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 selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then also I shall detract to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the top clubs in the country, plus a legendary football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a wager on the Steelers while I supported the Titans. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it appears like its my turn to get the gold wreath, as I will accompany all the squares putting the thick lumber on a public road favorite and endorse the Irish.
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, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered in a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but youre currently leaning on the Cardinals. Apart from the venue do you think Louisville will hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes, Swinger, IMO and at least a convincing triumph, it said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets proceed to real soccer, so will our recordings on this one and in which the matches count.
Recall Louisville used to perform against opponents? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an club.
But just like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and will be out to change the culture and win games. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms 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 23, the shield, well, which makes me more worried. Please do tell you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy inside their nest, flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team coming off of a dismal record last year in which they went winless in ACC activity. This rebuild is comparable to trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group which made it to the CFP last year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders as well, averaging over 33 points per game.
My issue is, how can be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, supposed to obtain some traction against a swarming defense? Particularly when hes working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a coach?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep up and Im desperate for handicapping experience that is prodigious and the sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to see in your last sentence you are coming on to the glowing side of sports gambling, or youre simply being the same shrewd a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are making this is decided on by college football selections. Im the first to understand Louisville completely sucked and was not just 2-10, however 1-11 ATS last year.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new trainer brings a fresh attitude on creating a statement, and this being a game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using all the blue and gold is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, if you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it will take time.
I was a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, because Louisville could be better compared to last year but I would submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their document rendered by an trainer like 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 road chalk, but sometimes the public is correct, and in this case they are. Until next week when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
