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 selections on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and also I will detract to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will probably be the first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the very best teams in the country, and a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been placing wins forth and back so it appears like its my turn for the wreath, as I will accompany all the squares putting the thick lumber on a public road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point on the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered at a solid -20 across the board at all of the best online sportsbooks.
I like the Irish but youre currently leaning on the Cardinals. Aside from the venue do you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup at least and a convincing triumph IMO, said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Lets proceed to real soccer, will our recordings on this one and in which the games count.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to perform against competitions? They more than held their engineered and own upsets. These were fun games to see and the Cardinals were an club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win matches and to change the civilization and worked wonders. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. However , this is a huge moment for Louisville, a group which has the opportunity.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall since the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the shield that makes me more worried. You have up your Irish please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team last year, where they went winless coming from a dismal 2-10 record. This rebuild is comparable to trying to turn it and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team which made it to the CFP last year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
My query is, how can be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, designed to obtain any traction against a Irish shield? Especially when he is working with a trainer and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep up and I am desperate to the sage wisdom and handicapping expertise that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the sunny side of sport betting, or youre simply being the exact same wise a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by college football selections. Im the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last season.
However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons. 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 hope they will not be taken by the Irish and not have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/cant amuse like Bama or Clemson, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, because Louisville could be better but Id submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an coach such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street is square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the public is correct, and also in this instance they are. Until next week once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
