Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our feet and then leave our college football picks.
It will most likely be the first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the very best teams in the nation, and a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while the Titans were endorsed by me. Weve been swapping wins back and on so it looks like it is my turn to get the wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will follow the squares putting the thick lumber onto a road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night affair, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered in a solid -20 round the board at all the very best online sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning onto the Cardinals although doug, I enjoy the Irish. Apart from the venue, why is it that you think Louisville will hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup a convincing triumph and IMO, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us move to real football, so will our records on this one and in which the matches count.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville used to play against opponents that are big-name? They more than held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and also the Cardinals were an club.
But just like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out win matches and to change the culture and worked wonders. This will not happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a huge time for Louisville, a team that has the opportunity.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. The shield, well, that makes me more worried than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. Please do tell you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group coming off of a dismal album last year in which they went winless. This rebuild is akin to attempting to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it into the CFP this past year and possessed only 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 fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
My query is, how will be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to discharge, supposed to gain some traction against a defense that is Irish? Especially when he is working with a new coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find 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 and your brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the bright side of sport gambling, or you are just being the exact wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by college football selections. I am the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and fully pumped final year.
However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons. A new trainer brings a new attitude and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement with this being a match. Louisville does have to hope the Irish will take them and not have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and when dishing out 20 or more digits, a ATS. That defense you said might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/cant recruit like Bama or Clemson, it is going to take time.
I was a bit facetious because although you have an impressive handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville might be greater compared to last year but I would submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record left by an coach like Petrino.
I know that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but at times the general public is right, and also in this case they are. Until next week once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
