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 picks on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and I shall deviate from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this season we do this, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the best clubs in the nation, plus a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I endorsed the Titans. We have been placing wins back and on so it appears like its my turn to get the golden wreath, as I will follow each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days prior to the Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered at a solid -20 across the board at all of the best online sportsbooks.
I like the Irish but youre leaning within this battle onto the Cardinals. Aside from the venue, why is it that you think Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, a convincing triumph and at least IMO, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us move to real soccer, in which the matches rely and will our records with this one.
Remember Louisville used to play against competitions? They held their engineered and own several upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win games and to alter the civilization and worked miracles. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. Nonethelessthis is a big time for Louisville, a group that has the chance to begin taking steps.
I have read where the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the shield, well, that makes me more worried. You have your Irish up, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug 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 in which they went winless this past year. This rebuild is comparable to taking a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While that may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group that made it to the CFP last year and possessed only 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 from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
So, my issue is, just how will be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, designed to obtain some traction against a shield? Particularly when he is working with an offensive strategy and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will be able to keep up and Im desperate for handicapping experience and your ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to read in your last sentence youre coming over to the bright side of sports gambling, or you are just being the same wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by school football selections. Im the first to understand Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last year.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A fresh mindset is brought by A trainer on building a statement, and this being a game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust the Irish will take them and never have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly using the gold and blue is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS if dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because though you have an impressive handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville might be better compared to last year but I would submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document left by an equally inept coach like Petrino.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but at times the public is right, and in this case they certainly are. Until next week when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
