Louisville Cardinals | ACC (Atlantic)


Conference Analysis
Win Division (+2400), Win Conference (+5000)
SSA Model Pick: Division (Low Confidence)
Lamar Jackson is gone and things will be different this year at Louisville. Brian VanGorder is the new defensive coordinator and will try to repair a defense that struggled at time last season. While the Cardinals are a long shot to take the Atlantic, at 24:1 it’s worth rolling the dice.

Win Total Analysis
7 wins (+105/-125)
SSA Model Pick: None
The most likely win scenario for the Cardinals this season is 7 and that’s what their win total line is set at. Bobby Petrion will be in a lot of close games this year and if everything balances out they should go 4-4 in conference and 3-1 outside the conference with the non-conference loss coming against Alabama week 1.
