Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our feet and then also leave our school football selections.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the very best clubs in the nation, plus a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while I backed the Titans. We have been placing wins back and on so it appears like its my turn to get the wreath, as I will accompany all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a public road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days before this Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered at a solid -20 round the board at all of the best online sportsbooks.
I like the Irish but youre leaning in this clash onto the Cardinals. Aside from the venue, why do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup IMO and at least a convincing win, said a lot about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to football, will our records on this one and where the games count.
Remember all those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to play against competitions that are big-name? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were fun games to watch and the Cardinals were an club.
However, such as the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and will be out to change the civilization and win matches. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. Yet , this is a huge moment for Louisville, a group which has the chance.
I have read where the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall as the lead running back. The defense that makes me more worried than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. Please do tell why you have your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing flying into 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 2-10 record where they went winless last year. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and trying to turn it.
While this may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group that made it into the CFP this past year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met 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 will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, designed to obtain some traction against a defense? Especially when hes working with a new trainer and an offensive scheme?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep up and Im desperate for handicapping experience and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to read in your last sentence youre coming on to the sunny side of sports betting, or youre simply being the identical wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers who are making that is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to realize Louisville fully pumped and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last year.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A new attitude is brought by A coach on making a statement and with this being a federal match, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to hope never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS if dishing out more or 20 digits. That defense you said may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, when you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take some time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville could be greater than last year but I would submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document rendered by an trainer like Petrino.
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 betting the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the general public is correct, and also in this situation they certainly 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.
