread and over/under for this game, as well as giving our own person prediction for this Big East matchup.

Cincinnati vs. Louisville Betting Predictions:
Spread – The fact that both of these teams have poor ATS numbers this season makes this a difficult game to predict. The Bearcats are 7-19-0 ATS this season, while the Cardinals are just 10-16-0 ATS on the season. However, I will predict the CARDINALS to cover the 6 point spread in tonight’s ball game. The Cardinals offense is just too superior to that of the Bearcats, as they average 7.5 points more on offense per game than the Bearcats. Louisville likes to show up within their own conference, as they are 47-23-2 ATS in their last 72 games vs. the Big East. The complete opposite can be said for the Bearcats, as Cincinnati is 5-21 ATS in their last 26 games vs. the Big East, as well as being 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog. Take the Cardinals to cover in tonight’s game.
Over/Under – Bet on the UNDER 138 total points in tonight’s game. Under is 5-1 in the Bearcats last 6 games at a neutral site, as well as their last 6 games as an underdog.

Head-to-head, the Under is 7-3 in their last 10 meetings overall. Take the Under 138 total points tonight from Madison Square Garden in New York City, NY.
