After a heartbreaking 92-94 loss to Syracuse Wednesday night the Cardinals are back in the Ville to take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. The Yellow Jackets coached by Damon Stoudamire are 10-13 on the season and 3-9 in conference play. They hold some notable wins such as taking down North Carolina and Duke at home earlier this year. But throughout this whole season the Jackets have seemed to struggle offensively, and playing in the Yum Center i'm sure it will hard for them to get the offense going tonight. Louisville has showed great improvements here lately on both the offensive and defensive side of the court, and with no injuries on either sideline I think we are going to see some great ACC basketball today.

Betting Odds

The betting odds opened with Louisville as the -1.5 point favorite and an over under of 153.5. The odds are nearly the same now with Louisville still the -1.5 favorite but the over under has moved slightly to 152.5. The Cards are -120 on the moneyline while Tech is even.

Final Game Prediction

Louisville looked really good Wednesday night at Syracuse. They rebounded the ball well, had several steals and blocks against the Orange and overall just looked like a well coached team. The only problem was the turnovers, the Cards had 17 turnovers that turned into 23 points for Syracuse. They have to do better on ball management. But in the end if Louisville can cut down on their turnovers and keep rebounding the ball well we should see a great game tonight. After all there is nothing like some Saturday night basketball in the Ville.
