Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I shall detract to dip our feet into uncharted waters and also leave our school football selections.
It will probably be the first and only time this year we do this, as the previous week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the best teams in the country, plus a mythical soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a wager on the Steelers while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn for the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany the squares putting the thick lumber onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered in a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but you are leaning onto the Cardinals in this season-opening clash. Other than the place, why is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes at least and a win IMO, said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to football, will our records with this one and in which the matches count.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to play against opponents that are big-name? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games to see and the Cardinals were an club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out win matches and to change the civilization and worked wonders at Appalachian State. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. Nonethelessthis is a time for Louisville, a group which has the opportunity.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 the protection 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 cozy in their nest, flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team coming from a dismal album this past year, where they went winless. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and trying to turn it.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group 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 normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per game over.
My query is, how will be a quarterback like traveling who is 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 coach?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep pace with the Golden Domers and Im desperate for handicapping experience that is prodigious and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence youre coming around to the bright side of sports betting, or you are simply being the identical shrewd a** you are. I will allow the SBR readers who are currently making that is decided on by college football picks. Im the first to realize Louisville wasnt only 2-10, but 1-11 ATS and completely sucked final season.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A coach brings a new attitude on building a statement, and this being a national game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS, if dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping that was impressive restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, because Louisville could be greater than last year but I would submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable 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 gambling the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the general public is correct, and also in this instance they definitely are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
