Louisville has been a really good team at home, but the Cardinals are giving up a lot of points to a Virginia Tech team that is playing really well right now. The Hokies have covered in their last two on the road and won at Pitt as a 5-point dog. I think the Hokies have enough to keep this game competitive, even with the loss of Clarke.
