UK-UofL line is on the move

footballmoney

Earlier, Buzz Baker told you not to let your heart trick you into thinking that Kentucky truly deserves to be a 7.5-point favorite over the Filthy Cards, and apparently he wasn’t the only one thinking along those lines. After opening with the somewhat surprising spread of Kentucky (-7.5) for the Governor’s Cup game, it seems that the betting public has started to move that line a little bit closer to what most people expected it to be. The spread for Saturday night’s game has already shrunk to UK (-6.5), not even a day after the first line was released. This seems a little more reasonable, and I suspect the line will continue to get smaller as the week goes on. Not because Louisville has earned the action, but because after watching Kentucky for two weeks no one in their right mind could bet on them to beat anyone, let alone a team from a sort of major conference, by seven points or more.

The line should probably be somewhere in the three- to five-point range, as both teams are playing poorly but Kentucky is better defensively and probably a hair better overall, not to mention they’re playing at home. Also, these guys are Louisville’s quarterbacks:

Nevermind. 6.5 it is.

    The negativity on this blog around the football program is really starting to get to me. I know the team is not where we would like them to be, but a one point swing in the game’s line is no big deal. It does not warrant a post that implies, “that’s more like it… because we’re awful.” Just about every UK fan I know reads this site. If the posts are continually negative then that will just turn people off more and more. Dave Baker’s blog & the #Jennifer movement are perfect examples. You can’t be this negative all the time & not expect it to show in the fan base’s enthusiasm.

    You know things are bad for UofL when that guy in the middle of the picture looks like he might be the best choice. And 7.) is right- instead of concentrating on how this season has started, we should remember back to how last season ended. Oh, wait…

    Loiusville should be favored by about 3 scores. They have a Hall of Fame in waiting coach and our guy couldn’t coach Pop Warner. It’d be a major upset if we eek out a win. Poor, poor Joker.

    A “hair” better?

    I swear I don’t know where people get this idea that these teams are similar in depth and talent.

    9) Trust me I am no fan of Joker’s and I believe we should find his replacement ASAP but to say Strong is a “hall of fame in waiting” coach is just an idiodic statement. With that said… Lil bro – 21 jokers jokes – 17. We have better talent but Joker is simply a bad coach. Nice guy…bad coach.

    We are 2-0. Notre Dame is 0-2. Georgia is 0-2. Everyone needs to take a chill pill. We got better from game one to game two. Hopefully we will take another step forward this week and be 3-0 going into SEC play. These fans on here that speak so negative about our football team are not fans. They would be what you call fair weather fans. True fans have watched for years as we couldn’t win the close games, couldn’t compete against SEC teams, getting blown out by 73-10 or some crazy score.We still showed up for the games year in and year out and still had hope when the new season came about.Believe me, it could be alot worse. At least now we are winning the games that we are suppose to win and have competed against some of the best teams in the nation. Just last year, we almost beat the best team in the country that went on to win a national championship. Just last year we beat the East Division Champion.Don’t forget where we came from and give this staff a chance.

    i said before the season this game is -3 UK because of the home field advantage. i think overall we have a lot of weaknesses to their strong points and we have a lot of strong points to their weaknesses. this will be the worst two teams combined to play this rivalry game ever. bet on that.

    This picture is very biased. #5 is Teddy Bridgewater and he’s the most talented quarterback to play at either Louisville or Kentucky since Brian Brohm according to rivals.com

    1. Brian Brohm
    2. Teddy Bridgewater
    3. Andre Woodson
    4. Morgan Newton
    5. Mike Hartline
    6. Hunter Cantwell (Louisville – 2005-2008)
    7. Will Stein (Louisville – 2011)

    Everyone needs to calm down just a tad! Do i agree that our Offense needs to pick it up? Heck yes! Yet, I am going to look at the positives of this team! What are the positives? A DEFENSE that has been put under major stress with ill timed turnovers by the offense, but has not broken. A DEFENSE that has the 2 top tacklers in the SEC on it! A defense that is getting better. Part of the reason UK’s offense is not producing is because Matt Smith is not healthy, and has not played 1 minute! He is one of our senior leaders, and is the glue to our Offensive line, that is thought to be very good. We have a TRUE FRESHMEN starting in his place.
    The key to the UL game is to not have our secondary leave WR open down the field, like they have been doing. If we can get pressure on UL’s tiny QB, Stein, then we will not have to worry too much, but, if he is given time to get the ball to the only good parts of their team (WR core), then we might be in trouble.
    I just hope we can grab a lead coming out of the 1st quarter! It would be the first in a long time.
