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 selections and then also I shall deviate to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA football comprising one of the top teams in the country, and a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. We have been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn to get the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days before the Monday night affair, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 across the board whatsoever of the best internet sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning to the Cardinals although doug, I like the Irish. Besides the venue do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, IMO and a successful win, it said a lot about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Lets proceed to soccer, where the matches count and so will our recordings with this one.
Recall Louisville utilized to perform against opponents? They more than held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders at Appalachian State and are out win matches and to change the culture. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. Yet this is a huge time for Louisville, a team that has the chance.
I have read where the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 the shield which makes me more worried. You have up your Irish please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing flying in this match since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy inside their nest. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and hes got a group this past year, where they went winless in ACC action coming off of a dismal record. This rebuild is like carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it.
While this may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it to the CFP this past year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per game.
So, my query is, just how can be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, designed to obtain some traction against a swarming defense? Especially when he is working with a new trainer and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep up and Im desperate for your ancestral wisdom and handicapping expertise that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to read in your last sentence you are coming on to the sunny side of sports betting, or youre just being the exact same shrewd a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are making college football picks decide on that. Im the first to realize Louisville sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 final season.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A new mindset is brought by A trainer and this being a federal match, Satterfield will sell his staff. Louisville does have to trust they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and not have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS if dishing out 20 or more specimens. This defense you said may improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even when you dont/can not recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it will take some time.
I was a bit facetious because although you have an impressive handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, because Louisville might be better but Id submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an awkward coach such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the road is square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the public is right, and also in this instance they are. Until next week when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
