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 game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and also I will deviate to dip our feet.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the greatest teams in the country, plus a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while I endorsed the Titans. We have been placing wins on and back so it appears like it is my turn for the golden wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany all the squares laying the heavy lumber onto a road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I enjoy the Irish but youre leaning within this season-opening clash onto the Cardinals. Aside from the place, why is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup and a win IMO, it said a lot about both the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us proceed to soccer, where the games count and so will our recordings on this one.
Remember Louisville utilized to perform against opponents? They more than held their engineered and own upsets. These were fun games to see and also the Cardinals were an exciting club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out to alter the culture and win games and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a team that has the chance to start taking actions in the ideal direction.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the shield which makes me more nervous. You have your Irish up please dont forget.
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 currently in the big leagues and hes got a group coming from a dismal 2-10 record in which they went winless in ACC action last year. This rebuild is comparable to taking a hot air balloon and trying to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a group which made it into the CFP this past year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per game.
My issue is, just how can be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, designed to gain any traction against a shield? Particularly when he is working with a coach and an offensive scheme?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up and I am desperate to prodigious handicapping expertise and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am happy to read in your last sentence you are coming around to the bright side of sport betting, or you are simply being the identical shrewd a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers that are making school football picks decide on this. I am the first to understand Louisville wasnt only 2-10, however, 1-11 ATS and sucked last year.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons, However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new coach brings a fresh attitude on building a statement and with this being a federal match, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS if dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you said may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even if you dont/cant recruit like Bama or Clemson, it is going to take time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be greater but Id submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an awkward trainer like Petrino.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the general public is correct, and in this case they certainly are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
