10* Saturday CFB HOU/LOU
Houston vs. Louisville,
11/16/2013 19:00 EDT,
Score: 13 - 20
Point Spread: +16/-115 Houston
The Houston Cougars battle the 19th-ranked Louisville Cardinals in an AAC bout at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.
Houston may have lost to UCF last week but that's not deterring us from taking them this week. The Cougars are a vastly improved squad and oddsmakers have been slow to catch on.
Rookie quarterback John O'Korn has been stellar this season, completing 63.1 percent of his passes with an outstanding 23:6 touchdown to interception ratio. Louisville's offense can score points but Houston will be able to keep up here.
Houston's offense has scored an average of 38.1 points per game this season, ranking 21st in the NCAA. The Cougars' scoring ability is the reason that they continuosly cash in week in and week out, putting together an 8-1 ATS record this year.
On the other side of things, Louisville hasn't been able to run up margins this season. The Cardinals last three contests have resulted in a 24-10 win over 5-3 Rutgers, a 34-3 victory over 2-6 South Florida, and a 31-10 win over 0-8 Connecticut.
The Cardinals lost a spring in their step when they fell to UCF a month ago. Subsequently, Louisville is just 1-4 ATS over their last five games overall.
Louisville is 1-5 ATS over their last six games following a win over more than 20 points.
Take Houston at our top rating.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
