Louisville Cardinals -10 O/U: 56
The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers and the Louisville Cardinals will meet up on the college football gridiron Saturday.
Western Kentucky enters this one with a 1-1 record overall. The Hilltoppers fell to Central Arkansas in the opening game 35-28 but then took out FIU 20-14 last week.
In the win over FIU, Western Kentucky QB Steven Duncan put up 241 yards, one TD and two picks. Gaej Walker led the run on 100 yards and a TD, and Lucky Jackson had 93 yards from six catches.
Louisville comes in with a 1-1 mark this season as well. The Cardinals fell to Notre Dame 35-17 to open things up but then got a big 42-0 blowout win over Eastern Kentucky in Week 2.
In the win over EKU, Louisville QB Jawon Pass had 196 yards with four touchdowns and a pick. Javian Hawkins led the Cardinals rush with 123 yards while Justin Marshall had 59 yards from two catches.
The Cardinals are 16-4-1 ATS in their last 21 versus CUSA and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 in September. Louisville is 3-11-1 ATS in their last 15 non-conference games and 0-4 ATS in their last four neutral-site games.
Meanwhile, the Hilltoppers are 4-0 ATS in their last four in September and 17-7 ATS in their last 24 on grass. Louisville is 4-11 ATS in their last 15 non-conference games and the under is 4-0 in their last four in September.
The Hilltoppers scored 14 points in the first half against FIU, but ran out of steam a bit down the stretch scoreboard-wise. Still, they get credit for holding the Panthers at bay.
Matched up against Louisville here however should be a different story. I doubt this one will be close. I’m going Cards.
