Louisville Opens As 7 Point Favorite, Now At 3.5

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Cardinals opened as a seven point favorite before the money came in quickly on the Bearcats side. As of this writing the spread is Louisville -3.5.

That is a pretty quick adjustment in the favor of the Bearcats. What will be interesting to watch is whether the line budges from three for the rest of the week. For me that seems unlikely, I can't see this line inching any closer to being a pick em. I think there is a good chance UC wins this game, but I don't see the line moving at all.

It would take an injury from Teddy Bridgewater at the very least to shake up this line any more. There are no over unders out, or rather there are none listed on the ESPN page. I know there are other sites, and that one of them has the over / under. But I don't bet that often, so I don't go looking for this stuff.
