While the total is a bit too high to rise to the level of premium play as punters’ criterion is the highest on the planet. But bettors still see at least 70 being put on the board. The chalk will get plenty. It ranks 94th nationally in total defense, allowing 425.3 yards a game, and 99th in scoring defense at 33.2 points per game. Louisville is no team to mess with. It’s No. 1 nationally in total offense (519.7) and leads C-USA in four offensive categories.
Louisville QB Stefan LeFors is 31st nationally in total offense at 239 yards per game. WR J.R. Russell leads Conference USA with 6.2 catches per game.
There are several systems that favor the over with varying parameters and Godspicks.com has no conflicting systems. TCU will get plenty of points as they get a full yard per pass more than the cumulative average of their foes. The Horned Frogs will get a boost through big plays, as tailback Lonta Hobbs and receiver Reggie Harrell are capable of long gains.
Golf – WGC World Cup
Bet365.com makes Sergio Garcia and Miguel Angel Jiminez favourites to take next week’s World Cup of Golf on home soil. The duo are 11/4 to see off 23 international pairings at Seville’s Club de Golf, including England’s Paul Casey and Luke Donald. Neither will be far away, but on an easy-ish course some of the others could be a factor at bigger prices. The French combination of Thomas Levet and Raphael Jaquelin look attractively priced at 14/1. Levet is one of the straightest hitters around, while Jacquelin has already produced some quality form in Spain towards the end of this season with a tied 4th in the Madrid Open in September. It is hard to believe that he is yet to win on Tour, but Levet could just be the partner to help him succeed.
