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 match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and then I will deviate 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 previous week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the top clubs in the nation, plus a legendary football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a wager about the Steelers while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been placing wins back and on so it looks like it is my turn to get the golden wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days ahead of the Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered in a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever of the very best internet sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning on the Cardinals within this clash although doug, I like the Irish. Other than the place do you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes and a triumph IMO, it said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us move ahead to soccer, so will our records on this one and in which the games rely.
Remember Louisville utilized to play against big-name competitions? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were fun games to watch and also the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles in Appalachian State and are out win games and to change the culture. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. Nonethelessthis is a time for Louisville, a team which has the chance to begin taking actions in the right direction.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the shield which makes me more nervous. Please do tell why you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team last year, in which they went winless in ACC action coming off of a dismal 2-10 album. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it to the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per match.
My query is, how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, supposed to get some traction against a shield? Especially when hes working with a coach and an offensive scheme?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville will be able to keep up with this Golden Domers and I am desperate to handicapping experience and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to see in your last sentence youre coming on to the bright side of sport gambling, or you are simply being the same wise a** you usually are. I will allow the SBR readers who are making this is decided on by school football selections. Im the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and completely sucked final season.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A new attitude is brought by A trainer and with this being a game, Satterfield will sell his team. Louisville does have to hope never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and 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 said might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, when you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville might be greater but Id submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their document rendered by an coach such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but at times the general public is correct, and in this case they definitely are. Until next week when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
