Colorado State vs. Louisville,

Score: 56 - 82
Point Spread: +11/-110 Colorado State
A win streak like Louisville is on can have a tendency to push a line higher than it should be. This is why you should always play against favorites of 10 or more points after 10 or more consecutive wins. This system is 173-106 over the last five seasons. Louisville may have 11 consecutive wins, but in that stretch they have not faced a team like Colorado State. The Rams are one of the best rebounding teams in the country.
These teams are dead even in many ways. Both are averaging just over 73 points per game, both have a solid defense and they both do a good job of avoiding turnovers. The Colorado State Rams won 26 games this season so Louisville had better be ready for a battle. The Rams also have one of the best coaches in college basketball with Larry Eustachy. He has been successful at every school he has coached and this Colorado State team is one of the most talented teams he has coached.
