---Louisville Cardinals -3---

This game may mean more to the Bearcats, but Louisville is the better team and when it comes to big games my money is on the future NFL quarterback in the Cardinals Teddy Bridgewater. Cincinnati comes in on an impressive six-game winning streak, but outside of last week's win over Houston they haven't played anybody during that stretch. You also have to keep in mind that the Cougars came into that game off back-to-back heartbreaking losses to UCF and Louisville that completely ruined any hope of winning the AAC and playing in a BCS bowl.

I think there's too much focusing being paid to what the Bearcats have done of late and not that the fact that this team lost to Illinois by 28 points and lost to a South Florida team that has won two games all season. Both teams come in featuring high-powered pass attacks and top 10 ranked defenses. However, the Bearcats secondary has been exposed on several occasions. They allowed 300+ passing yards to both Illinois and Connecticut and 403 to SMU. Louisville's defense has allowed a single opponent all season to throw for more than 250 yards.

I believe that due to the Cardinals coming in having lost three straight and five of six against the spread, they are showing some big time value laying just a field goal. Louisville is 10-1 ATS in their last 11 road games following a loss against the spread and a perfect 6-0 ATS when they come in with 2 or more consecutive losses against the spread. BET THE CARDINALS -3!
