Louisville Cardinals vs. Wake Forest Deamon Deacons

College Football Week 7: Saturday, Oct 12th, 2019 7:30 PM EST TIME

The Louisville Cardinals are hoping to keep their winning streak going as they hope for another upset win as they head into Wake Forest to take on the Deamon Deacons

Losing Streak Over

The losing streak is finally over for the Louisville Cardinals as they were able to snap a nine-game ACC losing streak with a 41-39 victory versus Boston College. Even though the Cardinals got the win, they were unable to cover the spread as they needed kicker Blanton Creque to hit a 41-yard field goal with just over a minute remaining to get the win. On the flip side, the rushing game has been on fire as of late as running back Javian Hawkins rushed for 172 yards and a touchdown. This will be the first matchup against a ranked team this season as the Cardinals should have no problem scoring on the Deacons.

Looking deeper into this matchup, the Cardinals actually won the first for meetings in this series, but Wake Forest has won the last two games by 31 total points. This is going to be a high scoring game without a doubt as the Cardinals offense is coming off a 600 total yards performance in their last game. On the defensive side, the Cardinals are allowing 22.75 points per game.

Winning At The Top

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons are on a roll right now as they are winning at the top. Even though the Deacons are winning, they had a small bump in the road against the Boston College Eagles last week. Wake Forest went on the road and came away with a 27-24 victory against BC, but was outgained all game. It was a533-440 margin in favor of the Eagles as the Deacons turned the ball over twice in the afternoon. It was a blessing for the Deacons to get the win, as they are ready to turn the page and continue their winning ways. In the win, it wasWake Forest QB Jamie Newman who lead the team both on the ground and through the air. He threw for 243 yards and rushed for 102 yards on 23 carries.

Newman has been the key for this undefeated team as he comes into this game ranked No. 22 nationally with a 69.6 completion percentage. To continue with his stats, he has thrown for 1,521 yards and 14 touchdowns, with just three interceptions on the season. On the flip side, he has added 262 rushing yards. That offense is also rolling as a whole as they areNo. 1 in the ACC and No. 11 nationally with an average of 515 yards per game.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons have one of the best offenses in the nation and they should have a good showing against a weak Louisville defense. The Cardinals enter this game giving up an astounding 35 points per game and 313.5 ypg passing on the road this year. That's atrocious for a Power Five team. Now they are facing the league's top offense. With the Cardinals being 0-5 ATS in their last 5 meetings, give me the Deacons.

Prediction: Wake Forest -6.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Even though the Deacons have the best offense in this matchup, the Cardinals can still score often and fast. Expect the Cardinals to use that passing game against the Deacons, who have allowed 231 ypg through the air at home. The Over is 7-0 in Louisville's last 7 games in October as well as 4-0 in their last 4 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. Give me the Over here as it cashes with ease.

Prediction: OVER
