Louisville vs Mississippi State Predictions: We could be seeing Cardinals’ QB Lamar Jackson for the final team as a collegiate signal caller and we expect a huge game from the 2016 Heisman winner, whether he’s coming back to school or not. Jackson’s numbers his junior season surpassed those of his Heisman winning campaign. After another season of taking care of the football, Jackson has 55 TD passes and just 15 INTs the last two seasons combined. Obviously, defenses have to worry about his running ability, also, and there’s no way, not even with a month to prep, that most teams can account for his dual-threat capability. Mississippi State will also have to prepare for Jackson’s talented and deep list of targets. Louisville has six players with more than 20 receptions on the season and five of those six average 11 to 16.5 yards per catch. The Bulldogs have relied on their defense this season and one reason has been due to a lack of a passing game on offense. MSU ranks 109th in yards passing per game and that was with a healthy Nick Fitzgerald behind center. Fitzgerald will miss the bowl game (knee) and the next best passer has completed just 21 of 46 attempts this season. MSU will have to rely on RB Aeris Williams, but that’s no way to play successful “keep up” with the Cardinal offense. Finally, Mississippi State lost HC Dan Mullen to Florida. We like the hiring of Penn State OC Jim Moorhead, but he’s not going to help them here.

Louisville vs Mississippi State Odds: Louisville -6.5 and over/under of 63

TaxSlayer Bowl Prediction: We expect a big performance from the Louisville offense and we’ll lay the points.

Besides having a jockey in the family, Scott was also surrounded by trainers and starters.

Scott is the only handicapper to advance to three straight Finals in the Station Casinos Football Invitational. In fact, he's the all-time Station Casinos Win Champion.
