Kentucky has some pretty fierce football fans, both professional and college football. So, it makes sense that Kentuckians are crazy about the Louisville Cardinals. If you are looking to place your bets on the Louisville Cardinals, this is the guide to help you.
The Louisville Cardinals are the college football team from the University of Louisville in Kentucky. The team plays their home games at Cardinal Stadium in Louisville, Kentucky. The Louisville Cardinals compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association in the Football Bowl Subdivision. The team competes in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The team played its first season over a hundred years ago, back in 1912. But, the team has not always been competing as due to financial difficulties they were unable to compete in the 1917, 1918, 1919, 1920, and 1921 seasons. The team has earned 8 conference titles as well as one division title in its time.
The Louisville Cardinals have also produced one Heisman Trophy winner in its time. This Heisman Trophy winner is Lamar Jackson who earned the trophy in 2016. At this time, the head coach of the Louisville Cardinals is Scott Satterfield and the athletic director is Vince Tyra.
The team has of course faced some rivalries in their time. These rivalries are with Kentucky, Florida State, Virginia, and Cincinnati.
A wager type you will see fairly often when it comes to betting on college football is a moneyline bet. A moneyline bet asks the person betting to attempt to choose the winner of any given sporting faceoff. Next, you will see an example of what a moneyline bet could look like in practice:
Louisville Cardinals: -114
Kentucky Wildcats: +114
Using this example, the team that seems like it will win is the Louisville Cardinals, according to the team’s odds of -114. These odds illustrate that for every $1 the bettor is hoping to win, they would need to bet $1.14, to wager $114 to earn $100. Also using the odds in this example, the team not likely to win in this sporting matchup is the Kentucky Wildcats with odds of +114. The team’s odds illustrate that for every $1 wagered, the bettor could earn $1.14 and would need to bet $100 to win $114.
