Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will detract to dip our feet and then leave our school football picks.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer featuring one of the best teams in the country, and 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 the Titans were endorsed by me. We have been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like it is my turn to get the gold wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany all the squares laying the lumber on a road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days before the Monday night affair, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered in a solid -20 throughout the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but you are currently leaning in this season-opening clash to the Cardinals. Besides the venue do you think Louisville can hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, a win and at least IMO, it said a great deal about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Let us proceed to football, where the games rely and so will our recordings with this one.
Remember Louisville utilized to perform against competitions? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles at Appalachian State and are out win matches and to alter the culture. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. Nonetheless, this is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the chance.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the shield, well, that makes me more nervous. Why you have up your Irish, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and hes got a group coming from a dismal album this past year where they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it to the CFP this past year and owned only 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 fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per match over.
My issue is, just how can be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, designed to get any traction against a swarming shield? Especially when hes working with a new coach and an offensive strategy that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep up with this Golden Domers and I am desperate to your ancestral wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming on to the sunny side of sport betting, or youre simply being the exact wise a** you are. I will let the SBR readers who are making school football selections decide on this. Im the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and fully pumped last year.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new trainer brings a new attitude on creating a statement and this being a national match, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to hope the Irish will take them for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, and when dishing out 20 or more specimens, a ATS. This defense you mentioned may improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even when you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it will take time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping that was impressive resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville might be greater than last year but Id submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document left by an trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the people is right, and also in this instance they are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
