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 picks and that I will detract to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the very best teams in the country, plus a legendary soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. We have been placing wins back and forth so it appears like it is my turn to get the gold wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will accompany each of the squares laying the lumber onto a public road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days before the Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered at a solid -20 across the board at all the best online sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre currently leaning within this clash onto the Cardinals. Apart from the place, why is it that you believe Louisville can hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, IMO and at least a successful win, it said a lot about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us move ahead to real soccer, where the matches rely and so will our recordings with this one.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville used to perform against big-name opponents? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were fun games and also the Cardinals were an club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out to alter the culture and win games and worked miracles. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a huge moment for Louisville, a team which has the chance to start taking steps in the perfect direction.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the protection which makes me more worried. Please do tell why you have your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing flying in this match as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and hes got a group coming off of a dismal album in which they went winless in ACC activity last year. This rebuild is comparable to taking a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team which made it to the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per game.
My query is, just how can be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, supposed to get any traction against a swarming defense that is Irish? Especially when hes working with a trainer and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace with this Golden Domers and Im desperate to your sage wisdom and handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to read in your last sentence youre coming over to the glowing side of sports gambling, or you are just being the exact identical wise a** you are. I will let the SBR readers that are making school football picks decide on this. I am the first to understand Louisville sucked and was not only 2-10, however, 1-11 ATS last year.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A fresh attitude is brought by A coach and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement, this being a game. Louisville does need to hope they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and not have a lot of fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with the gold and blue is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you mentioned may improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, if you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take time.
I was being a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, because Louisville might be better compared to last year but I would submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their document rendered by an equally awkward trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the public is correct, and also in this situation they really are. Until next week when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
