Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our college football selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then also I shall detract to dip our feet.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this season we do this, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season game of NCAA football comprising one of the greatest teams in the nation, plus a legendary football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet on the Steelers 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 golden wreath, as I will accompany all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of the Monday night affair, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but you are currently leaning onto the Cardinals. Apart from the place do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes, Swinger, IMO and at least a successful win, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets move to real football, where the games rely and so will our recordings with this one.
Recall Louisville used to perform against competitions that are big-name? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an exciting club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win matches and to alter the civilization and worked miracles in Appalachian State. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the chance.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanisms 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 the protection that makes me more nervous. Why you have your Irish up, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing flying into this game as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and hes got a group coming off of a dismal record where they went winless this past year. This rebuild is akin to taking a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it to 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 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
So, my issue is, how can be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, designed to obtain any traction against a swarming shield? Especially when he is working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a coach?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate for handicapping experience that is prodigious and your brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to read in your last sentence youre coming over to the sunny side of sport gambling, or youre just being the exact shrewd a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers that are making this is decided on by school football selections. I am the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and completely sucked final season.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A new mindset is brought by A trainer and with this being a national game, Satterfield will sell his team on making a statement. Louisville does need to hope never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly with gold and the blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even if you dont/cant recruit like Bama or Clemson, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville might be better but Id submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document left by an equally inept trainer such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but at times the people is correct, and in this instance they are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
