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 picks on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and I shall deviate to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the very best clubs in the country, and a legendary football 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 with a bet about the Steelers while the Titans were supported by me. Weve been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn to get the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days before the Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered at a solid -20 round the board whatsoever of the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but you are currently leaning onto the Cardinals in this season-opening battle. Other than the venue is it that you think Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, a triumph and IMO, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us move ahead to football, so will our records with this one and in which the games count.
Remember those Thursday night matches Louisville utilized to play against big-name opponents? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But such as 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 will be out win games and to change the culture and worked wonders. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. However , this is a huge moment for Louisville, a team that has the chance to begin taking steps in the perfect direction.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall as the lead running back. The protection which makes me more worried than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Why you have your Irish up please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group coming from a dismal album last year, in which they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to seeking to turn it and taking a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group which made it into the CFP last 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 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per match.
My question is, how can be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, designed to gain any traction against a swarming defense? Especially when he is working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep up and I am desperate for your ancestral wisdom and prodigious handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to read in your last sentence you are coming on to the sunny side of sport gambling, or youre simply being the exact identical wise a** you are. I will let the SBR readers who are currently making college football picks decide on this. Im the first to understand Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last season.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons, However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A coach brings a new mindset and with this being a federal match, Satterfield will sell his staff on creating a statement. Louisville does have to hope never and the Irish will take them have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out more or 20 specimens. This defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, whenever you dont/cant recruit like Bama or Clemson, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville could be better but Id submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document rendered by an coach like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road is square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the general public is correct, and also in this case they certainly are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
