Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I shall detract to dip our feet and also leave our college football picks on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will probably be the first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the best teams in the nation, and a legendary soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a wager about the Steelers while I endorsed the Titans. Weve been placing wins back and on so it appears like its my turn to the golden wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will accompany the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 throughout the board at all the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but youre leaning within this season-opening clash on the Cardinals. Other than the venue, why do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup a convincing win and at least IMO, it said a great deal about both the Steelers and Titans management. Let us proceed to soccer, where the games count and so will our recordings on this one.
Recall those Thursday night matches Louisville used to perform against opponents? They more than held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games to see and the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and will be out to alter the culture and win games. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a group which has the opportunity.
I have read where the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. The protection, well, which makes me more nervous than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Why you have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team coming from a dismal 2-10 album in which they went winless in ACC action this past year. 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 facing a group that made it into the CFP this past year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per match over.
My question is, just how will be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, designed to obtain some traction against a swarming shield? Particularly when hes working with a new coach and an offensive scheme?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to be able to keep up with the Golden Domers and Im desperate to prodigious handicapping experience and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to read in your last sentence youre coming on to the bright side of sports gambling, or youre just being the exact shrewd a** you usually are. Ill let the SBR readers who are currently making this is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to realize Louisville fully pumped and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last season.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons, However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A trainer brings a fresh attitude on creating a statement and this being a 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.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS if dishing out more or 20 digits. That defense you said might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, when you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping that was impressive resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, because Louisville might be better than last year but I would submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record left by an coach 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 sometimes the public is correct, and also in this instance they are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week next week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
