Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I shall deviate to dip our toes and then also leave our college football picks.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this season we do so, as the previous week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the very best clubs in the country, plus a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a wager about the Steelers while I backed the Titans. Weve been placing wins on and back so it appears like it is my turn for the golden wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow the squares laying the heavy lumber on a public street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days ahead of the Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered in a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but you are currently leaning onto the Cardinals. Aside from the venue, why do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup a successful triumph and IMO, it said a lot about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move ahead to football, where the matches rely and so will our records on this one.
Remember Louisville used to play against opponents? They more than held their engineered and own many upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles and are out to change the civilization and win matches. This will not happen immediately as the ability level is down in theVille. Yet , this is a time for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity.
I have read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall as the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the protection, well, that makes me more worried. Why you have your Irish up please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying into this game as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group coming from a dismal 2-10 record last year, in which they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team which made it to the CFP last year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging 33 points per game over.
My query is, just how is a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, designed to obtain any traction against a Irish defense? Especially when he is working with a new coach and an offensive scheme?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace with this Golden Domers and I am desperate for your brand new wisdom and handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the glowing side of sports betting, or youre just being the same shrewd a** you are. I will allow the SBR readers who are making this is decided on by school football selections. Im the first to understand Louisville fully pumped and was, however 1-11 ATS last year.
Like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new trainer brings a fresh attitude on building a statement and with this being a match, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust they will not be taken by the Irish and never have much fight.
Lets 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 more or 20 digits. That defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even whenever you dont/cant recruit like Bama or Clemson, it is going to take some time.
I was being a bit facetious because though you have an impressive handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, because Louisville could be better but Id submit that they are trained with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record rendered by an equally awkward trainer such as 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 on occasion the public is correct, and in this situation they 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.
