Jeff Brohm vs Brent Key
The running back pair of Jawhar Jordan and Maurie are back. Jordan and Turner both rushed for over 300 yards last season. Ahmari Huggins Bruce is the lone starting wide receiver from last year. Louisville’s defense will be anchored by the secondary, with four starters back. However, the lineman Ashton Gillotte is the key returning player, as he led the Cardinals last season in quarterback sacks, with six.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets finished 5-7 in the ACC last year. Haynes King, a transfer from Texas A&M, is expected to be the starting quarterback at Georgia Tech. However, he must first beat incumbent Zach Pyron. Georgia Tech improved its offensive with the additions of running back Tre Cooley and wide receiver Christian Leary, both from Alabama. Dontae, the top rusher of last year with 420 yards, returns.
Georgia Tech’s defense allowed 189 yards of rushing per game last season. Georgia Tech added much-needed talent to its linebacker corps by using the transfer portal. LaMiles Bross returns after making 52 tackles and three interceptions last season. Yellow Jackets’ top pass rushers are expected to include D’Quan Douse, Sylvain Yongjouen, and D’Quan Douse.
Louisville has a brand new coach and a brand-new quarterback. Both are familiar with one another as Jeff Brohm was the Purdue coach of Jack Plummer before Plummer went to California. Brohm may take some time to get used to the Cardinals’ new offensive system, but they should score plenty of touchdowns against Georgia Tech’s below-average defense.
NCAA Betting Odds: Louisville Cardinals -8 ; O/U 50.5
Louisville was 8-5 in the last season and 8-5 against spreads, with a 4-9. Over/under. Jeff Brohm will return to his alma mater and guide it after successful stints with Western Kentucky and Purdue. He’ll bring his Air Raid system along for the ride. Louisville averaged 26.9 points per game while passing 205.5 yards and rushing 201.1 yards.
Louisville lost Malik Cunningham in the NFL but welcomed former Cal & Purdue quarterback Jack Plummer to the fold this summer. Plummer started his career with Jeff Brohm, the new head coach at West Lafayette. He then flourished in Berkeley, where he passed for 3,095 yards with 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Louisville Cardinals vs Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Betting Pick
Louisville will cause some problems for the ACC this season if Jeff Prohm’s Air Raid success moves south. Brohm’s team is expected to beat an inexperienced Georgia Tech squad. I think the Yellow Jackets’ approach will be pedestrian with a new quarterback. The Cardinals, however, will have an advantage with their familiarity with Brohm and Jack Plummer. Louisville is the favorite to win this ACC game. The top sports betting websites have predicted the Louisville Cardinals to win this exciting game.
