You shouldn't expect Kentucky to be favored, but 16.5 points is A LOT of points.  Is it fair? Kentucky hasn't beaten Louisville in five years.  During that losing streak Louisville's average margin of victory has been 11.4 points.  The Cards will be a preseason Top 25 team with Lamar Jackson at quarterback, a person that I will not believe can be stopped until I see it.  Even when the Cats built up big leads in the last two meetings, they found a way to fall apart. Even though 16.5 is a lot of points, finding a good reason why Kentucky shouldn't be a big underdog is quite the challenge.  Even so, I'm sure plenty of people are putting dollars down for the Cats.
