(111) Louisville vs. Syracuse (112)
PICK: 888sport @ 21 LOU (-114)
DATE: November 9, 2018 - 7:00 PM
STAR RATING: 10.0
EXPERT: Al McMordie
EVALUATION: Loss (-1140) - Final Score LOU 23 at SYR 54
At 7 pm, on Friday, our selection is on the Louisville Cardinals + the points over Syracuse. Last week, the Cardinals were shellacked, 77-16, by Clemson. That was the most points given up by an ACC school in 23 years, and was the 2nd worst defeat by a team in an ACC Conference game in the last 39 seasons. It was also Louisville's 4th SU/ATS loss in a row, and the 2nd straight game that Louisville failed to cover by 23+ points. This last fact will no doubt keep a lot of bettors away from the Cardinals side in this game. But it shouldn't, as road teams off back to back SU/ATS losses, in which they failed to cover by 20+ points, have actually covered the spread more often than not -- including 34-20-2 ATS vs. foes off a SU/ATS win. The Cardinals also fall into a 96-56 ATS system of mine which plays on certain teams off a SU/ATS loss vs. an opponent off a SU/ATS win. Take Louisville + the points. 10* play. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
