Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I will detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL debate to dip our feet into uncharted waters and render our school football picks on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will probably be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the very best clubs in the nation, plus a legendary football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while I endorsed the Titans. Weve been placing wins on and back so it appears like it is my turn to the golden wreath, as I will follow all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a public road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days before the Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered in a solid -20 across the board at all the best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but youre currently leaning to the Cardinals. Besides the place do you think Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes a convincing triumph and IMO, it said a lot about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us proceed to soccer, so will our records onto this one and where the matches count.
Recall Louisville used to perform against opponents? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games to see and the Cardinals were an golf club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win games and to change the civilization and worked wonders. This will not happen immediately as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team that has the chance to start taking actions.
Ive read where the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall since the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the defense, well, which makes me more nervous. Please do tell you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest, flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 album in which they went winless in ACC action last year. This rebuild is akin to seeking to turn it and carrying a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group that made it to the CFP this past year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per match.
So, my query is, just how is a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, supposed to obtain some traction against a defense that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with a completely new offensive scheme and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace and I am desperate for the ancestral wisdom and handicapping experience!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am happy to read in your last sentence youre coming around to the bright side of sport gambling, or youre simply being the same wise a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers who are making school football selections decide on this. I am the first to understand Louisville sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 last year.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons, but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new coach brings a fresh attitude and this being a national match, Satterfield will sell his team on building a statement. Louisville does have to hope the Irish will take them for granted and not have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it is going to take some time.
I was a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, because Louisville might be greater than last year but I would submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record rendered by an trainer like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the people is correct, and also in this instance they certainly are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
