LOUISVILLE: Junior Lamar Jackson turned 23 rushes into 178 yards and a touchdown and went 13-for-21 through the air for 156 yards and another score in Saturday's 31-28 win over FSU. Jackson needed to come up big to snap Louisville's three-game conference losing streak, and while he didn't do much for the air, he absolutely demoralized the Seminoles with his feet (7.7 average). He had ground success from the jump, running down the right sideline for a 22-yard touchdown run on Louisville's opening drive. As of this writing, a whopping 84% of public bettors are backing the Cardinals on Saturday.
WAKE FOREST: Redshirt freshman receiver Greg Dortch caught eight passes for 125 yards in Saturday's 38-24 loss to Georgia Tech. The Demon Deacons held a 21-13 lead at the half, but managed just a field goal the rest of the way as Georgia Tech came back to win relatively comfortably. For his part, Dortch has logged 100-yard receiving efforts in two of his last three games. After a 4-0 start to the campaign, Wake Forest has now lost three consecutive contests.
OUR PREDICTION: The over has cashed in four of the Cardinals' last five conference games, is 5-2 in their last seven games overall, and is 12-5 in their last 17 games when they're coming off a win. The over is also 5-0 in the Demon Deacons' last five home games versus a team with a winning road record and has cashed in five of their last seven home games.
