Louisville vs Air Force 12/28/21 Betting Prediction
Louisville is 6-6 and won 3 of their last 6 games. The Cardinals like to rush the football and average 211.3 rushing yards per game which is good for being ranked 20th in the league. The passing offense averages 238.9 passing yards per game. The offense as a whole scores 31.9 points per game while the defense allows 27 points. QB Malik Cunningham is both the team’s best passer and leading rusher.
Air Force is 9-3 and having the best rushing game in the country. The Falcons average 341.4 rushing yards per game. The team relies both on the leading rusher RB Brad Roberts and QB Haaziq Daniels to gain yardage on the ground. The team allows just 19.1 points per game. The defense is ranked 13th in points allowed in the whole country.
Louisville allows 163.5 rushing yards per game and I expect them to allow around 200 against a much better rushing team. Air Force’s rushing and passing defense is top 20 in the country and Louisville will find it very difficult to put any points on the board. Air Force should be able to cover the spread against an opponent that is leaky to allowing rushing yards.
