LOUISVILLE over Syra­cuse by 6

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

If you see La­mar Jack­son lick­ing his chops, it’s prob­a­bly a re­sult of the game tape that saw a Syra­cuse stop-unit yield 734 yards to Wake For­est and not the free Papa John’s weekly de­liv­ery. Re­mem­ber, it was only a year ago that Jack­son and com­pany put up a 62 spot in the Car­rier Dome – Dino Babers’ first con­fer­ence game with the Or­ange. How­ever, Dino may also be wa­ter­ing at the mouth as his 21st-rated of­fense (472 YPG) gets the ben­e­fit of fac­ing a Louisville de­fense that has sur­ren­dered sea­son-high yardage in three of their last five games. And though the ‘Cuse is just 1-5 SUATS in this matchup of late, they just may catch the Red­birds in the right place at the right time as the Car­di­nals are an un­fath­omable in LHG’s since 2008. And with the 4-6 Or­ange in des­per­a­tion mode, we’re not about to count out Babers – not with a ca­reer 10-4-1 ATS mark on the con­fer­ence high­way, in­clud­ing against foes off a SUATS win. That has us strongly be­liev­ing the Or­ange de­liver the cover today at Papa John’s.
