March Madness 2009 has its top seed as Louisville, who opened as a 21-point chalk in their opening game of the NCAA Tournament vs. Morehead State. March Madness 2009 will have few if any numbers as big as what Louisville must cover but if any team in the NCAA Tournament can lay the wood it is the Big East champion Cardinals.
Louisville enters March Madness 2009 as one of the most reliable and profitable teams on the board this year. The Cardinals had an overall record of 28-5 straight up and 21-12 against the spread.
“The Ville” also enters March Madness 2009 action as one of the absolute best bets in away action as the Cardinals paid off gamblers in 8 out of 9 lined road games this season. Louisville also appears to be a power team that is capable of covering as a chalk for March Madness 2009 as they were 18-12 against the board as favorites this season.
The Cardinals enter March Madness 2009 with considerable momentum as they won BOTH the regular season AND conference tournament titles in the Big East, which is considered to be one of the toughest leagues in the nation, not just this year but perhaps ever!
Louisville has the scorching hot hand for March Madness 2009 as since January 7 they have been a virtual ATM machine with a fabulous mark of 18-5 against the spread and have covered 5 straight games entering March Madness 2009.
With coach Rick Pitino the Cardinals have one of the elite leaders in the game and a man that has “danced” numerous times and has earned a national title back from his days at Kentucky. Morehead State, however, may be a team that can cover the big number against the powerful Cardinals.
The Eagles have a mark of 20-15 straight up and 19-12 against the spread. They were also a solid 11-7 against the board as dogs. These two teams met earlier this season on November 22 at Louisville and the Cardinals got the cash in a 79-41 win as 29.5-point chalks.Put on your “dance shoes” for this one along with the rest of the “Madness” by opening an account at BetRoyal.com!
