Bet on Louisville Because…
This Louisville team is now on the fast track to be in the College Football Playoffs after 3 of the top 4 ranked teams lost last weekend. This will be a short week playing on Thursday night where both teams need to focus on just this game. The Cardinals have played some of the top teams and BEATEN them already, so they need to stay true to short week focus here.
This offensive MACHINE has only scored below 42 points twice all year, and it is no coincidence considering they have the Number 1 overall offense in the FBS standings this year. The offense is amazingly balanced with the offense ranked No. 9 rushing with 270.0 yards and No.17 passing throwing for another 313.2 yards a game in the air. That will be very DIFFICULT to beat!
Bet on Houston Because…
The Cougars haven’t lost any game at home this year, and they’re looking to keep their defense on track to ruin the Cardinals’ high hopes of College Football Playoff. Houston rush defense only allows 92.8 yards a game which is the 3rd best in the nation not to mention they have a defense ranking in the top 10 overall.
The Cougars are getting Louisville on a short week. Houston defeated Louisville just a year ago in their backyard and getting multiple touchdowns for a college football point spread seems like a winner.
Louisville Vs Houston ATS Pick
There is not a better balanced team both offensively and defensively in the NCAA this year than the Louisville Cardinals, and if the No. 5 ranked Clemson Tigers hadn’t held them on 4th down with 33 seconds left they would be undefeated.
The Louisville Cardinals are on track to the College Football Playoffs with one goal in mind, and that is to WIN the NCAA Championship through the College Football Playoffs. It is very difficult to find any weaknesses really, and it is even more difficult to see how this Houston Cougars team can even stay within a 3 touchdown college football point spread at this point.
