Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I shall detract to dip our toes and leave our school football selections.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this season we do so, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the greatest teams in the country, plus a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while the Titans were backed by me. We have been placing wins on and back so it appears like it is my turn to the golden wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will follow each of the squares laying the heavy lumber onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered in a solid -20 round the board at all the best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I enjoy the Irish but youre currently leaning in this season-opening battle onto the Cardinals. Aside from the venue do you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes at least and a convincing win IMO, said a great deal about both the Steelers and Titans management. Let us proceed to real soccer, where the matches rely and so will our recordings on this one.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to perform against big-name opponents? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were fun games to watch and also the Cardinals were an golf 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 the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win games and to alter the culture and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This will not happen immediately as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the chance.
I have 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. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the shield that makes me more nervous. Why you have up your Irish please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying in this game since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and hes got a group coming from a dismal album last year in which they went winless in ACC activity. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and trying to turn it.
While that may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group which made it to the CFP this past year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
My query is, how is a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, designed to get some traction against a defense that is Irish? Especially when hes working with a new coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to be able to keep pace with this Golden Domers and Im desperate for handicapping experience and your ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to read in your last sentence youre coming around to the bright side of sport gambling, or youre simply being the exact same wise a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are currently making that is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville was, however 1-11 ATS and completely sucked final season.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons, but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A coach brings a fresh mindset and his team will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement with this being a match. Louisville does have to hope not and the Irish will take them have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with the gold and blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you said may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, if you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it is going to take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because although youve got an impressive handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville could be better but I would submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record rendered by an coach like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but at times 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 once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
