Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our college football selections on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and then I will detract to dip our feet.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season game of NCAA football comprising one of the very best clubs in the nation, and a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a wager on the Steelers while I supported the Titans. We have been swapping wins back and forth so it appears like its my turn to the gold wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days prior to the Monday night affair, I see the lineup has jeopardized a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered at a strong -20 around the board at all of the very best online sportsbooks.
I like the Irish but you are currently leaning within this battle to the Cardinals. Besides the venue, why do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes, Swinger, at least and a triumph IMO, it said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Let us move to soccer, will our records with this one and in which the games count.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville used to play against opponents? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were enjoyable games to see and also the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles at Appalachian State and will be out win matches and to alter the culture. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a major moment for Louisville, a group which has the chance to begin taking steps.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense, well, that makes me more nervous. Why you have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team coming from a dismal 2-10 record in which they went winless in ACC activity this past year. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing 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 going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
So, my question is, how can be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, supposed to get any traction against a swarming shield that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with a coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate for your brand new wisdom and prodigious handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence youre coming around to the bright side of sport betting, or youre simply being the same wise a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers that are currently making that is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and fully pumped last year.
Just like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A new attitude is brought by A trainer on building a statement, and this being a game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to hope never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS, if dishing out more or 20 digits. That defense you said may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, if you dont/cant amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping that was impressive restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be better but I would submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record rendered by an coach like Petrino.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the people is correct, and also in this instance they are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week next week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
