NCAA FREE PICK: Take Louisville. According to the latest college basketball trends, the Cardinals are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games overall and 10-3 ATS in their last 13 NCAA Tournament games. They’re also 22-7 ATS in their last 29 neutral site games, 18-8 ATS in their last 26 non-conference games and 37-18 ATS in their last 55 games following an ATS win. Most believe that this will be a close game and while Kentucky is certainly capable of hanging with Louisville and making a run at a Final Four appearance, the Cardinals have been the more consistent team and I like them to pull through in the end.
