Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I will detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our toes into uncharted waters and render our school football selections.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this season we do so, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the greatest clubs in the nation, plus a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like its my turn for the wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will follow each of the squares putting the thick lumber on a street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days before this Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered at a solid -20 round the board at all the best internet sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning to the Cardinals in this season-opening clash although I like the Irish. Other than the place, why is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup a convincing win and IMO, said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to football, in which the matches count and so will our records on this one.
Recall Louisville utilized to play against opponents that are big-name? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles and will be out to alter the culture and win matches. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a big moment for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity.
Ive read where the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the protection, well, that makes me more nervous. Please do tell why you have your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a group coming from a dismal 2-10 album last year, in which they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to taking a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group that made it to 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 till they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per match over.
My query is, how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, supposed to get any traction against a Irish defense? Particularly when hes working with a trainer and an offensive scheme?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep up with the Golden Domers and I am desperate for handicapping experience that is prodigious and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to read in your last sentence youre coming over to the sunny side of sports gambling, or youre just being the exact same shrewd a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are making that is decided on by college football picks. I am the first to realize Louisville was, however, 1-11 ATS and sucked last year.
Just like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A new mindset is brought by A trainer on creating a statement, and with this being a national game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope the Irish will take them for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS when dishing out more or 20 specimens. This defense you said may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/can not recruit like Bama or Clemson, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, because Louisville could be better than last year but Id submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document left by an trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street 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 also in this case they are. Until next week when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
