Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I will deviate from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL debate to dip our toes and then render our school football selections.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer featuring one of the best teams in the country, and a mythical soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while the Titans were backed by me. We have been placing wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn to get the wreath, as I will follow the squares putting the thick lumber on a public road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but you are leaning within this clash onto the Cardinals. Other than the venue, why is it that you think Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup IMO and a successful win, said a lot about the direction of both the Steelers and Titans. Let us move ahead to football, so will our recordings on this one and in which the matches count.
Remember Louisville used to perform against competitions? They more than held their own and engineered several upsets. These were fun games to watch and also the Cardinals were an golf club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders at Appalachian State and will be out win matches and to alter the civilization. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. Yet , this is a time for Louisville, a team which has the chance.
I have read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall since the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the shield that makes me more nervous. You have your Irish up, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and hes got a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 record in which they went winless this past year. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group that made it to the CFP last year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per game over.
So, my issue is, how will be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, supposed to gain some traction against a swarming Irish shield? Particularly when hes working with a completely new offensive scheme and a new coach?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep up with the Golden Domers and Im desperate for the sage wisdom and handicapping expertise that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence youre coming around to the bright side of sport betting, or youre just being the exact identical wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers who are currently making this is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville was, however, 1-11 ATS and completely sucked final year.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new mindset is brought by A trainer and his team will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement, with this being a game. Louisville does need to trust not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you said may improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, whenever you dont/can not recruit like Bama or Clemson, it will take some time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because although you have an impressive handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville could be better compared to last year but I would submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record rendered by an coach like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the general public is correct, and also in this instance they are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
