got houston +17 -130 on sunday night, houston goes down by 5 vs UCF who are slightly better than louisville, some will think back to back tough games will effect houston in a negative way, I feel the opposite, this week will be very similar to last week for them in terms of competition, only they will be coming in even more motivated after the loss to ucf,  I feel  that this is a 1 score game either way COUGARS+17 in the best football play of the weekend

A lot of sharps love Houston +16.5.  Houston did a great job last week hanging with Central Florida and they should do the same with Louisville.

I am never taking Louisville again after that sh!tfest they turned in on Friday.  If they were in the SEC they MIGHT go 500.  Probably the 2nd most overrated team in the Top 20 behind Clemson.

Like Houston and Ucf this week. Both played very tough d and Louisville's d isn't as touch as central Florida. They should score some points in this one

Of which numbers do you speak?  Yes L'Ville has better statistics, that's why they are laying 16+ points.

Houston has been playing above the expectation all year as is easily deduced by their 8-1 ATS mark. I don't see this line as adjusting the expectations that Houston has consistently beat.

Surprised to see this line above 7, Houston probably won't win this one the road and coming off a physical game with UCF but they are capable of upsetting the Cardinals.  Even if they don't win, look for this one to be competitive.  Houston plus the chalk...and hurry, it this line will go down before game time.


Houston  +15'

All of you are on Houston, so looks like Louisville is the play here. Houston could lay down in this game. Sad, but true.

Big play on Louisville. For those who watched  Louisville vs UCF, Cards were up 28-7 until they lost momentum.Louisville is a very good team at home...especially when they play @9am PCT. Don't expect them to lay another egg here. Louisville dominates. Final 45-21.

Yeah it does look like line trickery. Who is more motivated though? Hou possibly?

Another stupid comment from MGM again. Your sportsbook should fire you and 86 you from all properties.

Last three games on the road Houston average score is 40 to 20 .

For L vile last three at home score was 43 to 16.

In two of these games each played UCF and Rutgers

Houston's average score was 31 to 16 

L vile score was 29 to 24

I'll take Cougs + 16

In 100% agreement here.  Why state what could happen.  A tornado could come in and wipe all the Houston starters from the field, too.  Fact is: Houston has covered all 5 road games (including 3 as road dogs) and Charlie Strong has shown a propensity to play a conservative style.  Even if Louisville is up by 20+ points they will not run up the score.  That's not there MO.  A late Houston TD could mean a back door cover but I actually think it will be far from a blow out and Houston has a chance, late, to win this game.  I'll take Houston plus the points.  Thanks vegas for this gift!

Going against the grain here. I am concerned about LV's defense, but I have to believe this may be a spot where H could a bit overconfident. Look for LVto have max effort from tip to finish. LV-17

Lville always takes their foot off the gas when they get a big lead. Coach strong plays not to lose which means I fade them a lot and win a lot especially against a solid team like Houston.

I don’t think he manipulates the outcome of their games, but Charlie Strong and his coaching style laying three scores against anybody with a pulse is always a good investment...


With that said, put me down for Houston plus the three score head start for a Nickel please.  Thanks!
