Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football picks and then I will detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL discussion to dip our toes.
It will probably be the first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA soccer featuring one of the very best clubs in the country, and a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a wager on the Steelers while I supported the Titans. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it appears like it is my turn for the wreath, as I will follow the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a street favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to the 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 currently offered in a solid -20 round the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre currently leaning within this season-opening battle on the Cardinals. Other than the place, why is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, IMO and a successful win, it said a lot about both the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move to football, will our records on this one and in which the games count.
Recall Louisville used to play against competitions that are big-name? They more than held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an exciting club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out to change the culture and win matches and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. Yet , this is a time for Louisville, a team that has the opportunity to start taking actions.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall as the direct running back. The defense, well, that makes me more worried than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Why you have up your Irish, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much flying in this game since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and he has a group coming off of a dismal album this past year where they went winless. This rebuild is akin to attempting to turn it and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team which 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 over the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per game over.
My issue is, how is a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, designed to gain any traction against a swarming shield that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with a trainer and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will be able to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate to handicapping expertise that is prodigious and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to read in your last sentence you are coming around to the bright side of sport betting, or you are just being the identical shrewd a** you usually are. Ill let the SBR readers that are making this is decided on by college football selections. I am the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and sucked final year.
Just like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons, However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A trainer brings a new attitude on building a statement, and this being a game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to hope not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS when dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even if you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take time.
I was being a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping that was impressive resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be greater but Id submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record left by an inept coach like Petrino.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but at times the public is right, and in this instance they definitely are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
