Louisville vs UCF Prediction: Spread
This game projects to be a high-scoring affair. Both teams are allowing over 20 points a game and the offenses have been scoring at a high rate. UCF is coming off of a victory where they posted 63 points. While they likely will not reach that number in this affair, the Cardinal defense should not slow them down all that much.
Louisville should be able to hang around and score some points as well against the UCF defense. Both of these teams are going to be aggressive on offense which should lead to a shootout with UCF holding on at the end.
- Free Prediction: UCF – 7
Louisville vs UCF Prediction: Moneyline
UCF quarterback Dillon Gabriel has impressed through his first two outings by throwing for 630 yards and six touchdown passes to open up the season. With a strong receiving core led by Jaylon Robinson and Brandon Johnson, there is no reason why this offense will not continue to excel in this game.
Louisville should be able to hang around, but unless they can slow down the passing game UCF will end up with the victory.
- Free Prediction: UCF -275, Louisville +220

With an exciting quarterback and receiving core, all eyes will be on the UCF passing game. Louisville’s secondary will play a massive role in this one if they can help cover receivers down the field. The Cardinals’ best chance to upset UCF is to limit them just enough on defense and score as often as possible to keep the pressure on.
