Over/under 8.0 wins

Wins: Georgia Tech, Murray State, indiana, Boston College, Duke, Virginia Tech, Virginia, at Miami, Kentucky

Losses: at NC State, Notre Dame, at Pitt

A homecoming hire, a massive transfer portal class and a favorable schedule have Jeff Brohm set up for a memorable Year 1. Early games against Murray State and Indiana should allow the new offense to find its rhythm, and the Cardinals should be favored against their first two conference foes (Georgia Tech, Boston College). The midseason stretch will be difficult and I’m projecting Louisville will lose three tough games in a row before hitting its bye and returning with a manageable home stretch. With no Clemson, no Florida State and no North Carolina on the schedule, it’s easy to see how Jeff Brohm will be able to stack up ACC wins in his first year in the conference. Pick: Over 8.0 (+100)
