College Basketball hasn't necessarily been good to the books, though the more pivotal part of the season is just around the corner.


A key game took place between rivals Kentucky and Louisville Saturday.  The Wildcats walked all over the Cardinals, on the road no less.

The books liked Louisville's chances of winning by encouraging more action to flood in on public favorite Kentucky.  Pinnacle moved this one down to -2 an hour ahead of the game. was giving the Cardinals a 55% chance of winning as a result.  Football has been great for the books, and G911 readers.  Not so with College Basketball.  We're getting crushed.

In the end, Kentucky destroyed Louisville.  Unless this was a one-off, the Cardinals might not stand a chance come March Madness if this is how they are going to play.

Tyler Herro threw down a career-high 24 points and knocked down 10 of 13 from the field for the Wildcats.  This included a stellar 4 of 6 mark from beyond the arc.

Kentucky was listed with 18-1 odds of winning the 2019 NCAA Men's College Basketball Championship ahead of this game and the odds are likely to be slashed further.
