Louisville football: What’s up with the WKU point spread?

Coming off of its first win of the season, Louisville football is looking to start a winning streak on Saturday when Scott Satterfield and company travel to Nashville, Tennessee to face the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.

A decent indicator of how the Cards will fare is typically the Las Vegas sports books, who are almost always spot-on with metrics and predicting the outcome of games far before they happen.

Look no further than Louisville’s first game of the season, a home opener against Notre Dame. Given the Fighting Irish’s outstanding 2018, which landed them in the college football playoffs, one would think they’d be heavy favorites over a Cardinals squad that is breaking in a new system and coming off of their worst season in program history.
