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 detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL debate to dip our toes and also leave our school football picks.
It will probably be the first and only time this year we do this, as the previous week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the top clubs in the country, plus a legendary football 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 bet about the Steelers while I backed the Titans. We have been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn to get the wreath, as I will follow the squares putting the thick lumber on a public street favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days before this Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered in a solid -20 round the board at all the very best internet sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but youre currently leaning in this clash onto the Cardinals. Besides the place, why do you think Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup a successful win and IMO, said a lot about the management of both the Steelers and Titans. Let us move to football, will our recordings on this one and where the matches rely.
Remember Louisville used to play against competitions? They more than held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders in Appalachian State and will be out win matches and to alter the civilization. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. However this is a huge time for Louisville, a team which has the chance to begin taking actions in the right direction.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall because the lead running back. The defense that makes me more nervous than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. Please do tell youve got up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and hes got a group coming off of a dismal record last year in which they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to taking a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group which 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 moving a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense has been clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per game over.
So, my question is, how is a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, supposed to gain any traction against a defense? Particularly when he is working with a coach and an offensive strategy that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace and Im desperate for handicapping experience and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence youre coming over to the glowing side of sports betting, or you are just being the identical shrewd a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by college football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and sucked final year.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A fresh mindset is brought by A trainer on building a statement, and this being a national game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope the Irish will take them for granted and not have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out 20 or more specimens. That defense you said might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping that was impressive restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville might be better compared to last season but I would submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document left by an equally inept coach like Petrino.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the people is correct, and in this case they definitely are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
