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 then render our school football selections on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will probably be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the top clubs in the country, plus a legendary soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a wager on the Steelers while I backed the Titans. Weve been swapping wins on and back so it appears like it is my turn to get the wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will accompany all the squares laying the heavy lumber onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of the Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 round the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning to the Cardinals although I like the Irish. Besides the venue do you think Louisville could hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, a convincing win and at least IMO, it said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us proceed to football, where the games rely and will our records with this one.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville used to perform against big-name competitions? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were fun games to watch and also the Cardinals were an exciting club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders in Appalachian State and are out to alter the civilization and win matches. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a group which has the chance.
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 enjoy Hassan Hall as the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense which makes me more worried. Please do tell why you have your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and he has a group coming from a dismal album in which they went winless this past year. This rebuild is akin to seeking to turn it and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a group which made it into the CFP last year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per game over.
So, my question is, just how can be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, designed to obtain any traction against a shield? Especially when he is working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep up and I am desperate for handicapping experience and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence youre coming on to the glowing side of sport betting, or you are simply being the exact same shrewd a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers who are currently making college football picks decide on that. I am the first to understand Louisville sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last season.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A coach brings a fresh attitude on building a statement and this being a national game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to trust not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly using all the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, also if dishing out 20 or more specimens, a ATS. That defense you said may improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, when you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because although youve got an impressive handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville could be better but I would submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document rendered by an awkward coach like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the people is right, and also in this situation they are. Until next week when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
