NCAA Over/Under Win Total wagering for Louisville Cardinals

Louisville Cardinals

Louisville Cardinals Over/under 8 wins

 (Note: GT sports editor Mark Mayer will assess the 35 college football teams on the LVH sports book list of OVER/UNDER win totals leading up to the Aug. 30 season openers. Today, Louisville Cardinals).

Pleading the case:

• The Cardinals open with three straight home games and a roadie at Florida International so a 4-0 start is possible.

• Louisville’s toughest stretch on paper is consecutive road games against Southern Miss and Pitt, but there’s a bye week in between.

• The Cardinals have an early obstacle with the loss of second leading receiver Michaelee Harris for the season with a torn ACL.

• Louisville has become the preseason favorite to win the Big East Conference with the departure of West Virginia to the Big 12.

• The Cardinals lost just five starters from last year’s squad and figure to be improved offensively despite not having Harris.

Prediction: OVER 8. HC Charlie Strong is solid and should get the most out of his team. No reason to think a 9-3 season can’t happen.

Celebrating 40 years of GamingToday

So where is the starting point to define 40 years of GamingToday? Why, at the beginning, of course. Chuck DiRocco created the first issue of SPORTS FORM in May 1976 and the all black and white version promoted a full page, front page photo of Honest Pleasure as the favorite for the 102nd running of the Kentucky Derby.
