NCAA College football betting fans know that they won the Big East title and the Orange Bowl. Football betting players know that last season Louisville beat West Virginia by ten points and they will have the chance to do it again this season with a probable Big East title on the line. College football betting fans know that the Cardinals return 14 starters and should be very tough to handle again this season. College football betting fans know that they averaged 37.8 PPG a year ago and if not for a loss to Rutgers would have gone unbeaten. Football betting fans see that seven starters return on offense including senior QB Brian Brohm (63.6% COMP, 3,049 YDs, 16 TDs, 5 INTs). College football betting fans know that running backs George Stripling (81 CAR, 459 YDs, 5.7 AVG, 5 TDs) and Anthony Allen (96 CAR, 406 YDs, 4.2 AVG, 15 TDs) also return.

College football betting fans know that on defense the team allowed only 16.3 PPG and leading tackler SLB Malik Jackson, returns. Jackson had 9 sacks and 57 tackles a year ago. College football betting fans know that the secondary is young so that could be a concern. The defense was superb last season but will be hard-pressed to match last season’s numbers. College football betting fans know that defense was a great strength for Louisville in 2006.
