Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our college football picks on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and that I shall deviate to dip our toes.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the best clubs in the country, and a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while I backed the Titans. Weve been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn to get the wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will accompany each of the squares putting the thick lumber onto a public road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days before the Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point about the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered in a solid -20 round the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but youre currently leaning within this season-opening battle to the Cardinals. Apart from the venue, why is it that you believe Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, IMO and a successful win, it said a lot about both the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us proceed to real football, in which the games rely and will our records with this one.
Remember those Thursday night games Louisville used to play against big-name opponents? They more than held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders at Appalachian State and are out win matches and to change the culture. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a group that has the chance to begin taking steps in the perfect direction.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the shield, well, that makes me more worried. Please do tell why youve got up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying in this match as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and he has a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 album this past year in which they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to taking a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a group that made it into the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per match.
My query is, just how is a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, supposed to obtain any traction against a defense? Particularly when he is working with a new trainer and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace and Im desperate for prodigious handicapping experience and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence youre coming on to the sunny side of sport gambling, or youre just being the identical wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by college football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville was, however 1-11 ATS and fully pumped final year.
But that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons. A trainer brings a new mindset on creating a statement and with this being a national match, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and never have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS when dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you mentioned 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 though youve got an impressive handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be better but I would submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but at times the public is correct, and in this instance they certainly are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
