Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our school football selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and I shall detract to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the best clubs in the country, and a mythical soccer 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 backed by me. We have been placing wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn to the wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will accompany the squares putting the thick lumber onto a public road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days prior to the Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point about the preferred, starting Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now available at a strong -20 throughout the board whatsoever of the best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but youre currently leaning on the Cardinals. Besides the place, why is it that you think Louisville will hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, a successful triumph and IMO, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us move ahead to football, where the games rely and will our recordings with this one.
Recall Louisville used to perform against competitions? They held their engineered and own several upsets. These were fun games and the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out to alter the civilization and win games and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a big time for Louisville, a team which has the chance to begin taking steps in the right direction.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall since the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense that makes me more worried. Why you have up your Irish, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest, flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and hes got a team coming from a dismal album where they went winless last year. This rebuild is comparable to taking a hot air balloon and trying to turn it.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group that made it into 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 in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
My question is, just how can be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to discharge, designed to gain some traction against a swarming Irish defense? Particularly when he is working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a coach?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate to the ancestral wisdom and prodigious handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence you are coming on to the sunny side of sport betting, or you are simply being the identical wise a** you are. I will allow the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by school football picks. I am the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and fully pumped final season.
However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons. A coach brings a fresh attitude on building a statement and with this being a game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS if dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, if you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it is going to take some time.
I was being a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville could be better but Id submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record left by an equally awkward coach like Petrino.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the road is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the public is right, and in this instance they definitely are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
