Prediction: Louisville -1.5 (October 21st 2011)

Louisville gave a very good Cincinnati team all it wanted and more on the road last week because of its rock solid defense. The Bearcats, which rank 11th in scoring with 41.7 ppg and 44th in total offense with 421.7 ypg, only managed 26 points and 330 yards on the Cardinals. The ground game eventually allowed Cincy to come back and win the game. Fortunately for Louisville, Rutgers is one of the worst rushing teams in the country.
The Scarlet Knights ranks 112th in the nation with 91.8 yards per game on the ground. They rely heavily on their passing attack to move the football, which likely doesn’t bode well for them tonight. Louisville ranks 18th in the country in total defense with 303.5 yards allowed per game, and it has held opponents to only 202.8 passing yards per contest (38th FBS). If Louisville could hold Cincy down on the road last week, it can certainly slow down Rutgers at home tonight.
The Cards crushed the Scarlet Knights 40-13 last season, holding Rutgers, who ranked 4th in the league in passing, to only 181 yards through the air. I expect the Louisville defense to be the difference again in this year’s matchup. The Cardinals are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games as a favorite of 3.0 points or less, and the favorite is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in this series. Lay the number.

The UAB Blazers have certainly struggled this season at 0-6. This team is desperate for a win, and they’ve been playing like it for four straight weeks. I have no doubt they will be laying it all on the line again tonight against overrated UCF. The Blazers could not have started the season any worse, losing by a combined score of 88-10 in their first two games against Florida and Tulane. But they have looked like a much better football team the last four weeks, going a perfect 4-0 ATS. Their largest loss was an 18-point setback against Mississippi State from the SEC. They have been allowing a respectable 27.5 points/game over their last four despite playing some high-powered offenses with the likes of ECU, Troy and Tulsa.
The UCF Knights remain overrated after winning Conference USA last year. UCF is just 1-3 SU & 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall, with their lone win coming at home against Marshall by a final of 16-6. The Knights have been averaging just 15.0 points/game over their last four, and they simply do not have the offensive firepower to cover this big spread tonight. UCF has been way too hyped in the first half of the season, but they haven’t been able to live up to expectations due to having just 10 returning starters from last year’s team. UAB has 16 starters back from last year’s squad, and that experience continues to make them an underrated team.
UAB is 6-0 ATS versus good offensive teams – averaging >=5.9 yards/play over the last 3 seasons. The Blazers are 14-3 ATS vs. good teams – outscoring opponents by 10+ PPG on the season since 1992. The Blazers are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games as a home underdog. UAB is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 October games. Bet UAB Thursday.

Washington Redskins vs. Carolina Panthers
Week 7 NFL Pick: Carolina Panthers -3 (October 23rd 2011)
CLICK HERE FOR SUNDAY’S EXPERT WEEK 7 NFL PICKS
The Washington Redskins (3-2 SU, 3-2 ATS) have lost two of its last three games including a 20-13 loss to Philadelphia in Week 6 as a 3-point home underdog. The Carolina Panthers (1-5 SU, 4-2 ATS) have lost three straight including its 31-17 loss to Atlanta in Week 6 as a 3.5-point road underdog. The Redskins would seem to have a lot of things going for them with the Underdog in this rivalry compiling a perfect 9-0 ATS mark in the last nine meetings and the road team cashing in for gridiron gamblers in seven of those meetings. Nevertheless, I’m going to advise pro football gamblers to play the Carolina Panthers to get their second win of the season, based mostly on the fact that Carolina rookie signal caller Cam Newton is ten times better than either of Washington’s two mediocre quarterbacks, Rex Grossman or John Beck. I know the Skins are ranked third in points allowed defensively (16.6) but they’re also offensively-challenged in a big way as they average just 19.2 points per game offensively (24th). Carolina had not lost a game by more than seven points this season until their last contest and I believe they are overdue for an outright win after competing hard for head coach Ron Rivera in every single contest this season. The Panthers are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games and 7-1-1 ATS in their L/9 games as a favorite of 3.0 points or less. I like Cam Newton to lead the impressive Panthers to the SU and ATS victory in this contest against a Washington Redskins team that clearly isn’t as good as its record would seem to indicate.

Chicago Bears vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Prediction: Under 43 Points (October 23rd 2011)

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-2 SU, 3-3 ATS) performed just as I expected in Week 6, bouncing back from their Week 5 shellacking at the hands of revitalized San Francisco 49ers to beat New Orleans 26-20 and play out as a Push as a 6-point home underdog. The Chicago Bears (3-3 SU, 2-4 ATS) have been wildly inconsistent this season, alternating wins and losses over their last four games. The Bears got back in the win column in Week 6 by pounding the dysfunctional Minnesota Vikings in its 39-10 win in Week 6 as a 2.5-point home favorite to snap a four-game ATS losing streak. I’m going to get right to the point with this pick by saying the Under looks very promising with Tampa Bay holding its opponents to 20 points or less in three of their five games to date. The Under is 4-0 in Chicago’s last four games against a team with a winning record and 7-2 in their L/9 road games. The Under is also 5-2 in Tampa Bay’s L/7 home games as an underdog – and I believe this is a defensive battle waiting to happen.
