Louisville vs Georgia Tech, Prediction & Best Bets: Cardinals Come to Play cover


We’ve got College Football under the Friday Night Lights tonight in Atlanta as the Louisville Cardinals take on the Georgia Tech Yellowjackets.

They are playing in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on a neutral site, but Louisville still finds themselves about a touchdown favorite tonight.

Let’s break this game down!

Louisville vs Georgia Tech Best Bets

The Cardinals play their first game under new Head Coach Jeff Brohm tonight, and they don’t face that tough of an opponent.

They are picked to finish 4th in the ACC thanks to QB transfer Jake Plummer. He has experience under Brohm and adding a couple WR transfers helps boost this offense.

Georgia Tech saw improvement last year, but still have a ways to go before they can compete in this conference.

I don’t think their defense is able to corral the Cardinals offense, and I think Louisville might blow them out of the water tonight.

I’m not scared of the hook, I think Louisville wins this by two scores easily.

The Pick: Louisville -7.5 (-110)

Player Props

Jawhar Jordan over 63.5 Rushing Yards (-124) Bovada

This is his first game this year, but Jordan is going to run all over ACC defenses.

In his final four games last season, Jordan has 145, 105, 73, and 117 rushing yards.

I expect Louisville to be ahead most of this contest, therefore relying on the ground game to milk the clock.

Even if he splits carries, I see Jordan soaring over 64 yards and might even get close to 100.
