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 game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and also I shall detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL discussion to dip our toes.
It will probably be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the greatest clubs in the nation, plus a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were endorsed by me. Weve been placing wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn to the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a public road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days ahead of the Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 across the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but you are currently leaning onto the Cardinals in this clash. Apart from the place, why do you think Louisville will hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes a triumph and IMO, it said a lot about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to real football, in which the matches count and so will our records on this one.
Remember Louisville used to perform against big-name competitions? They held their own and engineered many upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an club.
But just including the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out to alter the civilization and win games and worked tirelessly in Appalachian State. This will not happen right away as the ability level is down in theVille. Yet , this is a huge time for Louisville, a team that has the chance to start taking actions in the right direction.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 the defense that makes me more worried. Please do tell you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and he has a team coming from a dismal 2-10 album where they went winless this past year. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it to the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per game over.
My question is, just how can be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, supposed to get some traction against a shield that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with a new trainer and an offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will be able to keep up with the Golden Domers and Im desperate for the brand new wisdom and prodigious handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to read in your last sentence you are coming on to the bright side of sport gambling, or youre just being the identical wise a** you usually are. I will allow the SBR readers that are currently making that is decided on by school football picks. I am the first to understand Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 final year.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons, but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new mindset is brought by A new coach and his team will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement with this being a federal match. Louisville does need to trust they will not be taken by the Irish and also never have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with all the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS when dishing out more or 20 digits. That defense you said might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/can not recruit like Bama or Clemson, it is going to take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping that was impressive resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville could be greater but Id submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record left by an coach such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but at times the people is right, and in this case they are. Until when we get back 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.
