Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our college football selections on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then I will detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL debate to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the best teams in the country, and a mythical soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while the Titans were supported by me. We have been swapping wins back and forth so it appears like its my turn to get the golden wreath, as I will accompany the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public street favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days prior to 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 now offered in a solid -20 round the board at all of the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but youre leaning within this battle onto the Cardinals. Other than the place is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes at least and a win IMO, it said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets move ahead to real soccer, so will our records on this one and in which the matches count.
Recall those Thursday night matches Louisville used to play against opponents? They held their own and engineered many upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an exciting club.
But just like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out to alter the civilization and win matches and worked wonders. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. Nonetheless, this is a significant time for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity to begin taking steps in the right direction.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the protection that makes me more nervous. Why you have your Irish up, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest, flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and he has a team coming from a dismal 2-10 record this past year, in which they went winless in ACC activity. This rebuild is comparable to attempting to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it to the CFP last year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per game.
My question is, just how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, designed to gain some traction against a swarming Irish defense? Especially when he is working with a completely new offensive strategy and a trainer?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep pace with this Golden Domers and I am desperate to handicapping experience that is prodigious and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to read in your last sentence you are coming on to the sunny side of sport betting, or youre simply being the identical wise a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers who are making school football selections decide on this. Im the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and fully pumped final season.
Like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A coach brings a new mindset and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement this being a match. Louisville does need to trust never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly with the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS when dishing out 20 or more specimens. That defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because though you have an impressive handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, because Louisville could be greater compared to last year but I would submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record left by an awkward trainer like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly three touchdowns on the road is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the people is right, and in this case they surely are. Until next week when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
