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 and then also I will deviate to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do this, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the very best teams in the country, and a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. Weve been placing wins back and forth so it appears like it is my turn to the golden wreath, as I will accompany each of the squares laying the heavy lumber on a public street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but youre leaning in this season-opening battle on the Cardinals. Other than the place, why do you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, and a convincing triumph IMO, said a great deal about both the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets move to real football, so will our recordings with this one and where the matches rely.
Remember those Thursday night games Louisville used to play against opponents that are big-name? They more than held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an exciting club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out win games and to alter the civilization and worked wonders. This will not happen immediately as the ability level is down in theVille. Nonetheless, this is a moment for Louisville, a team that has the chance to start taking actions in the right direction.
I have read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall as the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the shield, well, that makes me more worried. You have up your Irish please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying in this match as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and hes got a group last year, in which they went winless coming from a dismal album. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team which made it into the CFP last 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 fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging 33 points per match over.
My issue is, how is a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, supposed to gain some traction against a swarming defense? Especially when he is working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a coach?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville will be able to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate to your sage wisdom and handicapping experience!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence you are coming on to the glowing side of sports gambling, or youre simply being the exact wise a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are currently making that is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville fully pumped and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last season.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A fresh mindset is brought by A coach on making a statement, and with this being a match, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to trust the Irish will take them for granted and not have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly using all the blue and gold is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, if you dont/cant recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping that was impressive resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be better but Id submit that they are trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record left by an coach like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but at times the general public is correct, and in this instance they surely are. Until next week when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
