Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football picks on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and that I shall deviate to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will probably be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the top clubs in the country, plus a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a bet about the Steelers while the Titans were endorsed by me. We have been placing wins forth and back so it looks like its my turn to get the wreath, as I will accompany the squares laying the lumber onto a public road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college soccer odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 across the board whatsoever of the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but you are currently leaning on the Cardinals in this season-opening clash. Apart from the place is it that you think Louisville will hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup and a successful triumph IMO, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Lets move to real soccer, so will our recordings on this one and in which the matches rely.
Remember Louisville utilized to perform against opponents? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were fun games to see and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win matches and to change the culture and worked miracles. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a team which has the chance to begin taking steps in the right direction.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall since the lead running back. The defense, well, which makes me more worried than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Please do tell youve got your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team this past year, in which they went winless coming from a dismal album. This rebuild is comparable to seeking to turn it and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team that made it to 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 normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
My question is, how can be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, designed to gain any traction against a swarming shield that is Irish? Particularly when hes working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a coach?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep pace and Im desperate for the sage wisdom and prodigious handicapping experience!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the sunny side of sports gambling, or youre just being the exact identical wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers who are currently making this is decided on by school football picks. I am the first to understand Louisville was, but 1-11 ATS and fully pumped final year.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons, However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A coach brings a fresh attitude on making a statement and with this being a national game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope not and the Irish will take them have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using all the gold and blue is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS, when dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you said may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, when you dont/can not amuse like Bama or Clemson, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville could be greater but I would submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their document rendered by an equally inept trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the public is correct, and in this case they surely are. Until next week when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
