Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our college football selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and that I will detract to dip our feet.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this year we do this, as the previous week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the top teams in the nation, and a mythical soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while I endorsed the Titans. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like it is my turn to the wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will follow the squares putting the thick lumber onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days ahead of this Monday night affair, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 round the board whatsoever the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but you are currently leaning on the Cardinals. Apart from the place, why is it that you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes a triumph and at least IMO, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Lets move ahead to real soccer, so will our records on this one and in which the matches count.
Remember Louisville utilized to play against big-name opponents? They more than held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an golf club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out win matches and to change the culture and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. Nonetheless, this is a big moment for Louisville, a team which has the chance to start taking actions.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall as the direct running back. The protection, well, which makes me more nervous than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. Please do tell why you have your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much flying into this match as the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team coming from a dismal 2-10 album last year, in which they went winless. This rebuild is akin to seeking to turn it and taking a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group that made it to the CFP this past year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
My issue is, just how can be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, supposed to get some traction against a defense that is Irish? Especially when he is working with a trainer and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to be able to keep up and Im desperate to prodigious handicapping experience and your sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am happy to read in your last sentence youre coming around to the bright side of sport gambling, or youre just being the exact wise a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are making college football picks decide on that. Im the first to realize Louisville sucked and was, however 1-11 ATS final season.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new attitude is brought by A coach on building a statement, and this being a game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly using the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out 20 or more specimens. This defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it will take some time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping that was impressive restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, because Louisville could be better compared to last year but Id submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document left by an inept trainer such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the people is correct, and in this situation they surely are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
