Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our school football selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and I shall detract to dip our toes.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA soccer featuring one of the top clubs in the nation, and a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. We have been swapping wins back and forth so it appears like it is my turn to get the wreath, as I will follow the squares putting the thick lumber onto a public road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered in a solid -20 round the board whatsoever the best internet sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning on the Cardinals although doug, I love the Irish. Aside from the place is it that you think Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup a successful win and IMO, said a lot about both the Steelers and Titans management. Lets proceed to real football, so will our recordings on this one and where the matches count.
Recall Louisville utilized to play against competitions? They more than held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and 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 worked wonders in Appalachian State and will be out win matches and to change the culture. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a group which has the chance.
I have read where the Cards tutors have sped up the sluggish mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great title for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the protection, well, that makes me more nervous. You have up your Irish, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy inside their nest, flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team coming off of a dismal album where they went winless in ACC action this past year. This rebuild is comparable to trying 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 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 moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per game over.
My query is, just how will be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, designed to gain some traction against a swarming defense that is Irish? Especially when he is working with a completely new offensive strategy and a new coach?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to be able to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate for handicapping experience and the sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am happy to read in your last sentence you are coming on to the glowing side of sports gambling, or you are just being the exact wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers who are making this is decided on by college football selections. Im the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and fully pumped final season.
Like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A fresh attitude is brought by A coach on creating a statement, and with this being a game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to trust never and the Irish will take them for granted have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with all the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS, if dishing out 20 or more specimens. This defense you mentioned may improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, whenever you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take time.
I was being a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville might be better than last year but Id submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record left by an trainer like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the people is correct, and also in this situation they certainly are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
