Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then I shall detract to dip our feet.
It will probably be the first and only time this season we do so, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the best clubs in the nation, and a mythical soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it appears like its my turn to the golden wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow the squares laying the heavy lumber on a public road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days prior to the 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 throughout the board at all of the best online sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning on the Cardinals although doug, I like the Irish. Other than the venue is it that you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup and a successful triumph IMO, said a great deal about both the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets move to soccer, in which the games count and so will our recordings with this one.
Remember those Thursday night games Louisville used to perform against big-name competitions? They held their engineered and own several upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an golf club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out win matches and to change the culture and worked miracles in Appalachian State. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a team that has the chance to begin taking steps.
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 because the direct running back. The shield that makes me more worried than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. Please do tell you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying into this game since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and hes got a team coming from a dismal 2-10 record last year, in which they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team which made it to the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per match.
My query is, how will be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to discharge, supposed to get some traction against a swarming Irish defense? Especially when hes working with an offensive strategy and a trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville will be able to keep up and I am desperate for the brand new wisdom and handicapping expertise that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am happy to read in your last sentence you are coming over to the glowing side of sport gambling, or youre simply being the exact same wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers who are currently making this is decided on by college football picks. I am the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and sucked final season.
Like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons, However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A fresh attitude is brought by A coach and this being a game, Satterfield will sell his staff. Louisville does need to hope they will not be taken by the Irish and not have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly using all the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS when dishing out more or 20 specimens. This defense you said may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, if you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take some time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping that was impressive resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be greater than last year but I would submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record rendered by an equally inept trainer like Petrino.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but at times the public is correct, and in this instance they surely 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 rumble in Louisville.
