Syracuse Orange Hosting the Louisville Cardinals Week 6 Odds and Betting Pick

Louisville Cardinals


Syracuse Orange
Friday, October 03, 2014 7:00 PM ET
Carrier Dome

Former Big East foes meet for the first time as ACC rivals when Louisville visits Syracuse on Friday night at the Carrier Dome. The Cardinals are 4-1 SU and 3-2 ATS already this season, coming off an underwhelming 20-10 victory over Wake Forest, proving that it's difficult to cover a spread as a 21-point favorite when you only score 20 points. The Orange, meanwhile, are 2-2 SU, 1-3 ATS, coming off back-to-back losses at home to Maryland and Notre Dame.

Two years ago a 9-0 Louisville team went up to Syracuse and got ambushed 45-26, losing outright as short road chalk.
