Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will deviate to dip our feet into uncharted waters and also leave our school football picks.
It will probably be the very first and only time this season we do so, as the last week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the very best teams in the country, plus a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a wager on the Steelers while I backed the Titans. Weve been placing wins on and back so it looks like its my turn to the golden wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow the squares putting the thick lumber onto a public road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days before this Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I enjoy the Irish but you are currently leaning on the Cardinals in this battle. Other than the venue, why do you think Louisville can hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup IMO and a successful win, it said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us proceed to real soccer, will our records with this one and where the games count.
Remember those Thursday night matches Louisville used to perform against competitions? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were fun games to watch and the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders at Appalachian State and will be out win matches and to change the civilization. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the chance to begin taking steps.
I have read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the shield that makes me more worried. Why you have your Irish up please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest, flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and hes got a group coming off of a dismal record this past year where they went winless in ACC activity. This rebuild is comparable to taking a hot air balloon and trying to turn it.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a team which made it into the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per game over.
My question is, just how is a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, designed to gain any traction against a Irish shield? Particularly when hes working with a completely new offensive strategy and a coach?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up and I am desperate to the brand new wisdom and prodigious handicapping experience!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence you are coming on to the glowing side of sport betting, or youre simply being the identical shrewd a** you usually are. I will allow the SBR readers that are making this is decided on by college football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and fully pumped last year.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new coach brings a fresh attitude and with this being a federal game, Satterfield will market his team. Louisville does have to trust they will not be taken by the Irish and not have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly using the gold and blue is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS if dishing out more or 20 digits. That defense you said might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, if you dont/can not recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville could be better than last year but I would submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record left by an coach such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the general public is right, and also in this instance they definitely are. Until next week when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
