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 selections on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then I shall deviate from our regularly scheduled program of NFL discussion to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the top clubs in the country, plus a legendary football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while I backed the Titans. We have been placing wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn to get the gold wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will accompany each of the squares putting the thick lumber on a public street favorite.
After reviewing the school soccer odds nearly six days prior to the Monday night occasion, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered in a solid -20 across the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I enjoy the Irish but you are leaning within this clash onto the Cardinals. Other than the place do you believe Louisville will hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, IMO and a successful triumph, said a lot about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move ahead to football, in which the games rely and will our recordings on this one.
Remember those Thursday night games Louisville used to play against competitions that are big-name? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were fun games to watch and the Cardinals were an club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles at Appalachian State and are out to change the culture and win games. This wont occur right away as the ability level is down in theVille. Nonethelessthis is a major moment for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity to begin taking steps.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the defense that makes me more nervous. Please do tell youve got your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest, flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and hes got a group coming from a dismal album where they went winless last year. This rebuild is comparable to seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group which made it to the CFP last 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 met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per game over.
My issue is, how is a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, designed to gain some traction against a defense that is Irish? Particularly when hes working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep up and Im desperate to your sage wisdom and prodigious handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to see in your last sentence you are coming on to the bright side of sport gambling, or youre simply being the same shrewd a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are currently making college football picks decide on this. Im the first to understand Louisville fully pumped and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 final season.
However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons. A new mindset is brought by A trainer and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement this being a national game. Louisville does have to hope never and also they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS if dishing out more or 20 specimens. This defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even whenever you dont/cant amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it will take some time.
I was being a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping that was impressive resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville might be greater but Id submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record left by an trainer like Petrino.
I know that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the people is correct, and also in this situation they certainly are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
