The boys in Vegas have had a tough time figuring the Louisville football team out over the past few seasons.
Louisville was last place in FBS last year going 1-11 against the spread with their lone cover being a four-point loss against Florida State. Heading into this season Louisville was 5-23-1 against the spread.
In 2019 the Cards have covered in each of their first two games.
The line has since moved, but not as much as you might expect. Online sportsbook Bovada has Louisville -10.5 while most Vegas sportsbooks have the Cards -10.
Given that WKU kicked off their season with a home loss to FCS Central Arkansas and Louisville has looked better than most expected, I thought we’d see the Cards as a bigger favorite.
After a brutal week one loss, WKU did bounce back winning outright at Florida International as an 8-point underdog.
With this game being played in Nashville I suppose oddsmakers view WKU as the home team, but Louisville fans should overwhelmingly outnumber Hilltopper fans.
Pick: Louisville covers 34-13
