The Kentucky Wildcats visit the Louisville Cardinals for their final game of the regular season.
The Kentucky Wildcats enter this game off a huge blowout victory against the New Mexico Lobos 56-16. Will Levis had a huge day under center, completing 20 of 31 pass attempts for 419 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.
On the season, the Wildcats are 20th in the nation and allowing just 335.5 yards per game. The Wildcats are averaging 231.9 yards passing and 191.9 yards rushing along with 31.6 points per game.
Will Levis is completing 202 of 307 passes for 2,444 yards, 23 touchdowns and 12 interceptions while adding 274 rushing yards and five scores.
In the 62-22 win, QB Malik Cunningham completed 18 of 25 pass attempts for 303 yards and five touchdowns while adding 11 carries for 204 yards and two scores. The Louisville Cardinals outgained Duke 687-458 in the victory.
Louisville is averaging 32.9 points and 459.6 yards per game. Louisville's defense is allowing 24.7 points and 392.6 yards per contest.
Malik Cunningham has completed 184 of 296 pass attempts for 2,589 yards, 18 touchdowns and five interceptions while adding 150 carries for 933 yards and another 18 scores.
The Kentucky Wildcats are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win and are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The Wildcats are also 9-2 ATS in their last 11 non-conference games.
The Louisville Cardinals are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. SEC and are 11-26-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Cardinals are 4-12-1 ATS in their last 17 games following a straight up win of more than 20 points.
The over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings and is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Louisville.
I like for the Cardinals to cover the spread in this game as they have the more fluid offense in this matchup. Although the Wildcats are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Louisville, the Cardinals should be motivated to change that trend.
