Kentucky-Louisville Sweet 16 Point Spread Set, Opening Line Favors Cardinals

Both Kentucky and Louisville took care of business in the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament, setting up a Sweet 16 showdown for the ages. The opening line has been set, with Vegas favoring the Cardinals by five points.

Each squad is littered with talent, and both have had their fair share of ups and downs throughout the course of the 2013-14 basketball season. Now, they get to put The Battle for the Bluegrass on the line for a trip to the Elite 8.

This will mark the 47th meeting between the rivals, with Kentucky holding a 31-15 overall record. The Wildcats also hold the edge in the postseason series at 3-2, with the last win coming in 2012 over the Cardinals in the Final Four.
