Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I shall detract to dip our feet into uncharted waters and leave our school football selections.
It will most likely be the first and only time this season we do this, as the previous week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA football comprising one of the greatest teams in the nation, and a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet about the Steelers while I backed the Titans. Weve been placing wins back and on so it appears like it is my turn to get the golden wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow each of the squares laying the heavy lumber on a street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days prior to the Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered at a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning on the Cardinals although doug, I enjoy the Irish. Apart from the place, why is it that you think Louisville will hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes at least and a successful triumph IMO, it said a great deal about both the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets proceed to soccer, in which the games rely and so will our recordings on this one.
Recall those Thursday night matches Louisville used to play against competitions? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an golf club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles and will be out to alter the culture and win games. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a group which has the chance.
I have read where the Cards coaches 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 shield, well, which makes me more worried. Please do tell you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest, flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team last year, where they went winless coming off of a dismal 2-10 record. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually happen, 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 within the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
My issue is, how is a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, designed to obtain any traction against a defense that is Irish? Particularly when hes working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a trainer?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will be able to keep pace and I am desperate to the ancestral wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence youre coming on to the bright side of sport betting, or you are just being the identical wise a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are currently making college football selections decide on this. Im the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and completely sucked last year.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new mindset is brought by A trainer and his team will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement, this being a federal game. Louisville does need to hope not and also they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS, when dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you mentioned may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/can not amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
I was being a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping that was impressive restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, because Louisville could be greater but Id submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable album rendered by an coach such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the road is square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the general public is correct, and also in this instance they surely are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
