How To Bet On Louisville Southern Miss – Louisville Just Too Much for Southern Miss

Louisville Cardinals @ Southern Miss Golden Eagles – Saturday September 29, 2012 8:00PM EST

The Louisville Cardinals have not started a season 4-0 since its 2006 Orange Bowl season. This year, Louisville hopes to surprise some of the college football betting experts by remaining undefeated for as long as possible. The Cardinals travel to Southern Miss where the Golden Eagles started the season off by losing three games in a row. The ranked Cardinals look to make quick work of the unranked Golden Eagles on Southern Miss turf.

If the sports betting experts did have a concern about Louisville in this game it would be the unexpected decline in the stats of Cardinals’ quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. His completion percentage is not where it needs to be and he threw two interceptions last week against Florida International. If the Southern Miss defense had a little more to offer, then there could be an upset in the making here. But Bridgewater should be able to pull it together enough to get the Cardinals past the Golden Eagles in this game.

Why Louisville Will Win

The people that follow the Cardinals are wondering if the team may be suffering from conditioning issues as Louisville has looked tired the last couple of games. Running back Senorise Perry had an average game against Florida International and failed to score a touchdown in that game for the first time all season. But Louisville still has some very potent weapons and has been able to overcome a lot of adversity this season. The 29-point second half the team allowed to UNC a couple of weeks ago and the 326 total yards yielded to Florida International would be concerns if the Golden Eagles had a more potent offense. But the betting experts don’t feel that it would be a problem in this game.

Why Southern Miss Will Win

Ideally, Southern Miss would like to establish a ground game and wear the Cardinals out by the second half. It is a game plan that UNC almost used to perfection against Louisville earlier in the season. But the Golden Eagles have not shown any ability to sustain a running game to this point. To make things worse, the Golden Eagles have looked soft on defense all season long. This would be the ideal game for Perry to get his legs back under him and start scoring points again.

The Bottom Line

These are two teams that are struggling, but Southern Miss has a lot of issues that are going to cause it to fall short in this game. Teddy Bridgewater just needs to be a bit more patient to find open receivers. But with the way that the Southern Miss Golden Eagles have been playing defense this season, Bridgewater and the entire Louisville offense should have plenty of time to establish a rhythm.

Pick: Louisville Cardinals
