Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our college football picks on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and that I shall detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the top teams in the nation, plus a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while the Titans were endorsed by me. Weve been placing wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn to get the golden wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will accompany all the squares laying the heavy lumber onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of the Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 round the board at all the very best online sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre leaning on the Cardinals. Aside from the place, why do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, IMO and a convincing triumph, it said a great deal about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Let us proceed to football, will our recordings on this one and in which the games count.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville used to perform against opponents that are big-name? They more than held their own and engineered many upsets. These were fun games to watch and the Cardinals were an exciting club.
However, just like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders at Appalachian State and are out win matches and to alter the culture. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. Yet this is a time for Louisville, a group which has the opportunity.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. The defense, well, that makes me more nervous than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. You have up your Irish, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest, flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and hes got a group this past year, where they went winless coming off of a dismal 2-10 album. This rebuild is comparable to taking a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it into the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
My question is, how is a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, supposed to gain some traction against a swarming Irish shield? Particularly when he is working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a trainer?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up with this Golden Domers and Im desperate for handicapping experience that is prodigious and your brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to read in your last sentence youre coming on to the sunny side of sport betting, or youre simply being the identical shrewd a** you are. I will let the SBR readers who are making this is decided on by school football picks. 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 on the Atlanta Falcons but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new attitude is brought by A new trainer on creating a statement and this being a federal match, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to trust never and the Irish will take them for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using the blue and gold is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS if dishing out more or 20 digits. That defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it will take time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping that was impressive resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be greater but Id submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document left by an inept trainer like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing 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 at times the general public is right, and also in this instance they surely are. Until when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
