Scott Satterfield and the Louisville Cardinals will be underdogs for the fourth consecutive game as they take the field on Saturday against Miami.

According to VegasInsider.com, Miami is currently five point favorites over Louisville.

With their most recent win over Virginia, Louisville improved to 5-3 against the spread this season.

Miami improved to 5-4 on the year with a 27-10 win against rival, Florida State. The Hurricanes have now won consecutive ACC games for the first time this season.

Miami is one of the tougher teams to figure on the Louisville schedule. The Hurricanes handed a good Virginia team their first loss of the season earlier this year only to follow it up with a 28-21 loss to Georgia Tech as 18.5 point favorites.

In the five wins they have this season Miami has relied heavily on their strong defense. The Hurricanes rank 14th nationally in total defense and have given up a combined 22 points in their previous two games.

On offense Miami has struggled with a very young offensive line and two unproven quarterbacks. The Hurricanes have only scored more than 30 points once against FBS teams.

Redshirt freshman QB Jarren Williams was the week one starter, but eventually lost the job. He started on Saturday against Florida State and had the best game of his career with 313 yards and two touchdowns with zero interceptions.

The Cards and the Canes square off at 3:30 Saturday afternoon in Miami.
