March Madness Wagering - New Mexico vs Louisville Cardinals vs Saturday Night Live

March Madness Betting Online: The red hot Louisville Cardinals have a tight fight on their hands when they tip off against New Mexico for a dreamy berth in the Sweet Sixteen.

New Mexico got a performance where it really counted against Long Beach State, and that was a defensive effort of excellence by Kendall Williams. He pawed and bumped and grinded, but he was not trying to dance at any time.

March Madness Wagering involves defensive play so much in these NCAA Tournaments. Williams was crazy effective putting the clamps on Casper Ware and making it difficult to get any kind of good shot for the Big West Player of the Year. He could only make 5 of his 19 field goal attempts and still led Long Beach State shooters with 17 points.

Defense was the key to Kendall’s play, but he was playing both sides hard scoring 14 points in the second half and making clutch shots when needed.

The Cardinals are the No. 4 seed, but if they didn’t have Peyton Siva I think they would drop many spots looking at his first March Madness Tournament game. His goal was to wear the Davidson players down with a lot of movement skillfully dribbling and bouncing around like he was bait for a fish. He also led Louisville in scoring with 17 points and 6 assists.

They have been on a roll late in the year, and although their talent is on fire right now, make your March Madness Wagering choices intelligently. Louisville almost let themselves lose this last game to Davidson, and that is where New Mexico may have a chance if they can be patient and force the Cardinals into mental mistakes.

The key for this game is Peyton Siva just as it was when they beat Davidson. Siva and center Gorqui Dieng who is 6 foot 11 both had to come out of the game because they got into foul trouble. They were fortunate to have a decent lead when that happened, and you can bet your March Madness Wagering dollars that New Mexico knows it and will try to exploit aggressive or sloppy play. I am just not sure that will be enough.
