Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football picks on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then I will deviate to dip our toes.
It will probably be the very first and only time this season we do so, as the previous week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the very best teams in the nation, plus a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. Weve been placing wins back and on so it appears like it is my turn to the gold wreath, as I will follow the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a public street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night affair, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever of the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but youre currently leaning in this season-opening battle to the Cardinals. Other than the place, why is it that you believe Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, IMO and at least a successful triumph, it said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move ahead to football, so will our recordings on this one and where the matches rely.
Recall Louisville used to perform against big-name competitions? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were fun games to see and also the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles and are out to change the culture and win games. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. Nonetheless, this is a huge time for Louisville, a group which has the chance to start taking steps.
I have read where the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall since the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the protection that makes me more nervous. Please do tell why you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and he has a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 album this past year, where they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to seeking to turn it and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a group which made it to the CFP last year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging 33 points per match over.
My question is, how is a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, supposed to gain any traction against a swarming defense? Particularly when he is working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a new coach?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up with the Golden Domers and I am desperate to the sage wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to read in your last sentence you are coming around to the bright side of sport gambling, or youre just being the identical wise a** you are. I will let the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by school football selections. I am the first to understand Louisville fully pumped and wasnt just 2-10, however 1-11 ATS final 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 coach and this being a match, Satterfield will market his team on making a statement. Louisville does need to hope never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS, when dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you mentioned may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping that was impressive restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville might be greater but I would submit that they are trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document left by an trainer like Petrino.
I understand that laying nearly three touchdowns on the road is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but at times the people is right, and also in this situation they certainly are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
