BOZICH BLOG: U of L-UK Forecasts -- Cards by 9 or more

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WDRB) -- It's time for Christmas break. John Calipari has already dismissed his Kentucky team for a short opportunity to return home. Rick Pitino assembled his Louisville team for a final practice Sunday morning before giving them two full days off.

But first ... the Cardinals and Wildcats will play Saturday at 4 p.m. in the KFC Yum! Center. Kentucky has won four straight over U of L by an average of nearly 10 points per game.

Las Vegas won't deliver its official point spread for several days. There is no need to wait. What do two of the top college basketball computer formulas project?

KEN POMEROY: His model has Louisville winning, 71-62, with an 80 percent win probability. (For the record, Pomeroy has U of L favored in every game until a March 2 trip to Syracuse.)

JEFF SAGARIN: His preferred Predictor rating has Louisville better by 11.9 points.

Both numbers seem high for a rivalry game, but none of the last four games in the series has been closer than 7 points.
