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 that I will deviate to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this year we do this, as the previous week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA soccer featuring one of the top clubs in the nation, and a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were endorsed by me. Weve been placing wins on and back so it looks like it is my turn to get the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow all the squares laying the heavy lumber onto a public road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days before the Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever of the very best internet sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning onto the Cardinals although I like the Irish. Apart from the venue is it that you believe Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup a successful triumph and IMO, it said a lot about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us proceed to real football, in which the matches rely and will our recordings on this one.
Recall Louisville utilized to play against opponents? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were fun games to watch and the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
However, just like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out to alter the culture and win matches and worked wonders. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team that has the chance to start taking actions in the ideal direction.
I have read where the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense , that makes me more nervous. Please do tell youve got up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest, flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group last year, where they went winless in ACC action coming off of a dismal record. This rebuild is comparable to taking a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group 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 normal 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 game.
My query is, how will be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, designed to get some traction against a swarming Irish defense? Especially when he is working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form from which Louisville is going to be able to keep up and Im desperate for handicapping experience and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am happy to see in your last sentence youre coming over to the sunny side of sports gambling, or you are just being the identical shrewd a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers that are making school football picks decide on this. I am the first to understand Louisville fully pumped and was, however, 1-11 ATS final season.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A trainer brings a fresh attitude and this being a match, Satterfield will market his staff. Louisville does have to trust they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out 20 or more specimens. That defense you said might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even if you dont/can not recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
I used to be somewhat facetious because although youve got an impressive handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, because Louisville might be greater compared to last year but Id submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document left by an awkward trainer like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the general public is right, and also in this instance they are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
