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 match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and I shall detract to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this season we do so, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the greatest clubs in the nation, and a mythical soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet about the Steelers while the Titans were supported by me. We have been placing wins back and forth so it appears like its my turn to the gold wreath, as I will accompany each of the squares laying the lumber on a street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days before this Monday night affair, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 across the board whatsoever of the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but youre currently leaning onto the Cardinals within this clash. Other than the place do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes IMO and at least a successful triumph, it said a lot about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us move ahead to football, so will our recordings with this one and where the games count.
Recall Louisville utilized to play against competitions that are big-name? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an exciting club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out to change the civilization and win games and worked wonders. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a team that has the chance to start taking actions.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. The protection, well, that makes me more worried than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. You have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest, flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and he has a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 album this past year in which they went winless. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group which 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 over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per match over.
So, my query is, just how will be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, supposed to gain some traction against a swarming Irish defense? Especially when hes working with a coach and an offensive strategy that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep up and Im desperate to the brand new wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the bright side of sport betting, or you are simply being the same wise a** you usually are. Ill let the SBR readers that are currently making college football picks decide on this. Im the first to understand Louisville fully pumped and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 last year.
But that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons. A new attitude is brought by A new trainer and his team will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement, this being a match. Louisville does need to trust that the Irish will take them and never have much fight.
Lets also think about, 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 when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even when you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it will take some time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping that was impressive restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, because Louisville could be better compared to last year but I would submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document left by an trainer like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but at times the public is right, and in this instance they are. Until when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
