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 picks and that I shall detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our toes.
It will probably be the first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the greatest teams in the nation, plus a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I backed the Titans. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like it is my turn for the gold wreath, as I will accompany all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days before the Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 across the board at all of the very best online sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but you are leaning within this clash onto the Cardinals. Aside from the venue do you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes IMO and at least a convincing triumph, it said a great deal about the direction of both the Steelers and Titans. Lets move ahead to football, will our records with this one and in which the games rely.
Remember Louisville utilized to perform against opponents? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were fun games to watch and also the Cardinals were an club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders at Appalachian State and will be out win matches and to change the civilization. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. However , this is a moment for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity to begin taking steps.
I have read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the defense which makes me more nervous. You have your Irish up please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest, flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and he has a group last year, where they went winless in ACC action coming from a dismal album. This rebuild is akin to attempting to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team that made it to the CFP this past year and possessed 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 till they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense has been clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
So, my issue is, how is a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, supposed to get some traction against a shield? Particularly when hes working with a new coach and an offensive strategy that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep up with this Golden Domers and I am desperate for your brand new wisdom and handicapping experience!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the glowing side of sports gambling, or you are simply being the exact same wise a** you are. I will allow the SBR readers that are making school football selections decide on that. Im the first to realize Louisville was, however, 1-11 ATS and fully pumped last season.
But that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons. A fresh mindset is brought by A new trainer on making a statement and this being a game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust not and the Irish will take them for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with the blue and gold is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS, when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/can not recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take some time.
I was being a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping that was impressive restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville might be better but Id submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document rendered by an equally inept trainer such as Petrino.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but at times the people is right, and in this instance they certainly are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
