You act like ESPN or SEC "homers" set the lines or something. Vegas bookies are the ones that thought it would be a blowout, and given that they make money hand over fists with sports betting, it's no surprise people in general weren't giving Louisville a chance, but any knowledgeable football fan who knows how bad Florida's offense can be and how good Bridgewater is weren't completely writing off Louisville.
