Louisville Looking for Eighth Straight win as Home Faves

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons will try to end a two-game SU losing streak on the road when they travel to Louisville on Saturday night to take on the high-powered Cardinals in a Week 11 college football matchup at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

Shark Bites

  • Louisville is 0-7 ATS in its last seven games at home after consecutive road games.
  • Wake Forest is 0-7 SU in its last seven games in Week 11.

The Demon Deacons stopped a two-game overall slide last week with a 27-20 victory over Virginia as 2-point home chalk, also improving to 3-1 ATS over their past four. Wake Forest's two recent road losses both came against ACC opponents. The squad is also winless SU in its past seven as an underdog of 30 or more points, scoring seven or fewer points in five of those contests.

The Cardinals are coming off their fourth straight outright win last week, a 52-7 rout of Boston College as 25-point road chalk, and have now surpassed the 50-point mark in six outings this season. Louisville is also undefeated SU in seven as home chalk but is just 4-7 ATS in its past 11.

Louisville is undefeated in three all-time dates with the Demon Deacons but has failed to cover in two meetings since joining the ACC in 2013. Previous matchups have been low-scoring affairs, averaging just 35.3 points per game, forcing the total UNDER in each.
