Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will detract to dip our toes and render our school football picks.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the top teams in the country, and a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while the Titans were supported by me. We have been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn to get the golden wreath, as I will accompany the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days prior to the Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered in a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever of the very best online sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning on the Cardinals within this battle although doug, I love the Irish. Other than the place do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, a successful triumph and at least IMO, it said a great deal about both the Steelers and Titans management. Let us proceed to real soccer, where the matches rely and will our recordings on this one.
Remember Louisville used to perform against big-name opponents? They held their own and engineered many upsets. These were fun games and also the Cardinals were an club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles at Appalachian State and will be out to alter the civilization and win matches. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down in theVille. Yet , this is a moment for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity to begin taking actions in the ideal direction.
I have read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense, well, that makes me more nervous. You have your Irish up, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy inside their nest flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group last year, in which they went winless coming off of a dismal 2-10 record. This rebuild is comparable to attempting to turn it and carrying 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 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 offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
My question is, how will be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to discharge, designed to gain some traction against a defense? Especially when he is working with an offensive strategy and a new coach?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace and I am desperate to handicapping expertise that is prodigious and your sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to read in your last sentence you are coming around to the sunny side of sport betting, or youre just being the exact same shrewd a** you are. I will let the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by school football picks. I am the first to recognize Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 final year.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A trainer brings a new mindset and his team will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement this being a match. Louisville does have to hope the Irish will take them and never have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using the gold and blue is simply 10-13-1 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 season progresses but replacing five starters, even when you dont/can not amuse like Bama or Clemson, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, because Louisville might be greater but Id submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document left by an equally inept coach like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the people is correct, and also in this situation they surely are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
