Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Louisville Cardinals will play the Kentucky Wildcats in a non-conference game on Saturday afternoon at Kroger Field in Lexington, Kentucky.

The Louisville Cardinals are 7-4 (4-4) this season after they defeated North Carolina State by a score of 25-10 in their last game. Louisville held NC State to only 291 total yards, forced one turnover, and added three turnovers on downs for the win. The Louisville offense is averaging 28.5 points per game with 217.7 passing yards per game and 196.5 rushing yards per game. Malik Cunningham (questionable) has thrown for 1,552 yards, eight touchdowns, and four interceptions, while also rushing for 561 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Cardinals this season. Jawhar Jordan has rushed for 555 yards and two touchdowns, while Tyler Hudson has caught 63 passes for 951 yards and one touchdown for Louisville. The Louisville defense is giving up 19.6 points per game and 347.2 yards per game.

The Kentucky Wildcats are 6-5 (3-5) this season after they lost to the Georgia Bulldogs by a score of 16-6 in their last game. Kentucky was out gained by a total of 363-295 and only went 3-11 on third down attempts in the game. The Kentucky offense is averaging 21.7 points per game with 218.6 passing yards per game and 116.8 rushing yards per game. Will Levis has thrown for 2,218 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions for the Wildcats this season. Chris Rodriguez Jr. has rushed for 784 yards and six scores, while Barion Brown has caught 41 passes for 560 yards and three touchdowns for Kentucky. The Kentucky defense is allowing 19.6 points per game and 321.2 yards per game.

Louisville is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games against the SEC. The under is 4-1 in Louisville’s last 5 games. Kentucky is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 November games and 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 games. The under is 11-1 in Kentucky’s last 12 games. The over is 6-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

Kentucky bounced back after a home loss to Vanderbilt with a pretty good effort against Georgia last week. Kentucky hasn’t been a high scoring team this season, but their defense has been able to keep them in most games. Louisville has won four of their last five games, but may be without their starting quarterback in this game. I like the under in this game, especially if Cunningham doesn’t play.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
