Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in 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 also I will detract to dip our toes.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this season we do this, as the previous week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the top clubs in the country, and a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a wager about the Steelers while I supported the Titans. We have been swapping wins on and back so it looks like it is my turn to get the wreath, as I will accompany each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 across the board whatsoever of the best online sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning to the Cardinals in this season-opening clash although doug, I love the Irish. Aside from the place do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, and a convincing win IMO, said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Let us move to football, so will our records on this one and where the matches count.
Remember those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to play against competitions? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were fun games and also the Cardinals were an golf club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and are out win matches and to alter the civilization. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a significant moment for Louisville, a team that has the chance to begin taking actions in the perfect direction.
Ive read where the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall as the lead running back. The defense which makes me more worried than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Why you have your Irish up, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing flying into this match since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 album last year, in which they went winless. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a group which made it into the CFP this past year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
My issue is, how is a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, designed to get any traction against a Irish shield? Especially when he is working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a 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 the Golden Domers and I am desperate to handicapping expertise that is prodigious and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the sunny side of sports gambling, or youre just being the exact shrewd a** you usually are. Ill let the SBR readers that are currently making that is decided on by college football selections. I am the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 last season.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A trainer brings a fresh attitude on creating a statement and this being a match, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS if dishing out 20 or more specimens. That defense you said may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, if you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville could be better compared to last year but I would submit that they are trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record rendered by an equally awkward trainer like Petrino.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the people is right, and also in this case they definitely are. Until next week when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
