Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football picks and also that I will deviate to dip our feet.
It will probably be the first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the best clubs in the nation, and a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were endorsed by me. We have been swapping wins back and on so it looks like it is my turn for the wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
I like the Irish but you are leaning to the Cardinals. Aside from the place is it that you think Louisville can hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes IMO and at least a convincing triumph, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Lets proceed to real football, where the games rely and will our recordings with this one.
Remember Louisville used to perform against big-name competitions? They more than held their own and engineered many upsets. These were fun games to watch and the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and will be out win matches and to alter the culture. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a group that has the chance.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall because the lead running back. The shield which makes me more worried than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Why you have up your Irish please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest, flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and he has a group coming off of a dismal 2-10 record last year where they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it.
While that may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group that made it to the CFP last year and owned 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 Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
My query is, how is a quarterback like Pass who is slow to discharge, designed to obtain some traction against a Irish defense? Especially when hes working with a completely new offensive scheme and a coach?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep pace and Im desperate for handicapping experience and your sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to read in your last sentence youre coming over to the sunny side of sport betting, or youre simply being the same wise a** you usually are. I will allow the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by college football picks. Im the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last season.
But that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons. A new coach brings a fresh attitude and his new team will be sold by Satterfield making a statement this being a game. Louisville does need to hope the Irish will take them and not have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS, when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you said may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, if you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it is going to take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be better compared to last year but Id submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record rendered by an equally inept trainer such as Petrino.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street is square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the public is right, and in this situation they definitely are. Until when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
