With the college basketball season tipping off in early November, teams across the country have already begun their preseason prep, just as online sports betting launches in Kentucky on Thursday, Sept. 28. 

The Louisville Cardinals enter the 2023-24 season, Year 2 under coach Kenny Payne, with hopes of rebounding from one of the worst seasons in the history of the program in Payne’s first year on the sidelines. The Cards, who released their ‘23-24 schedule earlier this week, are expected to be much more competitive than last year’s 4-28 (2-18 ACC) team, but oddsmakers remain skeptical of whether they’ll be competitive in the ACC.

Louisville Cardinals Basketball 2023-24 Futures Odds

Entering the 2023-24 season, Louisville is a massive longshot to bring home any titles. This team’s national championship, Final Four, and ACC championship odds are below. A strong start to the season could quickly change these prices, but right now, the Cardinals are understandably not considered a contender in either the ACC or the national championship picture.


Louisville Cardinals Basketball 2023-24 Game Odds

No odds are currently available for Louisville’s regular season opener against UMBC at home on Monday, Nov. 6, at 7 p.m. ET on the ACC Network. Check back on this page throughout the season for live game odds once sportsbooks make those available.

Are There Restrictions in Kentucky on Betting on College Sports?

No, fans can bet on college sports just as easily in Kentucky as they can wager on the multitude of other available sports and leagues. While some states, like New Jersey and New York, have some restrictions on college sports betting, bettors in Kentucky are able to bet on the state’s college football and basketball teams with no restrictions.
