Regulated online sports wagering arrives on Sept. 28, 2023 for those residents of Kentucky.  But for the time being, there are still plenty of options in the way of internationally licensed sportsbooks and local bookies.

The Louisville vs. Georgia Tech game is likely to attract a fair number of gamblers from the commonwealth.  The Cardinals are favored to win OVER 8 regular season games in 2023 and the line on this one is -7.5 Louisville on the road.

We get a number between the opening -8 and the current spread of -7.5, making for a line that is dead on the money.

Last year's Gambling911.com college football betting model gives a slight edge to the dog (Georgia Tech) in this one.

Both teams come into the 2023 season with new head coaches.

Brent Key begins his first full season as Georgia Tech’s coach after posting a 4-4 record as the interim last season.

Jeff Brohm, the former Louisville quarterback and former coach at Western Kentucky and Purdue, takes over in Louisville.

All eyes will be on Louisville WR Jamari Thrash, the Georgia State transfer after being selected a first-team All-Sun Belt selection in 2022 after catching 61 passes for 1,233 yards and seven touchdowns and closing the season with three straight 100-yard games.

While playing for California, Louisville's new QB Jack Plummer threw for 3,095 yards with 21 touchdowns.

Texas A&M transfer Haynes King will make his Georgia Tech quarterback debut after beating out Zach Pyron and Zach Gibson.

King threw for 1,579 yards and 10 touchdowns over 10 games, including seven starts, for the Aggies from 2020-22. A broken leg ended his 2021 season after only two games. He threw for seven touchdowns with six interceptions while completing 55.6% of his passes for 1,220 yards last season.
