Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will deviate to dip our feet and leave our college football picks.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of exhibit NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the greatest teams in the nation, plus a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were endorsed by me. Weve been placing wins forth and back so it looks like its my turn to get the wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow all the squares putting the thick lumber on a public street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days before this Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered at a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever the best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but you are currently leaning to the Cardinals in this battle. Other than the venue do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup IMO and at least a convincing win, it said a great deal about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Let us move to football, will our recordings on this one and in which the matches rely.
Remember those Thursday night matches Louisville utilized to perform against competitions that are big-name? They more than held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an golf club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out to change the civilization and win matches and worked wonders. This will not happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a team that has the opportunity.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall since the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the protection, well, which makes me more nervous. Please do tell you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing since 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 last year, where they went winless coming off of a dismal 2-10 record. This rebuild is akin to attempting to turn it and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group that made it to the CFP last year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
My question is, how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, supposed to get any traction against a defense? Particularly when he is working with an offensive strategy and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate for prodigious handicapping experience and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence youre coming around to the glowing side of sport gambling, or youre just being the same shrewd a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by college football selections. I am the first to realize Louisville wasnt only 2-10, however 1-11 ATS and fully pumped last year.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A new trainer brings a new attitude on making a statement, and this being a federal match, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly with gold and the blue is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS when dishing out 20 or more specimens. This defense you said might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, if you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping resume, 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 I would submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record left by an trainer such as Petrino.
I know that placing 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 sometimes the people is correct, and in this case they certainly are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
