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 also I shall detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the very best clubs in the nation, plus a legendary soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a wager about the Steelers while I supported the Titans. We have been swapping wins on and back so it looks like it is my turn to the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany the squares putting the thick lumber onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered at a solid -20 round the board at all the best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I enjoy the Irish but you are currently leaning to the Cardinals. Apart from the place, why is it that you think Louisville could hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes IMO and at least a convincing triumph, said a lot about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to real soccer, will our recordings with this one and in which the games rely.
Recall Louisville used to play against competitions? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were fun games and the Cardinals were an exciting club.
But just like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles in Appalachian State and are out win games and to change the civilization. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. Yet , this is a significant moment for Louisville, a team that has the chance.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall because the lead running back. The shield which makes me more nervous than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Please do tell you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a group this past year, where they went winless coming off of a dismal 2-10 record. This rebuild is comparable to trying to turn it and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it into the CFP this past 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 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per game over.
My question is, just how can be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, supposed to get any traction against a defense that is Irish? Especially when hes working with an offensive strategy and a new coach?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace and I am desperate to handicapping expertise that is prodigious and your sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the bright side of sports betting, or youre just being the exact shrewd a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by college football selections. I am the first to realize Louisville wasnt just 2-10, but 1-11 ATS and completely sucked final season.
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 new coach and his team will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement, this being a match. Louisville does need to hope not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using all the gold and blue is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out more or 20 specimens. This defense you said may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, when you dont/can not amuse like Bama or Clemson, it will take some time.
I was being a bit facetious because although youve got an impressive handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville could be greater than last year but Id submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document left by an coach such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the general public is correct, and in this case they certainly are. Until next week when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday when the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
