Cardinals vs Golden Panthers Betting

The FIU Golden Panthers travel to Louisville on Friday to face the Cardinals with renewed optimism, both in terms of their solid play and Lousiville's suspect play.

The Golden Panthers are only 4-point underdogs on Friday and Louisville backers are alarmed after their team barely defeated little Murray State. It means either great chalk value for the big school or a chance for the Florida school to come big against a Big East foe.
