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 picks on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then that I shall deviate to dip our feet.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this year we do this, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the best teams in the country, and a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I supported the Titans. Weve been placing wins forth and back so it appears like it is my turn for the golden wreath, as I will follow each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to the Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 round the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but youre currently leaning in this season-opening battle to the Cardinals. Other than the place do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup a triumph and IMO, it said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Lets proceed to soccer, so will our recordings with this one and where the games rely.
Recall Louisville used to play against opponents that are big-name? They held their engineered and own several upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an exciting club.
However, just like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out to change the civilization and win matches and worked miracles. This will not happen right away as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the chance.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall since the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the shield which makes me more nervous. Why you have up your Irish please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and he has a group coming from a dismal record where they went winless in ACC activity this past year. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it into the CFP this past year and possessed only 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 till they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per game over.
My query is, just how is a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, designed to get some traction against a swarming defense that is Irish? Especially when he is working with a new coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will be able to keep up with this Golden Domers and Im desperate to your brand new wisdom and handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to read in your last sentence you are coming over to the glowing side of sport betting, or you are just being the identical shrewd a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by college football selections. I am the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and fully pumped last season.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A fresh mindset is brought by A trainer and his team will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement this being a national game. Louisville does have to trust not and the Irish will take them have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out 20 or more specimens. This defense you said might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/can not recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although you have an impressive handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, because Louisville could be better than last year but Id submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record left by an trainer such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly three 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 people is right, and also in this situation they surely are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
