Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our college football selections on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and I shall detract to dip our feet.
It will probably be the first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the greatest teams in the nation, plus a mythical football 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 with a wager on the Steelers while the Titans were supported by me. We have been placing wins on and back so it appears like its my turn to the wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will follow each of the squares putting the thick lumber onto a public road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered at a solid -20 round the board at all of the best internet sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but you are leaning in this battle on the Cardinals. Besides the place, why do you think Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup and a convincing triumph IMO, it said a lot about the Steelers and Titans management. Lets proceed to real football, so will our records on this one and where the games count.
Recall all those Thursday night matches Louisville used to perform against big-name competitions? They held their engineered and own several upsets. These were fun games to see and also the Cardinals were an exciting club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win matches and to change the civilization and worked wonders in Appalachian State. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. Nonetheless, this is a big time for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity to start taking actions in the right direction.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense which makes me more nervous. You have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest, flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and he has a group coming from a dismal album in which they went winless last year. This rebuild is akin to seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team that made it to the CFP this past year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
So, my issue is, how can be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, designed to gain any traction against a swarming defense that is Irish? Especially when he is working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will be able to keep pace with this Golden Domers and I am desperate for prodigious handicapping expertise and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to read in your last sentence you are coming on to the sunny side of sports gambling, or you are just being the identical shrewd a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are currently making college football picks decide on that. I am the first to understand Louisville was, however, 1-11 ATS and sucked final year.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons, but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new coach brings a fresh attitude and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement, with this being a game. Louisville does have to trust they will not be taken by the Irish and not have much fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly with gold and the blue is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also if dishing out 20 or more specimens, a mere 7-9-1 ATS. This defense you said might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, when you dont/can not amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it will take time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville might be greater but I would submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an coach such as Petrino.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the public is correct, and in this situation 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 squint at Louisville.
