Syracuse faces Louisville on Friday, November 20th at Cardinal Stadium for a Week 12 NCAA football ACC matchup.

Syracuse had its bye week in Week 11 of the season. Syracuse is 1-7 on the year and 1-6 in ACC conference play, as it has been a disappointing season for Dino Babers and the Orange. Syracuse's last game was a 16-13 loss to Boston College on November 7th. Syracuse's defense held up well in that game, but the common denominator has been Syracuse's inability to put points on the board. Syracuse only scores 18.3 points per game, which is well below average in the ACC this season. Syracuse's defense has also struggled this season, allowing 31.1 points per game to opposing teams. Syracuse will look to break its losing streak with a road win over Louisville, but it will not be an easy task. 

Louisville is coming off a 31-17 loss to Virginia in its last game in Week 11. Louisville was plainly outplayed in its loss, and now Louisville is on a two-game losing streak (losing to both UVA and VT). Louisville is 2-6 on the year, as the hopes of making a bowl game are now over for the Cardinals. Louisville has scored 27.9 points per game, as its offense has actually done a decent job this season. The biggest issue for Louisville has been on the defensive side of the ball, allowing 29.8 points per game to its opposition. Louisville has allowed an average of 392.1 total yards per game as well. Louisville especially struggles in stopping the run, allowing almost 200 yards per contest to opposing ground games.

Louisville opens as 6-point favorites and the total is set at 58.5. I expect both teams to score a bunch in this game, and I think defense is thrown out the window. I like both teams to score at least 30 points in this game, therefore I like the over as a play in this one. 58.5 is too low for two teams that struggle in the tackling department.
