Free Pick of the Day - LOUISVILLE (+4') VS. PITTSBURGH


It's do or die for HC Rick Pitino and his redbirds as they lock horns with the Panthers to play for the right to match up with West Virginia in the second round. The season looked promising after they got off to a 11-1 start, but the start of Big East play saw them lose 10 of their overall 16 games. Injuries hampered their conference play, but they enter tonight's game the healthiest they've been in quite some time.

Pitt looked to be a major player in the Big East half way through their conference schedule, but faltered down the stretch losing 5 of their L/10 overall. That includes a pair of losses to Seton Hall and West Virginia to close out their regular season schedule.

These clubs met only once this year, and Pitt took home the cash as 3-point road pups by a 61-57 count. Taquan Dean reinjured his ankle early in that one, and only got to play for the first 12 minutes. His scoring was severely missed even though the Cards held a 1-point lead at the half.

With both clubs desperate for a first round win, I'm going to back the Cards who find themselves on life support. They need to win a few games in this tourney just to be considered for the Dance, and I'll back a Rick Pitino coached squad anytime it's grabbing points in tournament play. The Cards are 6-3 SU off a loss against a conference rival this season, and a decent 2-1 ATS seeking revenge from a home loss. Grab whatever points you can as this one might come down to a final shot to determine the victor.
