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 on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and I will deviate to dip our feet.
It will most likely be the first and only time this season we do so, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the very best teams in the nation, plus a legendary football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I supported the Titans. Weve been placing wins on and back so it looks like it is my turn for the golden wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered in a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever of the very best internet sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre currently leaning in this battle on the Cardinals. Other than the place do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup IMO and a successful win, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move ahead to real soccer, where the games rely and so will our records with this one.
Remember those Thursday night games Louisville used to perform against big-name competitions? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and also the Cardinals were an golf club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win matches and to alter the culture and worked wonders at Appalachian State. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a significant time for Louisville, a group that has the chance.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall since the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 the defense which makes me more nervous. You have your Irish up, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 album this past year, where they went winless in ACC activity. This rebuild is akin to attempting to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team that 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 over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per match over.
My query is, how can be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, supposed to gain some traction against a swarming Irish shield? Especially when he is working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace and Im desperate to handicapping experience that is prodigious and your sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the glowing side of sport betting, or youre simply being the exact wise a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are making this is decided on by school football selections. Im the first to realize Louisville sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 last season.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A fresh mindset is brought by A new trainer on building a statement, and this being a game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust not 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 just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out 20 or more specimens. This defense you mentioned may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, whenever you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because although you have an impressive handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be greater compared to last year but Id submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their document rendered by an coach such as Petrino.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but at times the general public is right, and also in this instance they definitely are. Until when 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 rumble in Louisville.
