CSZ Staff Predictions: Louisville vs Wake Forest

Jeremy Wahman


Wake 34 – Louisville 31

Wake Forest’s Rushing attack average 5.7 ypc and the qb has only thrown one int in the first 4 games of the year. Cards have one slow going half every game and normally it’s the opening half. This along with the lack of mistakes spells disaster for the Cards as Wake wins by a score in the last minute of the game

Louisville 31 – Wake 30

My preseason game by game predictions  have been pretty accurate so far. In those predictions I said Louisville would win this one 31-30. Currently the over/under is 61.5. This really makes me want to stay with my preseason prediction but no Braden Smith or Monty Montgomery and Louisville being a 6.5 point dog has me a little concerned. However, I’m not as confident in the Wake D as others. To me, bottom line is if Louisville can put consistent pressure on the Wake QB, Louisville wins. I expect see another huge game from Yasir Abdullah and Yaya Diaby… and a W.

Cards just have that game we expect one thing & it turns out another way! I just hope our defense will be better than their offense is.

Wake Forest. Louisville falls short after an impressive past couple weeks. Nothing wrong with losing to a ranked team on the road.

It’s hard to assess how good Wake Forest is considering that they have the 112th-best strength of schedule through the first four games. Regardless, it’ll be tough to pull out a win on the road against a fundamentally sound squad. Cards edge out the victory to extend the win streak to four.

Louisville 31 – Wake Forest 27

Wake has been the top team in the ACC thus far, but Louisville has just enough to hand them their first loss of the season. Malik adds another 4 TDs to his season total (2 passing 2 rushing).

Wake Forest 35 – Louisville 27 

If we see the team and play calling we saw first half against FSU, the Cards will earn a big road win. However, the less than inspiring 2nd half is what I think we will see. Slow start for the Cards digs themselves in a hole early. They make it close, but come up short in the end.

Wake 35 – Louisville 31

Road environment with a team looking for revenge. Wake Forest is more consistent and efficient than UofL. UofL will have chance to win, but will likely fall just short.



Wake 38 – Louisville 35

Cards have been playing good football for the most part and I don’t expect that to change. I just think they run into a slightly more well balanced WF team. The run defense will be a huge factor in whether or not the Cards can secure a W.

The CSZ staff consensus average is

UofL  28.4 – Wake 31.7

Las Vegas Line = Wake -6.5

Over/under = 61.5

CSZ staff predicted average odds = Wake -3.3  Over/Under= 60.1
