Marquette Golden Eagles vs Louisville Cardinals Odds

20-13TEAM RECORD23-8

Recent Louisvile Marquette meetings have been memorable for bettors because of a money-making trend - betting UNDER the total.

The Big East Tournament features these rivals at Madison Square Garden and the trend is not on the side (although the Eagles have covered three straight), rather on the total, where 8 of the past 9 games have cashed the UNDER.

Marquette can't rebound worth a damn, a serious handicapping concern at tournament time. While our computer projects a small Louisville win, our handicappers see a bigger margin of victory.
