NCAA Football Betting: Louisville Cardinals vs. Memphis Tigers

If their last NCAA football betting meeting was any indication (a 56-49 Cardinals win in 2004), points will be aplenty Friday when the Tigers host the Cardinals.

The Cardinals were off last week, and their last game was a tough 26-21 home loss to Connecticut where they led most of the second half. Meanwhile, Memphis won the ‘Battle of the Bones’ game against UAB 33-30 last Thursday on a last second FG from Vinny Zaccario that gave Memphis bettors a push per the closing NCAA football betting line.

Two weeks ago against the Huskies, the Cardinals outgained their opponent by almost 230 yards and still lost the game due to turnovers. With three minutes left in the game and Louisville up 21-20, a first down would have probably iced the win, but Hunter Cantwell threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown costing the Cardinals the win.

RB Victor Anderson had a solid game though, carrying the ball 19 times for 100 yards and scoring twice in the loss. The loss now makes them 1-6 ATS as a home favorite for college football betting fans under Steve Kragthorpe. This week will mark the first road test this year for the Cardinals who were 3-3 ATS on the road against the college football line last year.

Former Washington State quarterback Arkelon Hall had a whale of a game in the Tigers’ win last week, going 18/28 for 209 yards and four touchdowns with only one interception. WR Carlos Singleton was the main beneficiary of Hall’s good day, catching five balls for 123 yards and a touchdown in the win.

The push now brings Memphis to an ATS record of 6-3-1 in Conference USA play for NCAA football gamblers since last season. Also of note, heading into this game, four of the Tigers last six games have easily gone over the ‘total’ per the NCAA odds. The NCAA lines currently show the Cardinals as 6.5-point road favorites in this game with a total of 56.

Whether you want to play the Cardinals (2-2 SU, 1-2 ATS) or the Tigers (3-3 SU, 2-2-1 ATS), the over or the under, gamblers agree that the best place to wager on college football this season is with Sportsbook whose great lines and hassle-free payouts make them the bettor’s best friend.
