Final Four – Wichita State vs. Louisville Free Pick: The Louisville Cardinals are the most dominating team that we have seen in the NCAA Tournament to date. They’ll try to beat the Final Four betting lines on Saturday, April 6th when they take on the Wichita State Shockers in the first of the two Final Four encounters at the Georgia Dome. Louisville is one of the biggest favorites that we have ever seen in the Final Four on the NCAA Tournament odds, as it is getting the nod by 10 ½-points. The ‘total’ on the Wichita State vs. LouisvilleFinal Four lines has been set at 133.

Wichita State is a team that few should have really messed with this year. The Shockers have now won 30 games and have gotten into the Final Four for the first time in over a half century. We have come to know and love names like Carl Hall, Cleanthony Early, and Ron Baker. Unfortunately for Wichita State though, this is the end of the road, and it is going to be the end of the road in a big time way. Head Coach Rick Pitino really had all week to study this matchup against the Shockers, and we have to think that he’ll like what he sees. The Missouri Valley reps are going to try to pressure the basketball and ultimately force turnovers, but that’s the exact same strategy that Louisville is going to try to deploy. The Cardinals are just better at the same type of game, and they are faster at it and go to the ball with more authority. We love what this experienced backcourt of Peyton Siva and Russ Smith brings to the table, and the injury to Kevin Ware is going to be just what the doctor ordered to lead this team on the run that it needs to make to win this game and get to the NCAA Tournament Final.
