Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football picks on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and that I will detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will probably be the first and only time this season we do so, as the previous week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the top teams in the country, plus a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a wager on the Steelers while the Titans were endorsed by me. We have been swapping wins back and on so it appears like it is my turn to get the wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days ahead of the Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 round the board at all of the very best online sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre leaning on the Cardinals in this season-opening battle. Other than the venue, why is it that you believe Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes at least and a successful win IMO, it said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Lets move ahead to real football, so will our recordings with this one and in which the matches rely.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville used to play against opponents? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and the Cardinals were an club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and will be out win games and to change the civilization. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity.
I have read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the shield which makes me more worried. Why you have up your Irish please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and hes got a team this past year, where they went winless in ACC activity coming off of a dismal album. This rebuild is comparable to taking a hot air balloon and trying to turn it.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team which made it into the CFP this past year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per match.
My issue is, just how is a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, supposed to gain any traction against a defense? Especially when he is working with a coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep pace and I am desperate for handicapping expertise that is prodigious and your brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to read in your last sentence you are coming around to the glowing side of sports gambling, or youre simply being the same shrewd a** you usually are. Ill let the SBR readers who are making this is decided on by college football picks. I am the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and sucked final year.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons, However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A trainer brings a new mindset and his team will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement, with this being a national game. Louisville does have to trust the Irish will take them for granted and never have much fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly with all the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, and when dishing out 20 or more digits, a mere 7-9-1 ATS. This defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, whenever you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though you have an impressive handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, because Louisville could be better than last year but Id submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record rendered by an 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 along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the public is correct, and in this situation they definitely are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
