Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our college football selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then that I will detract to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this season we do this, as the previous week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the best clubs in the nation, and a legendary football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I endorsed the Titans. We have been placing wins on and back so it appears like its my turn to get the gold wreath, as I will accompany all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a public road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days before this Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered at a solid -20 round the board whatsoever of the best internet sportsbooks.
I like the Irish but you are currently leaning onto the Cardinals. Besides the venue do you think Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup at least and a win IMO, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move to football, where the matches rely and so will our recordings on this one.
Recall Louisville used to perform against big-name competitions? They held their engineered and own several upsets. These were fun games and the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But just for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win matches and to alter the civilization and worked wonders in Appalachian State. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a huge time for Louisville, a group which has the chance to start taking actions in the ideal direction.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense that makes me more nervous. 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 comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a group coming off of a dismal album last year in which they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group that 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 regular season and going a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
My query is, how will be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to discharge, supposed to get any traction against a swarming shield that is Irish? Particularly when hes working with a coach and an entirely new offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up and Im desperate to your sage wisdom and prodigious handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the sunny side of sport gambling, or youre simply being the exact identical wise a** you are. I will let the SBR readers that are making this is decided on by school football picks. I am the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and sucked final year.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A fresh mindset is brought by A new coach and his team will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement, this being a game. Louisville does have to trust never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with all the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS, when dishing out more or 20 specimens. This defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, when you dont/can not amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it will take some time.
I was being a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping that was impressive restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be better but I would submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record rendered by an coach such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that putting nearly 3 touchdowns on the highway would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but at times the public is correct, and also in this instance they surely are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
