Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our college football picks on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and then also that I will deviate from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our toes.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this season we do this, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA soccer featuring one of the top clubs in the nation, plus a legendary soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a wager about the Steelers while I backed the Titans. Weve been placing wins back and on so it appears like its my turn to the wreath, as I will follow the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days before the Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered at a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever the best internet sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning to the Cardinals although I like the Irish. Aside from the venue do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes a win and IMO, said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to football, where the matches rely and so will our records on this one.
Recall Louisville used to play against competitions that are big-name? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were fun games to see and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out to alter the civilization and win matches and worked miracles. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. Nonetheless, this is a major time for Louisville, a team which has the chance.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall since the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 the shield, well, that makes me more worried. Please do tell why youve got your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and hes got a group coming off of a dismal 2-10 record last year in which they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to seeking to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team that made it into the CFP last year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per game.
My issue is, just how will be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, supposed to gain some traction against a defense that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a coach?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will be able to keep up and I am desperate to the ancestral wisdom and prodigious handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the glowing side of sport gambling, or you are simply being the exact same shrewd a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers who are making that is decided on by college football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville wasnt only 2-10, however 1-11 ATS and fully pumped last season.
However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons. A trainer brings a new mindset on creating a statement, and this being a match, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and not have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS, when dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you said might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/can not amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be better than last year but Id submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record rendered by an coach like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but at times the general public is right, and also in this situation they certainly are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week next week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
