Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will detract to dip our toes and also render our school football selections.
It will most likely be the first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of exhibit NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the top teams in the nation, and a legendary soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while I supported the Titans. We have been swapping wins forth and back so it appears like it is my turn for the gold wreath, as I will accompany the squares putting the thick lumber on a public road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 throughout the board at all of the best online sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning onto the Cardinals although doug, I enjoy the Irish. Besides the venue do you think Louisville will hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes IMO and at least a successful triumph, it said a lot about the direction of both the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to football, so will our records with this one and where the games count.
Recall Louisville utilized to perform against big-name competitions? They held their engineered and own several upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But like 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 win games and to alter the culture and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team that has the chance.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 the protection that makes me more worried. You have up your Irish, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a group coming off of a dismal 2-10 record where they went winless in ACC activity this past year. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it to the CFP last year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
My question is, just how is a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, supposed to gain some traction against a swarming shield that is Irish? Especially when he is working with a coach and an offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to be able to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate for prodigious handicapping expertise and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to read in your last sentence youre coming around to the glowing side of sports gambling, or youre simply being the exact wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers who are making that is decided on by college football selections. I am the first to understand Louisville was not just 2-10, however 1-11 ATS and fully pumped final season.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons, However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A fresh mindset is brought by A coach and with this being a national match, Satterfield will sell his staff. Louisville does need to hope the Irish will take them and not have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly using all the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS when dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even if you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, because Louisville could be greater but I would submit that they are trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document rendered by an equally inept trainer like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the general public is correct, and also in this case they surely are. Until next week once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
