LOUISVILLE over W Ken­tucky by 16

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Page 10 Www.playbook.com 1.800.playbook -

Now that Bobby Petrino’s meal ticket re­sides in the NFL (QB La­mar Jack­son), we’re go­ing to see just how the Louisville head coach per­forms with an or­di­nary hu­man at quar­ter­back. At this writ­ing, new field gen­eral Ja­won Pass has thrown for two touch­downs and three in­ter­cep­tions, although he did put up 252 pass­ing yards against Alabama. In-state ri­val West­ern Ken­tucky (well, they are ri­vals in WKU’s mind), is off to its first 0-2 start since 2011 when the Hill­top­pers ral­lied back to win 7 games by sea­son’s end. The Car­di­nals have cer­tainly con­trolled this se­ries of late, win­ning 5 straight games by an av­er­age mar­gin of 35.5 PPG. Our con­cern is a 1-6-1 ATS record as non-con­fer­ence chalk of 9 or more points, a con­cern be­comes a worry when we see West­ern’s at­ten­tion-grab­bing 10-1-1 ATS mark as a dog of 20 or more points. In the sta­dium where he­who’s-name-shall-not-be-spo­ken once owned the nam­ing rights, grab the points with lit­tle brother and set­tle in for a long one.
