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 selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then also that I shall detract to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will probably be the first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the very best clubs in the nation, plus a legendary soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a wager on the Steelers while I supported the Titans. Weve been placing wins back and on so it appears like it is my turn for the gold wreath, as I will accompany all the squares laying the heavy lumber on a public street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days prior to the Monday night affair, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point on the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning onto the Cardinals in this battle although doug, I love the Irish. Aside from the place do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, a convincing win and at least IMO, it said a lot about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to real football, where the games count and so will our recordings on this one.
Recall Louisville used to play against opponents? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
However, such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders in Appalachian State and will be out win games and to change the civilization. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity to start taking actions in the ideal direction.
I have read where the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense, well, which makes me more nervous. Why you have your Irish up please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying in this game since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and hes got a team last year, at which they went winless coming off of a dismal document. This rebuild is akin to taking a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group that made it into the CFP last year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging over 33 points per game.
So, my issue is, how can be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, designed to get some traction against a swarming Irish defense? Particularly when he is working with an offensive strategy and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will be able to keep up with the Golden Domers and I am desperate to prodigious handicapping expertise and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the bright side of sports betting, or youre simply being the exact identical shrewd a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers who are currently making this is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to realize Louisville was, however, 1-11 ATS and sucked last year.
However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons. A fresh attitude is brought by A new coach making a statement and with this being a national game, his new staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you said may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, whenever you dont/cant recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville could be greater but I would submit that they are trained with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record rendered by an awkward trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the public is correct, and also in this case they certainly are. Until next week once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
