How the public is betting Virginia Tech vs. Louisville

Louisville and Virginia Tech will meet up on Saturday afternoon. Where do the public bettors see this game going?

NCAA Football: Louisville at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Louisville Cardinals will host the Virginia Tech Hokies on Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m. ET in a game that can be seen on ACC Network.

Louisville comes in with a 2-4 record and took down Florida State at home 48-16 last weekend. On the other side, Virginia Tech has a 3-2 record heading into its second straight road game. It lost 23-16 to Wake Forest last weekend.

Before the game gets started, let’s take a look at where the money is going among the sports bettors.

All odds and info were provided by DraftKings Sportsbook.

Point Spread

Virginia Tech is currently favored by 3.5 points on the road, and the Hokies are getting 55% of the bets in addition to 71% of the handle.

Is the public right? No. Louisville reached its low point on Oct. 9 with a sizeable loss to Georgia Tech. Since that game, the Cardinals nearly beat Notre Dame followed by a destruction of Florida State. This team appears to have hit his turning point of the season, and they’re getting more than a field goal at home. Go against the public.

Over/Under

The point total is rested at 67 with 54% of the bets on the over including 84% of the money.

Is the public right? No. I am more confident in the under than I am with Louisville covering the spread. I expect Louisville to control this game, and it has played well defensively the last two weeks. Take the under.

Moneyline

Virginia Tech’s moneyline odds are set at -148, while Louisville’s odds to win outright are at +120. Fifty-nine percent of the moneyline bets are coming in on Louisville, but Virginia Tech is getting 80% of the money on its side.

Is the public right? Louisville as a home underdog presents fairly good value on the moneyline. Let’s go with a slight risk and take the Cardinals to win it outright.
