The air was let out of the Louisville hype balloon last weekend. Let’s see how they bounce-back.
Pitt has one of the best defenses in the nation, especially up front. Louisville has an offense that should be able to score on anyone.
I saw this line at -9.5 in some places but I think that might have been an error. It has quickly corrected itself.
The Cardinals’ chance at a special season ended quickly when they couldn’t slow down Miami in prime time last week, losing at home as a small favorite.
They were able to move the ball but hopes that the defense had improved from last year were pretty much dashed as they surrendered 47 points.
Now it is on Micale Cunningham et al to solve a Pitt defense that might be the best in the ACC. One thing about Louisville is that they can be very balanced.
This is a solid matchup for the Cardinals because even though their defense can be lame the Pitt offense is not much to fear.
The ceiling of this season has been lowered but Louisville is a very good team and they are a live dog on the road.
It is the same old Panthers. That defense looks very good but Kenny Pickett and the offense leaves you wondering about this team.
In this case, that defense will really be tested more than Austin Peay and Syracuse could. It will be a true test of how far they can take the Panthers.
For Pitt to have a really good season they have to start rushing the ball better. I know they want more out of Pickett but forcing that could be a mistake.
They are a home favorite here, largely on the basis that Louisville could not come through last week. If they had it would likely be a different story.

Free Week 4 NCAA Football Pick
This looks like an upset special to me. After last week’s loss to Miami I elevated the Hurricanes more than I lowered the Cardinals. I already knew their defense was bad.

I suppose the safe thing is to take the points but I strongly encourage you to look at the money line here too. Build that bankroll with some extra value where you can.
Pitt will slow down the Cardinals a little but their own offense is not going to be enough to get the win at home.
