Western Kentucky at Louisville Betting Preview and Pick

Louisville vs. Western Kentucky Betting Preview

Last year, the ACC found out what a lot of people around college football already knew: Scott Satterfield is a really good coach. In one season, Satterfield turned Louisville from a 2-10 team to an 8-5 team with a bowl win over an SEC team. His second season at the helm begins on Saturday as the Cardinals host the Hilltoppers. Tune in as the WagerTalk TV crew offers their Louisville vs. Western Kentucky preview, in addition to other college football predictions for this upcoming weekend.

Event: (405) Western Kentucky Hilltoppers +11.5 at (406) Louisville Cardinals (o/u 58)
Date/Time: Saturday, September 12 at 8:00 p.m. EDT

Louisville handled Western Kentucky fairly easily last year, but the Hilltoppers have an interesting transfer coming in at quarterback. Former Maryland quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome has been named the Western Kentucky starter, and his legs could prevent a problem for the Cardinals. Pigrome only completed 56.7-percent of his passes at Maryland, but he showed plenty of flashes with his legs. Louisville allowed Kentucky’s running quarterback Lynn Bowden to rush for 284 yards last season. Has the Cardinals defense improved in that department? Both teams return 16 starters from last year’s squads.

Trend of the Day, courtesy of The Gold Sheet:

  • Western Kentucky went 8-4-1 against the spread last season, including five outright wins as an underdog.
