Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I shall deviate from our regularly scheduled program of NFL discussion to dip our feet into uncharted waters and leave our college football picks on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will probably be the first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the best teams in the country, and a legendary soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while I supported the Titans. We have been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn for the gold wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days before the Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever of the best internet sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but you are currently leaning within this season-opening battle to the Cardinals. Apart from the place, why is it that you believe Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, a triumph and IMO, said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move ahead to real soccer, where the games rely and so will our records on this one.
Remember all those Thursday night matches Louisville used to perform against big-name competitions? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out to alter the civilization and win matches and worked miracles. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity to start taking steps.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense, well, that makes me more worried. 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 cozy in their nest flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and hes got a group coming off of a dismal 2-10 album last year, in which they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group which made it to the CFP last year and possessed 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 fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging over 33 points per match.
My query is, just how is a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, supposed to obtain any traction against a shield that is Irish? Especially when hes working with a new coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will be able to keep up with the Golden Domers and I am desperate for handicapping expertise that is prodigious and your ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to read in your last sentence you are coming on to the bright side of sport betting, or youre simply being the identical shrewd a** you are. I will let the SBR readers that are making this is decided on by college football selections. Im the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last year.
However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons. A fresh mindset is brought by A new coach and his team will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement, this being a match. Louisville does need to trust not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS when dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you said might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even when you dont/can not amuse like Bama or Clemson, it is going to take some time.
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 situation, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville could be better compared to last year but I would submit that they are trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document left by an equally awkward coach like Petrino.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but at times the public is correct, and in this case they definitely are. Until next week once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
