Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I will detract to dip our feet and leave our school football selections on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the greatest clubs in the nation, plus a mythical football 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 with a bet on the Steelers while I supported the Titans. We have been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like its my turn to get the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days before this Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered in a solid -20 throughout the board at all the very best internet sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre currently leaning on the Cardinals within this clash. Aside from the venue do you think Louisville will hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, a convincing win and IMO, said a great deal about the direction of both the Steelers and Titans. Let us move to soccer, will our records with this one and in which the matches rely.
Remember Louisville utilized to play against big-name competitions? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were fun games and the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles in Appalachian State and are out to change the civilization and win games. This will not happen immediately as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a huge time for Louisville, a group which has the chance to begin taking steps.
I have read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good 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 the protection, well, that makes me more nervous. You have your Irish up, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing flying in this match as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and hes got a group this past year, in which they went winless in ACC activity coming from a dismal record. This rebuild is akin to trying to turn it and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team 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 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per game.
So, my issue is, just how is a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, designed to obtain some traction against a Irish defense? Especially when hes working with a coach and an offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep up with this Golden Domers and I am desperate to the sage wisdom and handicapping experience!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to read in your last sentence youre coming over to the bright side of sport betting, or you are simply being the identical wise a** you are. I will allow the SBR readers who are currently making college football picks decide on that. I am the first to understand Louisville fully pumped and was, but 1-11 ATS last year.
Just like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A coach brings a fresh mindset and with this being a national match, Satterfield will market his staff. Louisville does need to hope the Irish will take them and not have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, when you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it will take some time.
I was being a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville could be greater but I would submit that they are trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their own album rendered by an equally awkward trainer like Petrino.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the general public is right, and in this situation they surely are. Until next week once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
