Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our school football selections on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and then that I shall deviate to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this season we do so, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the very best clubs in the nation, and a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while I supported the Titans. We have been placing wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn for the golden wreath, as I will follow each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a public street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered in a solid -20 across the board at all of the very best online sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but you are currently leaning onto the Cardinals. Other than the venue, why do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup IMO and a successful win, it said a great deal about both the Steelers and Titans management. Let us move to soccer, will our recordings on this one and where the games rely.
Remember Louisville used to perform against big-name opponents? They held their engineered and own several upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an exciting club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out to alter the culture and win games and worked wonders at Appalachian State. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a team that has the opportunity to begin taking actions.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall as the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the shield, well, which makes me more worried. Why you have up your Irish please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying in this game since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and hes got a team coming from a dismal record this past year in which they went winless in ACC activity. This rebuild is akin to trying to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team which made it to the CFP this past year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
My question is, just how can be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to discharge, supposed to gain any traction against a swarming defense that is Irish? Especially when he is working with a new coach and an offensive scheme?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up with the Golden Domers and Im desperate for handicapping expertise that is prodigious and your ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the glowing side of sports gambling, or youre simply being the identical shrewd a** you are. I will let the SBR readers that are currently making that is decided on by college football selections. I am the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and fully pumped last season.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A new mindset is brought by A new coach and his team will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement with this being a federal match. Louisville does have to hope not and the Irish will take them for granted have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS if dishing out more or 20 digits. That defense you said may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, whenever you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping that was impressive restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville might be better than last year but Id submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record left by an coach like Petrino.
I understand that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the public is right, and also in this case they surely are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
