Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our college football picks on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and I shall deviate from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the top clubs in the nation, and a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets 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 on so it looks like its my turn for the gold wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a public road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of the Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered in a solid -20 across the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
I like the Irish but youre currently leaning onto the Cardinals. Besides the place, why is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, a win and IMO, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us move ahead to football, so will our recordings with this one and in which the games rely.
Remember Louisville utilized to perform against big-name opponents? They held their own and engineered many upsets. These were fun games to watch and the Cardinals were an golf club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out win matches and to change the culture and worked wonders at Appalachian State. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a major time for Louisville, a group that has the chance.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense that makes me more worried. Please do tell you have your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest, flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and he has a group coming off of a dismal 2-10 record last year where they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group which made it into the CFP last year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
My question is, how will be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, designed to gain any traction against a swarming defense that is Irish? Particularly when hes working with a trainer and a completely new offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to be able to keep pace and I am desperate for your sage wisdom and handicapping expertise that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence youre coming on to the sunny side of sports gambling, or you are just being the identical shrewd a** you are. I will let the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by college soccer picks. Im the first to realize Louisville fully pumped and was, but 1-11 ATS final season.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A new mindset is brought by A trainer and his team will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement with this being a match. Louisville does have to trust not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out 20 or more specimens. This defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even whenever you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping that was impressive restart that you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, because Louisville might be better than last year but I would submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record rendered by an trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the general public is right, and in this instance they definitely are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
