Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our college football selections on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then that I shall deviate to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the top teams in the nation, plus a legendary football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I backed the Titans. We have been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like its my turn to the golden wreath, as I will follow the squares laying the heavy lumber onto a public street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days ahead of the Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but youre currently leaning within this season-opening battle on the Cardinals. Aside from the place, why is it that you think Louisville could hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, a successful triumph and IMO, said a great deal about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Let us move to soccer, will our recordings on this one and where the matches rely.
Remember all those Thursday night matches Louisville used to perform against big-name opponents? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and also the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles in Appalachian State and will be out win games and to alter the culture. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. Yet this is a time for Louisville, a group that has the chance to start taking actions in the perfect direction.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall because the lead running back. The protection that makes me more worried than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. You have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much 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, in which they went winless in ACC action coming from a dismal record. This rebuild is akin to taking a hot air balloon and trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group that made it to the CFP this past 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 has been clicking on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per game.
My question is, how can be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, designed to gain any traction against a swarming shield that is Irish? Particularly when hes working with a new trainer and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep up with this Golden Domers and Im desperate for your ancestral wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the glowing side of sports betting, or youre simply being the same shrewd a** you usually are. I will allow the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by college football picks. Im the first to realize Louisville fully pumped and was, however 1-11 ATS last season.
Just like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons, but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new mindset is brought by A trainer and his team will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement, this being a federal match. Louisville does need to trust they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and never have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using all the blue and gold is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and when dishing out 20 or more digits, a ATS. This defense you said might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/cant amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although you have an impressive handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be better but Id submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their document rendered by an coach like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the public is right, and in this case they really are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
