Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our school football selections on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and also that I shall detract to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the best teams in the country, and a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I endorsed the Titans. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it appears like it is my turn to get the gold wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days before this Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered at a solid -20 across the board at all of the best internet sportsbooks.
I like the Irish but youre currently leaning within this battle to the Cardinals. Apart from the venue is it that you believe Louisville could hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup a convincing win and IMO, it said a great deal about the management of both the Steelers and Titans. Lets move ahead to real soccer, where the matches count and will our records with this one.
Recall Louisville utilized to play against big-name competitions? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
However, just for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles in Appalachian State and will be out to alter the culture and win games. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a group which has the opportunity.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall since the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense, well, which makes me more nervous. You have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable inside their nest flying in the game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a group last year, where they went winless in ACC action coming off of a dismal record. This rebuild is comparable to seeking to turn it and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team which made it to the CFP last year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
So, my question is, just how can be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to discharge, designed to gain any traction against a swarming Irish defense? Especially when hes working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a brand new trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep up with this Golden Domers and I am desperate to the brand new wisdom and prodigious handicapping experience!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the bright side of sports betting, or youre just being the same shrewd a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers that are currently making college football picks decide on this. I am the first to understand Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 final season.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new coach brings a fresh attitude and with this being a national match, Satterfield will market his staff on building a statement. Louisville does have to hope never and the Irish will take them have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you said may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, whenever you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or Bama, it will take some time.
I was being a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping restart that you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be greater than last year but I would submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record rendered by an coach such as Petrino.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street is square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the people is correct, and also in this instance they definitely are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
