NCAAB Betting Odds- (7) Louisville at (21) Memphis

Arguably the best game of the weekend features two ACC team clashing at the FedEx Forum, when the Memphis Tigers host the Louisville Cardinals, this Saturday at 2 PM ET, in a game broadcasted by CBS.

louisville_memphisLouisville, ranked 7th in the nation, has won seven in a row, including a 22 point victory over the Temple Owls on Thursday night.  The All-American guard Russ Smith shined with 24 points and four steals in the night.

“The ball is flowing great,” Smith said. “We’re pushing the ball, and that’s important. … Just being able to get out and put the pressure on the defense makes for a great team offensively.”

Memphis will be a nice challenge for the Cardinals because the Tigers already beat them on January 9.  Memphis is 21-7 in the season, but they are coming off a 77-68 loss to the Houston Cougars last Saturday.

“Ultimately, I don’t think we played any defense,” Tigers Michael Dixon Jr, who scored 19 points said. “We were horrible on the defensive end as a team. That decided the game. They were hitting wide-open shots and made a lot of shots. They are a good shooting team. Totally different team at home than on the road and that decided the game.”

Memphis is 8-2-1 ATS in its last 11 games when playing Louisville; however, the Tigers are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against the Cardinals.
