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 match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and also I shall detract to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will probably be the first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the best teams in the nation, and a mythical soccer 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. We have been placing wins back and on so it looks like its my turn for the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany each of the squares putting the thick lumber on a public street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered at a solid -20 across the board at all of the best online sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre leaning onto the Cardinals. Besides the place, why do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup IMO and at least a successful triumph, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us proceed to football, where the matches rely and so will our records with this one.
Remember those Thursday night matches Louisville used to perform against opponents that are big-name? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles at Appalachian State and are out to alter the culture and win games. 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 begin taking steps in the perfect direction.
I have read where the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the shield that makes me more nervous. Why you have up your Irish, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 album this past year where they went winless. This rebuild is like trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group which made it to the CFP this past year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the regular year and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging 33 points per match over.
My query is, just how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, supposed to obtain some traction against a defense that is Irish? Particularly when hes working with an offensive scheme and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace with the Golden Domers and Im desperate to handicapping experience that is prodigious and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to read in your last sentence you are coming over to the bright side of sports betting, or you are simply being the same shrewd a** you usually are. I will allow the SBR readers who are making college football picks decide on that. I am the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and sucked final year.
But that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons. A new attitude is brought by A coach and his team will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement this being a federal game. Louisville does have to trust never and the Irish will take them for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS, when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you said might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, whenever you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it will take some time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because though you have an impressive handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville could be greater but Id submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document rendered by an coach like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the general public is right, and in this case they surely are. Until next week once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
