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 also I shall deviate to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the very best clubs in the country, and a mythical soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while I backed the Titans. Weve been placing wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn to get the wreath, as I will follow each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a public road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to the Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered at a solid -20 throughout the board at all the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but youre currently leaning within this battle on the Cardinals. Apart from the venue, why is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes, Swinger, a convincing triumph and at least IMO, it said a lot about both the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets move ahead to real football, where the matches rely and will our records on this one.
Recall Louisville utilized to play against big-name opponents? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were fun games to watch and also the Cardinals were an club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles at Appalachian State and are out win matches and to alter the culture. This will not happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. However this is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the chance to begin taking steps.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall because the direct running back. The defense, well, which makes me more nervous than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. Please do tell you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and hes got a group last year, where they went winless in ACC activity coming off of a dismal record. This rebuild is comparable to attempting to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group which made it into the CFP this past year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging over 33 points per game.
My query is, just how can be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, designed to obtain any traction against a swarming defense? Particularly when hes working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a coach?
Please, Doug, save 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 for handicapping experience that is prodigious and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to read in your last sentence you are coming on to the sunny side of sport betting, or youre just being the identical wise a** you usually are. Ill let the SBR readers that are making college football picks decide on that. Im the first to understand Louisville was, however, 1-11 ATS and completely sucked final season.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A coach brings a new attitude on making a statement and with this being a federal game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to hope never 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 ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS, if dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you said may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, whenever you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville could be better but Id submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an inept coach such as Petrino.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but at times the general public is correct, and in this case they are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
