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 selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then that I will deviate to dip our feet.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the greatest teams in the nation, plus a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I backed the Titans. We have been placing wins on and back so it appears like it is my turn to get the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany the squares laying the heavy lumber on a public street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days prior to the Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered in a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning on the Cardinals within this battle although doug, I like the Irish. Apart from the place, why do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup IMO and at least a successful triumph, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move ahead to football, in which the games rely and so will our records on this one.
Recall those Thursday night matches Louisville used to perform against big-name opponents? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an club.
However, such as the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win games and to change the culture and worked miracles. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. Nonetheless, this is a major moment for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity to start taking steps.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall since the direct running back. The shield, well, which makes me more worried than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Why you have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and he has a group coming off of a dismal album where they went winless this past year. This rebuild is like getting a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group that made it to the CFP this past year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the regular year 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 match over.
So, my issue is, how will be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, supposed to obtain any traction against a shield that is Irish? Especially when hes working with an offensive scheme and a new coach?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep pace and I am desperate for prodigious handicapping expertise and your brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to see in your last sentence youre coming on to the glowing side of sport gambling, or you are simply being the exact identical shrewd a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers that are making this is decided on by college football picks. Im the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was, however, 1-11 ATS final year.
Just like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons, However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A trainer brings a new attitude and with this being a match, Satterfield will market his staff on building a statement. Louisville does have to hope never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly using all the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS when dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you said may improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, when you dont/cant recruit like Bama or Clemson, it will take some time.
I was a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville could be better compared to last year but Id submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record rendered by an equally awkward coach like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road is square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the general public is correct, and in this instance they surely are. Until next week when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
