Louisville is an 18-point favorite over NC State

Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

Despite failing to cover the spread by, well, by a lot against Duke, Louisville has again been tabbed as a heavy favorite in a home game against an ACC opponent.

The Cards opened as a 20-point favorite for this Saturday's game against NC State, a line which has since been bet down to U of L -18. Louisville has yet to kick off a game as an underdog this season.

U of L and NC State have met six times, with the Cardinals winning five, including the last two years as members of the ACC. The Pack's lone victory came via a 31-24 triumph in the 2011 Belk Bowl.

Kickoff for Saturday's game is set for noon on ABC.
