Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our school football picks on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and also that I shall detract to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will probably be the very first and only time this year we do this, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA football comprising one of the very best teams in the nation, plus a legendary soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I supported the Titans. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like it is my turn to the gold wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow the squares putting the thick lumber on a road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days prior to the Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered in a solid -20 round the board at all the very best online sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning to the Cardinals although doug, I love the Irish. Besides the place, why do you believe Louisville will hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup and a successful win IMO, it said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets move ahead to real football, in which the matches count and will our records on this one.
Recall those Thursday night matches Louisville used to perform against competitions that are big-name? They more than held their own and engineered many upsets. These were fun games and the Cardinals were an golf club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and are out win matches and to alter the culture. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a team which has the chance to start taking actions.
Ive read where the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall since the lead running back. The shield, well, that makes me more worried than having 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 since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team coming off of a dismal record last year in which they went winless. This rebuild is akin to taking a hot air balloon and trying to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it into the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per game over.
My query is, just how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, supposed to obtain any traction against a defense? Especially when he is working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a new coach?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate to the brand new wisdom and prodigious handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence you are coming on to the sunny side of sports betting, or youre just being the exact wise a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are currently making that is decided on by college football selections. Im the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 last year.
But that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons. A coach brings a fresh mindset on building a statement and this being a national match, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to trust the Irish will take them for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and when dishing out 20 or more digits, a ATS. This defense you said may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even if you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it will take some time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville could be better compared to last year but I would submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an coach 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 betting the heavy road chalk, but at times the people is correct, and in this situation they certainly are. Until next week once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
