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 on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then also that I will detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the top clubs in the nation, and a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet about the Steelers while the Titans were supported by me. We have been placing wins forth and back so it appears like it is my turn for the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered at a solid -20 round the board at all of the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I enjoy the Irish but you are leaning within this clash on the Cardinals. Apart from the venue, why is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes a triumph and IMO, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets proceed to football, where the matches count and so will our recordings with this one.
Remember those Thursday night matches Louisville used to perform against opponents that are big-name? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were fun games to see and also the Cardinals were an golf club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win matches and to change the civilization and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a team which has the chance to start taking actions.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the shield, well, which makes me more nervous. Why you have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team last year, in which they went winless coming from a dismal album. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it into the CFP last year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the normal 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 query is, just how can be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, supposed to obtain some traction against a shield that is Irish? Especially when hes working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep up and Im desperate to the sage wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to read in your last sentence you are coming over to the sunny side of sport betting, or you are just being the identical shrewd a** you usually are. I will allow the SBR readers who are currently making school football selections decide on that. I am the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 final season.
Just like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new coach brings a new mindset and his team will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement, with this being a match. Louisville does have to hope not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS, when dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/can not amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be better than last year but I would submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record rendered by an equally inept coach such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but at times the public is right, and also in this instance they definitely are. Until when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
