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 from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our feet and then 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 display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the top clubs in the country, and a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while I endorsed the Titans. We have been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn to get the gold wreath, as I will accompany the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days ahead of the Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point about the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered in a solid -20 across the board whatsoever of the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but you are currently leaning onto the Cardinals in this season-opening clash. Other than the venue, why do you think Louisville can hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes IMO and at least a convincing triumph, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets proceed to real football, in which the matches rely and so will our records with this one.
Remember those Thursday night matches Louisville used to play against competitions? They more than held their own and engineered many upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and also the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
However, just like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out win games and to alter the civilization and worked miracles. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a huge time for Louisville, a team that has the chance to begin taking steps in the ideal direction.
I have read where the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 the protection which makes me more nervous. Please do tell why you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team coming from a dismal album last year, where they went winless in ACC activity. This rebuild is akin to attempting to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team that made it to the CFP this past year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
My query is, how will be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, supposed to get some traction against a swarming defense that is Irish? Especially when hes working with a coach and an offensive strategy that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace and I am desperate for handicapping experience that is prodigious and the sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to read in your last sentence you are coming over to the glowing side of sports gambling, or you are just being the exact shrewd a** you usually are. I will allow the SBR readers that are currently making college football selections decide on this. Im the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and completely sucked last year.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A trainer brings a fresh attitude and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement, this being a national game. Louisville does have to trust they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and never have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS if dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you said might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, when you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping that was impressive resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville could be greater but I would submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record rendered by an equally awkward coach such as Petrino.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the people is right, and also in this instance they definitely are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
