Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our school football selections on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and I will detract 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 previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the top teams in the nation, plus a mythical soccer 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 backed by me. We have been swapping wins forth and back so it appears like its my turn to the gold wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow the squares putting the thick lumber onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered at a solid -20 round the board at all the best internet sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning to the Cardinals in this season-opening clash although doug, I like the Irish. Aside from the venue do you believe Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes at least and a successful triumph IMO, it said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets move ahead to real football, so will our records with this one and where the matches count.
Recall Louisville used to perform against opponents? They held their engineered and own several upsets. These were fun games to see and the Cardinals were an club.
But just for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a 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 major time for Louisville, a group which has the chance.
Ive read where the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall since the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 the defense , well, which makes me more nervous. Why you have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy inside their nest flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and hes got a team coming off of a dismal album where they went winless in ACC action this past year. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a group which made it into the CFP this past year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
My query is, just how can be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to discharge, designed to obtain any traction against a swarming defense? Particularly when he is working with a completely new offensive scheme and a coach?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to be able to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate for handicapping experience and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to read in your last sentence youre coming over to the bright side of sports betting, or youre just being the same wise a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are currently making college football picks decide on this. I am the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and completely sucked final season.
Like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A new coach brings a fresh mindset on making a statement, and with this being a game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and never have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even if you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville might be greater but Id submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their document rendered by an equally awkward trainer such as Petrino.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the public is right, and in this case they certainly are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
