Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our college football selections on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and then I will detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL discussion to dip our toes.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the greatest teams in the country, and a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a wager about the Steelers while I endorsed the Titans. Weve been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn to get the wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will follow all the squares laying the heavy lumber onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered in a solid -20 throughout the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
I like the Irish but youre leaning onto the Cardinals in this clash. Other than the venue do you think Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes a win and at least IMO, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move to real soccer, so will our records on this one and where the matches count.
Recall Louisville utilized to perform against competitions? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were fun games and also the Cardinals were an exciting club.
However, 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 at Appalachian State and are out win matches and to change the civilization. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down in theVille. Nonetheless, this is a time for Louisville, a team that has the chance to start taking actions.
Ive read where the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall because the lead running back. The defense which makes me more worried than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. Why you have your Irish up, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group coming off of a dismal 2-10 record in which they went winless in ACC action this past year. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and trying to turn it.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting 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 normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging over 33 points per game.
My question is, how can be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, designed to gain some traction against a shield that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with a new trainer and an offensive strategy that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace with this Golden Domers and Im desperate for handicapping experience that is prodigious and the sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the sunny side of sports betting, or youre just being the same wise a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by college football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and completely sucked last year.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons, However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new trainer brings a fresh mindset and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement, this being a national match. Louisville does have to trust the Irish will take them and not have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with all the gold and blue is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also when dishing out 20 or more specimens, a ATS. This defense you said may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, because Louisville could be better compared to last year but Id submit that they are educated by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record rendered by an equally inept trainer like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the public is right, and in this situation they surely are. Until once we get down 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.
