Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I shall deviate from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our feet and then render our school football picks.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this season we do this, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the greatest clubs in the nation, and a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a wager on the Steelers while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been swapping wins back and on so it appears like its my turn to the wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a public road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days before this 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 throughout the board whatsoever of the best internet sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but you are currently leaning within this clash to the Cardinals. Apart from the place, why do you think Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, at least and a win IMO, it said a lot about the direction of both the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to soccer, so will our records with this one and in which the games rely.
Recall Louisville used to perform against competitions that are big-name? They held their engineered and own several upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an club.
However, just for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and are out to change the civilization and win matches. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team that has the opportunity.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall because the direct running back. The shield which makes me more nervous than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. You have up your Irish, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much flying in this game as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and hes got a team coming from a dismal 2-10 album in which they went winless in ACC activity this past year. This rebuild is akin to trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group that made it to the CFP this past year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
So, my issue is, how is a quarterback like Pass whos slow to discharge, designed to gain some traction against a defense? Particularly when he is working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep up with this Golden Domers and Im desperate for the sage wisdom and prodigious handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to read in your last sentence youre coming over to the sunny side of sport gambling, or you are just being the exact shrewd a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are currently making college football selections decide on that. I am the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and completely sucked last season.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new mindset is brought by A coach and this being a match, Satterfield will market his team on making a statement. Louisville does need to hope the Irish will take them and not have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS, when dishing out more or 20 specimens. This defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even whenever you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it is going to take some time.
I was a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping that was impressive resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be better but Id submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document rendered by an awkward trainer like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying 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 on occasion the people is correct, and in this instance they definitely are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
