Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our college football picks and then that I shall detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will probably be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the top teams in the nation, and a legendary football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while I backed the Titans. We have been swapping wins forth and back so it appears like it is my turn to get the wreath, as I will follow all the squares laying the heavy lumber on a public road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to this Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered in a solid -20 round the board at all the very best online sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning on the Cardinals in this battle although doug, I enjoy the Irish. Other than the place is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, IMO and at least a convincing win, said a lot about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Let us proceed to soccer, where the games count and will our records on this one.
Recall all those Thursday night matches Louisville utilized to perform against opponents that are big-name? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win games and to alter the civilization and worked miracles in Appalachian State. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. However this is a time for Louisville, a group which has the chance.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense , well, that makes me more worried. Please do tell you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing flying in this game as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and he has a group last year, in which they went winless coming from a dismal record. This rebuild is comparable to attempting to turn it and carrying a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group which made it to the CFP last year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
My issue is, how can be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to discharge, supposed to gain some traction against a Irish shield? Particularly when he is working with a coach and a completely new offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will be able to keep up and I am desperate for prodigious handicapping expertise and your brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to read in your last sentence you are coming around to the sunny side of sports betting, or you are just being the same wise a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are currently making that is decided on by college football selections. Im the first to understand Louisville fully pumped and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last season.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons, However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A fresh attitude is brought by A trainer and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement this being a match. Louisville does have to hope the Irish will take them for granted and not have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and if dishing out 20 or more specimens, a mere 7-9-1 ATS. That defense you mentioned may increase as the season advances but replacing five starters, even when you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville could be greater than last year but I would submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record left by an coach like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the public is right, and also in this situation they 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 rumble in Louisville.
