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 selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then also I will detract to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
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 compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the top teams in the country, plus a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my friend 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 looks like it is my turn for the wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will follow each of the squares putting the thick lumber on a public street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days before this Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered at a solid -20 round the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but you are currently leaning on the Cardinals in this clash. Apart from the venue is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup IMO and at least a successful triumph, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Lets move to soccer, in which the matches rely and will our recordings with this one.
Recall Louisville utilized to perform against big-name opponents? They held their own and engineered many upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an club.
However, such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and are out to change the culture and win games. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a group that has the chance to start taking actions.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches have sped 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 the shield, well, that makes me more nervous. You have up your Irish, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team coming from a dismal album where they went winless this past year. This rebuild is akin to taking a hot air balloon and trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it to the CFP this past year and owned 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 till they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense has been clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
So, my question is, how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, designed to obtain any traction against a swarming shield that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with a coach and an offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep up and Im desperate for handicapping expertise and your brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the glowing side of sports gambling, or youre simply being the same shrewd a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are currently making that is decided on by school football picks. I am the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 final year.
However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons. A new attitude is brought by A trainer and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement, with this being a national match. Louisville does have to expect never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with all the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, if you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping that was impressive restart , then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be greater but Id submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document left by an trainer like Petrino.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the public is right, and in this case they certainly are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
