College Basketball Betting Odds Louisville Cardinals vs Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Free Pick

Monday night college Basketball and we will see the Louisville Cardinals travel to McCamish Pavilion to take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. The game has a start time of 7:00 pm (Eastern) and will be televised on ESPN. Current Vegas betting odds have Louisville listed as 6 point favorites, while the total is set at 125.5. 

Analysis: The Louisville Cardinals come in off a hard fought 55-53 home win over Miami, which snapped their 2 game losing streak. The win now has Louisville at 21-6 overall and 9-5 in the ACC, while going 5-3 on the road so far. The Cardinals have gone 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 Monday games, but just 5-11-2 ATS in their last 18 games following a S.U. win. Louisville has been a good offensive team, as they come in ranked 100th in scoring (70.5 ppg), 204th in shooting (43.0%), 314th in 3 point shooting (30.4%) and 249th in FT shooting (66.9%). Defensively the Cardinals have been excellent, ranking 22nd in points allowed (59.1 ppg),11th in defensive FG% (37.9%) and 13th in 3 point defense (29.2%). 

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have not had a very good year in the ACC as they come in with a 3-12 record, that includes a 29 point road loss at North Carolina on Saturday. Overall the Jackets are just 12-15 on the season, including posting a 7-6 mark at home. Georgia Tech has gone 11-3-1 ATS in their last 15 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600 and 18-8-1 ATS in their last 27 games following a ATS loss. The Jackets have not been a very good offensive team this year, ranking 261st in scoring (64.2 ppg), 277th in shooting (41.3%), 343rd in 3 point shooting (28.1%) and 279th in FT shooting (66.0%). Defensively the Jackets have been decent this year, ranking 120th in points allowed (64.2 ppg), 213th in defensive FG% (43.6%) and 54th in 3 point defense (31.4%). 

Pick: Going with the Under here. Georgia Tech is not a team that will speed up the game and even when they try and score it isn't a whole lot as they are a terrible shooting team. That will not improve tonight vs a Louisville defense that has allowed just 59.1 ppg on 39.7% shooting for the year overall and just 60.8 ppg on 40% shooting in their last 5 games. Louisville does average 70 ppg, but they are not a good shooting team (43%) and Georgia Tech has played solid defense at home where they have allowed just 60.2 ppg on 40% shooting. Both teams are horrible from long range and at the charity stripe, so not a lot of extra points in those two areas. The Under is 6-1 in Louisville's last 7 vs the ACC and 12-3 in Georgia Tech's last 15 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of greater than .600. Two bad shooting teams vs good defenses in a slow paced game should keep this one at 118 points or less.
