Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I shall detract to dip our feet into uncharted waters and leave our college football picks on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will probably be the very first and only time this year 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 clubs 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 I endorsed the Titans. Weve been swapping wins on and back so it looks like its my turn for the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow all the squares laying the heavy lumber on a road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days before the Monday night affair, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered in a solid -20 across the board at all the best online sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but you are currently leaning in this battle on the Cardinals. Aside from the place is it that you think Louisville could hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes at least and a successful triumph IMO, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move to real soccer, so will our records with this one and in which the matches rely.
Recall all those Thursday night matches Louisville utilized to perform against big-name competitions? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles and will be out win games and to change the civilization. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall since the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the protection which makes me more nervous. Please do tell why you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much flying into this match since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group coming from a dismal 2-10 record in which they went winless last year. This rebuild is comparable to attempting to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is facing a team which made it into the CFP last year and owned 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 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
My issue is, how can be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, supposed to get any traction against a defense? Particularly when he is working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up with this Golden Domers and I am desperate for prodigious handicapping experience and your brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence youre coming over to the sunny side of sports betting, or youre just being the same shrewd a** you are. I will allow the SBR readers who are currently making that is decided on by college football picks. Im the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and fully pumped final season.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons, but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new mindset is brought by A new coach on making a statement and this being a federal game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and not have much fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using the gold and blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out more or 20 specimens. This defense you said may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it is going to take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was 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 instance, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville might be better but Id submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an equally awkward trainer such as Petrino.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the general public is correct, and in this instance they certainly are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
