Louisville Cardinals vs Pittsburgh Panthers

Where: Petersen Events Center, Pittsburgh, PA

When: Tuesday, January 14, 7:00 PM. ET.

The Pittsburgh Panthers will be trying to bounce back from their loss to Miami when they take on the Louisville Cardinals on Tuesday night.

Cardinals Going For Third Consecutive Win

The Cardinals bounced back from their two-game losing streak by winning their last two games. They will try to keep the momentum going with a win over the Panthers, which will give them their third win in a row and fifth win in their last seven games.

Louisville has played well offensively, averaging 74.8 points per game. The team is shooting 46 percent from the field and 37 percent from three-point range. They finished with 67 points in their last game and will need a significantly better performance if they want to get past the Panthers.

Jordan Nwora led the way for the Cardinals with 20 points and four rebounds. Ryan McMahon finished with 17 points and two rebounds, while Dwayne Sutton added 10 points and 14 rebounds for the Cardinals.

Louisville has also played well defensively, holding opponents to 61.2 points per game. They gave up 64 points in their last game and will need a similar performance if they want to keep their winning streak going.

Panthers Going For Fifth Win In Seven Games

The Panthers were unable to follow up their win over North Carolina with a win over Miami in their last game and will try to bounce back from the loss by defeating the 11th-ranked Cardinals, which will give them their fifth win in their last seven games.

Pittsburgh has struggled offensively, averaging 66.2 points per game. The team is shooting 41 percent from the field and 29 percent from three-point range. They finished with 58 points in their last game and will need to do a better job on the offensive end if they want to pick up the win.

Trey McGowens led the way for the Panthers with 18 points and seven assists. Terrell Brown finished with 10 points and four rebounds, while Au'Diese Toney added nine points and five rebounds for the Panthers.

Pittsburgh has done a better job on the defensive end, holding opponents to 61 points per game. They gave up 66 points in their last game and will need to keep playing well on the defensive end to give themselves a chance to win this game.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Cardinals have done a good job on the defensive end, holding opponents to 61.2 points per game. They will frustrate the Panthers offensively because Pittsburgh hasn’t played well on offense, averaging 66.2 points per game. Even though they have struggled offensively, the Panthers will keep this one close because they have done a great job defensively, holding opponents to 60.4 points per game at home, and should be able to slow down the Cardinals, who are averaging 74.8 points per game. The Cardinals have the rebounding edge, averaging 40.2 rebounds per game while the Panthers average 35.1 rebounds per game. With 32.1 percent of their rebounds coming on the offensive end, the Cardinals will get more second-chance opportunities in this game, giving them the edge.

Prediction: Louisville Cardinals

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The Cardinals and Panthers are both good defensive teams so don’t expect to see a high-scoring game. Pittsburgh is holding opponents to 60.4 points per game at home and will keep the Cardinals, who are averaging 74.8 points per game, under their season average. The Cardinals are giving up 61.2 points per game and should also be able to keep the Panthers under their season average because Pittsburgh hasn’t played well on offense and is averaging 66.2 points per game. With the two teams playing under the total in six of their last 10 games, the under makes the most sense here.

Prediction: Under

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

The Cardinals will cover the first-half spread in this game because they have outplayed the Panthers in the first half of their games, averaging 37 points per game while the Panthers average 26.7 points per game.

Prediction: Louisville Cardinals

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

The Cardinals and Panthers are averaging 63.7 combined points per game in the first half of their last three games and will stay under the first-half total in this game if they maintain their current scoring pace.

Prediction: Under
