WKU Hilltoppers (0-0) at Louisville Cardinals (0-0)
Saturday, September 12, 2020 at 8:00 pm
Both these teams up-trended last season behind new coaches. This is a rematch from last year’s 38-21 U of L victory vs WKU in Nashville. It must be noted that the Hilltoppers owns a 5-0-1 ATS Game One record and have cashed 9 of their L/12 ATS as dogs of 12 or more points, and are a profitable 8-3 ATS with non-conference revenge. Meanwhile, the Cardinal are 0-4 ATS as hosts vs a side with non-conference revenge, and a lowly 2-7 ATS as chalk of 11 or more points. . Louisville is just 1-9 ATS as DD home fav against opposition that won 5 or more games last season.
The Hilltoppers' defense features defensive end DeAngelo Malone, the 2019 Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year. Malone helped the Hilltoppers limit opponents to 337.8 yards per game last season, ranking No. 30 nationally. Im betting on this veteran group to key on D, and for them to factor hugely into us getting the cover.
