The Louisville Cardinals have lost the two most recent meetings with the Florida State Seminoles both straight up and against the spread, with each decided by more than 10 points.
Louisville is coming off a 62-28 rout of the Syracuse Orange as 17-point chalk last Friday behind Jackson’s five touchdowns, including four on the ground. The sophomore, who is also a Florida native, already has more than half the passing touchdowns he had all of last year, and his 318 yards rushing ranks him third nationally and is nearly double what Florida State’s Dalvin Cook has so far. Cook entered the season as a top Heisman candidate and has rushed for 174 yards.
With the win and cover versus Syracuse, the Cards improved to 2-5 against the spread in their last seven ACC games while the Seminoles are 5-2 ATS in their past seven overall on the road.
Another intriguing Top 25 matchup pits the Oklahoma Sooners (1-1) against the Ohio State Buckeyes (2-0) in Norman. The Sooners would be ranked higher than the Buckeyes had they not been upset by the Houston Cougars 33-23 as 13-point favorites in their season opener.
Ohio State is 2.5-point road chalk here, riding an 18-game road winning streak that has seen the team go 12-6 ATS as well. Oklahoma puts its seven-game home winning streak on the line while going 4-3 ATS during that stretch.
