Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I shall detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL debate to dip our toes into uncharted waters and render our school football selections on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will probably be the first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the best clubs in the country, and a legendary soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the debate 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 forth so it looks like it is my turn to the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish 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 affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 across the board at all of the very best online sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning on the Cardinals although I enjoy the Irish. Other than the venue, why do you think Louisville will hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup a win and IMO, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Lets move ahead to soccer, so will our records on this one and in which the matches rely.
Remember Louisville used to play against competitions that are big-name? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and the Cardinals were an exciting club.
However, just for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out to change the culture and win matches and worked wonders. This will not happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a major time for Louisville, a team which has the chance.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the defense which makes me more worried. Please do tell you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and hes got a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 album where they went winless in ACC activity this past year. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group which made it to the CFP this past year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging 33 points per game over.
So, my query is, how is a cop such as Pass whos slow to discharge, designed to get some traction from a swarming defense that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with a new trainer and a completely new offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will be able to keep up and I am desperate to handicapping experience that is prodigious and the sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the sunny side of sport betting, or you are just being the identical shrewd a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers that are making this is decided on by school football picks. I am the first to understand Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 final season.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new trainer brings a new attitude and his team will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement, with this being a match. Louisville does need to trust they will not be taken by the Irish and not have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it is going to take time.
I was a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville could be better compared to last year but I would submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document rendered by an equally inept trainer like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the people is correct, and also in this instance they surely are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
