Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in 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 that I will detract to dip our feet.
It will probably be the very first and only time this season we do so, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the greatest teams in the nation, plus a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like it is my turn for the gold wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow the squares putting the thick lumber on a public road favorite.
After reviewing the school soccer odds nearly six days prior to the Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 round the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning onto the Cardinals although I enjoy the Irish. Apart from the venue is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, at least and a successful win IMO, said a lot about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Let us proceed to real football, so will our records on this one and in which the matches count.
Recall all those Thursday night matches Louisville utilized to play against opponents? They held their own and engineered many upsets. These were enjoyable games to see and the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out to change the civilization and win games and worked wonders. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. However this is a moment for Louisville, a group that has the chance to begin taking steps in the ideal direction.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the protection which makes me more worried. Please do tell why youve got up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing flying into this match as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and he has a group coming from a dismal record last year, where they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to attempting to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it to the CFP this past year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
My question is, how is a quarterback like Pass whos slow to discharge, designed to gain any traction against a swarming shield? Particularly when hes working with an offensive scheme and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep up with the Golden Domers and Im desperate for the ancestral wisdom and prodigious handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence youre coming over to the sunny side of sport betting, or you are simply being the same wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers that are currently making college football selections decide on this. Im the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and completely sucked final season.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A new trainer brings a new attitude and his team will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement with this being a national match. Louisville does have to trust the Irish will take them and not have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS when dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you said may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even if you dont/cant amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take some time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping that was impressive restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, because Louisville could be better than last year but I would submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an inept trainer such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but at times the people is correct, and in this instance they are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
