Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I shall deviate to dip our feet into uncharted waters and then also render our school football selections.
It will almost certainly 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 sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the greatest clubs in the country, plus a legendary soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I backed the Titans. Weve been placing wins forth and back so it appears like it is my turn to get the wreath, as I will follow each of the squares putting the thick lumber onto a public road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days before the Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered in a solid -20 throughout the board at all of the very best online sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre currently leaning onto the Cardinals. Apart from the venue, why do you believe Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup and a win IMO, said a lot about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Let us move ahead to real football, will our recordings with this one and in which the games count.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to play against big-name competitions? They more than held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
But just for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles at Appalachian State and will be out win games and to change the civilization. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down in theVille. Nonetheless, this is a time for Louisville, a team that has the opportunity.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the protection which makes me more worried. Please do tell youve got your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much flying in this game as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and he has a group last year, where they went winless coming off of a dismal record. This rebuild is comparable to taking a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group that made it to 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 moving a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
So, my issue is, just how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, supposed to obtain some traction against a swarming shield? Particularly when hes working with a coach and an offensive strategy that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep up and Im desperate to handicapping expertise that is prodigious and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the glowing side of sport gambling, or youre simply being the identical wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers that are making school football picks decide on that. I am the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 last year.
Just like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons, but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new mindset is brought by A new trainer on creating a statement, and with this being a match, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to hope not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/can not recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be greater but Id submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document left by an coach such as Petrino.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but at times the general public is right, and also in this case they definitely are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
