Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and also that I shall detract to dip our feet.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the very best teams in the nation, plus a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. We have been placing wins on and back so it looks like it is my turn to the gold wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow the squares laying the heavy lumber onto a public street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days before the Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered in a solid -20 round the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but youre leaning onto the Cardinals. Aside from the place is it that you believe Louisville could hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes, Swinger, a win and at least IMO, said a lot about the direction of both the Steelers and Titans. Let us move to football, in which the matches count and will our recordings with this one.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville used to play against opponents? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders in Appalachian State and will be out to change the civilization and win matches. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. However this is a time for Louisville, a team that has the chance to start taking steps.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. The shield, well, which makes me more worried than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. You have up your Irish please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing flying in this match as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team this past year, where they went winless in ACC activity coming from a dismal record. This rebuild is akin to trying to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it into the CFP this past year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
My query is, how will be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, supposed to obtain some traction against a defense? Especially when hes working with an entirely new offensive scheme and a coach?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville will be able to keep up and Im desperate to prodigious handicapping expertise and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to read in your last sentence you are coming over to the bright side of sports betting, or you are just being the same wise a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are currently making school football selections decide on this. I am the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and fully pumped final year.
But that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, just like he gave up to the Atlanta Falcons. A fresh attitude is brought by A coach on building a statement, and with this being a match, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to trust that the Irish will take them and never have much fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using all the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you said might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even if you dont/can not amuse like Bama or Clemson, it will take some time.
I was being a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping that was impressive resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be greater than last year but Id submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document rendered by an equally inept coach like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the general public is right, and also in this situation they really are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
