Louisville opens as a 24.5-point favorite over Kentucky

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Louisville will be shooting for its sixth straight win over rival Kentucky next Saturday, and the people who keep the lights on in Las Vegas think the Cardinals might acquire the win relatively easy.

Despite the fact that 6-5 UK has already assured itself of going to a bowl game for the first time in five years, U of L has been pegged as a 24.5-point favorite over the Wildcats for the game.

Louisville has been favored to win all 12 of its regular season games, and this will be the 10th-time this year that the spread has been in double-digits.

The Cardinals and the Wildcats will kick off at noon inside Papa John's Cardinal Stadium on Saturday, and the game will be carried on ESPN.
