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 game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and also I will detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will probably be the first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the best clubs in the country, plus a legendary soccer program to boot up, 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. We have been placing wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn to get the golden wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany all the squares laying the heavy lumber onto a road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days ahead of the Monday night affair, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered at a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever of the best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but youre leaning onto the Cardinals. Other than the venue do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, and a win IMO, said a lot about the direction of both the Steelers and Titans. Let us move ahead to real soccer, will our records with this one and in which the matches rely.
Remember all those Thursday night matches Louisville used to play against competitions that are big-name? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games to see and also the Cardinals were an golf club.
But just for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles at Appalachian State and will be out to change the civilization and win matches. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. However , this is a big time for Louisville, a team that has the chance to start taking steps.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the protection that makes me more nervous. You have up your Irish please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest, flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and hes got a team coming off of a dismal album last year in which they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to taking a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it to the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per game over.
My question is, how is a quarterback like Pass whos slow to discharge, designed to gain any traction against a swarming defense? Especially when hes working with an offensive strategy and a coach?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep up with the Golden Domers and I am desperate to prodigious handicapping expertise and your ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence youre coming around to the glowing side of sports betting, or youre simply being the exact wise a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last season.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons, but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new mindset is brought by A new trainer and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement this being a national game. Louisville does have to trust never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with the blue and gold is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS, when dishing out 20 or more specimens. That defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, if you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville could be greater compared to last year but Id submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document left by an trainer like Petrino.
I know that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the road is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the public is right, and in this case they certainly 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 squint at Louisville.
