Without the presence of a truly dominant NBA prospect, it’s hard to gauge just where the Cardinals ought to fall on the NCAA futures. Their lack of a Cody Zeller, Nerlens Noel or Shabazz Muhammad may hurt their household appeal, but the strength of their core as an operating unit only helps their odds of winning the March Madness tournament come spring.
Although the Cardinals won’t exactly be tested by a contending program until mid-December, their fall slate will give them ample opportunity to perfect their approach to the 2012-13 campaign.
Expect Russ Smith to shoulder much of the offensive load in his junior season while senior Peyton Siva and sophomore Kevin Ware do their best to help round out Pitino’s attack. Together they not only hold Louisville’s NCAA basketball odds in their hands, but their head coach’s legacy.
A 2013 National Tournament victory would give the long-time collegiate and professional coach just his second career win. Bet on March Madness today.
