Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our school football selections on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then also I shall deviate to dip our toes.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the very best clubs in the country, plus a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. Weve been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn for the gold wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will accompany the squares putting the thick lumber on a public street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days before this Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered in a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but you are leaning onto the Cardinals. Besides the place do you believe Louisville will hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup at least and a successful win IMO, said a lot about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Lets proceed to football, where the matches count and will our records on this one.
Recall Louisville utilized to play against big-name competitions? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were fun games to watch and also the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
But just for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles in Appalachian State and will be out win matches and to alter the culture. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a team that has the chance.
I have read where the Cards coaches 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. The protection, well, that makes me more worried than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. 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 into this match. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and he has a team this past year, where they went winless coming off of a dismal record. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team that made it to the CFP this past year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per match over.
My issue is, how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, supposed to get any traction against a defense? Particularly when hes working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a coach?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep pace and I am desperate for handicapping expertise and your brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence youre coming around to the sunny side of sport gambling, or you are simply being the same shrewd a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers who are currently making this is decided on by school football selections. I am the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and sucked last year.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons, but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A coach brings a fresh attitude and with this being a match, Satterfield will sell his team. Louisville does need to trust the Irish will take them and never have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly using the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you mentioned may improve as the season advances but substituting five starters, even if you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because although you have an impressive handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville could be better than last year but I would submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record rendered by an coach such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly 3 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 people is correct, and also in this situation they certainly 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 rumble in Louisville.
