Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football picks on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then I will deviate to dip our toes.
It will probably be the first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the very best teams in the country, plus a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while I supported the Titans. We have been swapping wins back and on so it appears like it is my turn for the wreath, as I will accompany all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 throughout the board at all the best internet sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning on the Cardinals although doug, I love the Irish. Other than the venue do you think Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup and a triumph IMO, it said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Let us move ahead to soccer, where the matches count and so will our recordings on this one.
Recall those Thursday night matches Louisville used to perform against competitions? They more than held their engineered and own many upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an golf club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win games and to alter the civilization and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a major moment for Louisville, a group which has the opportunity to begin taking actions in the ideal direction.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the shield that makes me more nervous. Why you have up your Irish please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much flying into this match since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and hes got a team this past year, where they went winless coming off of a dismal 2-10 record. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it to the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders as well, averaging over 33 points per game.
So, my query is, how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, supposed to gain some traction against a defense? Especially when he is working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep pace and I am desperate for your sage wisdom and handicapping expertise that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence youre coming around to the bright side of sport betting, or you are just being the identical wise a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are making this is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and sucked final season.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A fresh mindset is brought by A trainer on building a statement and this being a game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope never and the Irish will take them for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS, when dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even whenever you dont/cant amuse like Bama or Clemson, it is going to take some time.
I was being a bit facetious because although you have an impressive handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville might be greater than last year but Id submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document left by an coach like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but at times the people is correct, and also in this case they are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
