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 selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then I shall deviate to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the best teams in the country, and a legendary soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a wager about the Steelers while the Titans were supported by me. We have been placing wins on and back so it looks like its my turn to the wreath, as I will accompany the squares putting the thick lumber onto a public street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days ahead of this Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered at a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever the best internet sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning to the Cardinals in this clash although doug, I love the Irish. Besides the place do you think Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes IMO and at least a successful triumph, it said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move ahead to real soccer, will our records with this one and in which the games rely.
Remember Louisville used to play against big-name competitions? They more than held their engineered and own upsets. These were fun games and also the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out to change the civilization and win games and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. Nevertheless this is a big moment for Louisville, a group that has the chance to start taking actions in the perfect direction.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the protection, well, that makes me more worried. Please do tell youve got your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug inside their nest flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and hes got a group this past year, in which they went winless coming off of a dismal 2-10 record. This rebuild is akin to taking a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it into the CFP this past year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per game.
So, my issue is, just how will be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, supposed to gain some traction against a defense that is Irish? Particularly when hes working with a completely new offensive scheme and a trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep up and Im desperate to handicapping experience that is prodigious and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the bright side of sports betting, or you are just being the exact identical wise a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are currently making that is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and completely sucked final year.
However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, just like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons. A fresh attitude is brought by A new coach on building a statement and with this being a game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to trust not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS, when dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you mentioned may improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even if you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take some time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because although you have an impressive handicapping restart, then 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 year but I would submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record left by an equally inept coach such as Petrino.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the road is square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the people is correct, and in this case they certainly are. Until next week when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
