It hasn't taken very long for the first "Upset Alert" post of the 2019 NCAA Tournament.

The first game of the full opening round of the 2019 NCAA Tournament pitted No. 7 seed Louisville against No. 10 seed Minnesota.

Plenty of No. 10 seeds have won games against No. 7 seeds, so this wouldn't be that crazy of an upset, but the majority of the money (and the expert predictions) were on Louisville.

ESPN's prediction gave Louisville a roughly 75 percent chance of winning.

Minnesota has been the better team so far, though.

The Golden Gophers are leading the Cardinals, 38-33, after 20 minutes of play.

Minnesota was led Amir Coffey, who had 13 points and 1 rebound in the first half.

The game is on CBS.
