Louisville vs. Kentucky College Basketball Picks
Before watching the Kentucky-Louisville game, you need to see the college basketball picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer models. The SportsLine projection model simulates all Division I college basketball games 10,000 times. Going into Week 8 of the 2022-23 college basketball season, he posted a 21-15 roll in all of his highest-rated CBB picks. Anyone who has followed it has seen beneficial returns.
For Kentucky vs. Louisville, the model predicts that the Cardinals will get cover as the 23.5-point road underdogs. Kentucky has failed to cover his six-game streak, his 4-8 record this year, and Louisville’s 2-11 record against the spread is in line with his actual record.
But both of Louisville’s covers this season have come in their last four games, including as an 18-point underdog against North Carolina State on Thursday before the holidays. The Cardinals shot 51.1% of his shots from the floor, with four players scoring his double-digit numbers as he lost 76-64 to the Wolfpack. And while it’s a farce for a Louisville-caliber program to take solace in that kind of loss, it’s a simple reality for where they are now after the disastrous Chris Mack era.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats lost Wednesday against Missouri by 14 as the 3-point favorites, and haven’t come within 5 points in the 6-game stretch. His two opponents in Kentucky’s final shot 50.5% through the floor. Models think Louisville has enough offense to cover him nearly 60% of the simulation.
