Houston has played very well this season as the team enters play with a mark of 7-2 with losses by one point to BYU and last week played a very good Central Florida team on the road and came fell short by only five points in a 19-14 defeat getting +13 ½ points. The Houston Cougars defense has stepped up the past few games by allowing four of their past five opponents 23 points or less including a very dynamic Knights offense a week ago. The Cougars have performed well on the road compiling a 4-1 straight up record. The team continues its good play off offense from seasons past as they put up 470 yards per game ranking 27th best in all of college football. Where we have seen improvement is on defense as the team guards the run well and allows a mere 22 points a game ranking 27h best in scoring defense in major college football. Freshman quarterback John O’Korn is completing 63% of his passes on the season for 2352 yards with 23 touchdowns and six picks. There was a lot of hype entering the season for this Louisville team. Teddy Bridgewater was a Heisman candidate but those talks have exited the mouths of pundits after a 38-35 defeat by Louisville at South Florida. Louisville with all the hype surrounding the team has been somewhat of a public team but that has not transmitted to positive point spread results as the team is just 1-4 ATS in their past five games and all games have been played against AAC conference teams like the game scheduled tonight.
With our college football pick for Saturday we will play on the Houston Cougars +17 points at the sportsbook.
