North Carolina Louisville Betting Predictions – Cardinals Look To Improve To 3-0

Posted by Blake Frazier on 9/12/2012 6:30:56 PM

The No. 19 Louisville Cardinals are off to a strong start to their season with consecutive blowout wins, and will look to improve to 3-0 when they host the North Carolina Tar Heels in their third non-conference game of the season. The Cardinals don’t open the Big East portion of their schedule until October when they travel to Pittsburgh, but will play back-to-back road games following this weekend’s college football betting game. The early line for this game is only a field goal even though Louisville is coming off consecutive blowout wins, a sign this should be their toughest game yet.

The Tar Heels are headed in to the second of consecutive road games following a heartbreaking 28-27 loss at Wake Forest, and will be eager to avoid a similar result. North Carolina is still a growing program, but if they play like they did a week ago it will be another close contest.

Running backs AJ Blue and Romar Morris have each averaged at least five yards per carry through two games with four touchdowns, and the ground game will remain the strength of the offense heading in to this game. The Tar Heels do a lot of things right on offense, and junior quarterback Bryn Renner threw for over 500 yards and four scores in two contests. The key to this game will be avoiding turnovers and that includes Renner, who has two interceptions as well. North Carolina blew away Elon in its opener before a close loss on the road to Wake Forest, so they should be a confident team.

Louisville has won its first two games by an average of 23 points, but still head coach Charlie Strong has asked his young players for more consistency going forward. Sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has delivered through two games with 576 passing yards, two touchdowns, and no turnovers, and should see more of the playbook as long as he continues to protect the football. The Cardinals lost to North Carolina 14-7 at Chapel Hill last season, but this is a stronger roster that will have the benefit of playing at home. Strong has made his players work very hard over the last few months to get to this point, and now he will get to see if it was enough to get this team ready to move to 3-0 on the year.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The last home game before a three-game road trip and the chance to remain undefeated should be enough motivation for Louisville to play with a sense of urgency. This sports betting contest should stay close through the first couple of quarters, but look for the Cardinals to finish strong and set the tone for their next few games away from home
