Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in 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 I shall detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will probably be the very first and only time this season we do this, as the previous week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the greatest teams in the country, plus a legendary soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet about the Steelers while the Titans were endorsed by me. We have been placing wins forth and back so it looks like it is my turn to get the wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will accompany the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered in a solid -20 round the board whatsoever of the very best online sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but you are leaning onto the Cardinals. Besides the venue is it that you think Louisville can hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup at least and a successful win IMO, it said a lot about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move ahead to football, will our recordings with this one and where the matches count.
Recall Louisville utilized to perform against big-name competitions? They more than held their own and engineered many upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (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 are out win matches and to alter the civilization. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. Yet this is a big time for Louisville, a team that has the chance to start taking actions.
I have read where the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall since the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the shield, well, that makes me more nervous. Why you have up your Irish, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest, flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team this past year, in which they went winless coming from a dismal 2-10 album. This rebuild is comparable to seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group that made it to the CFP this past year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
So, my issue is, just how will be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to discharge, designed to obtain some traction against a shield that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with an entirely new offensive strategy and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep pace with this Golden Domers and I am desperate to the brand new wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming on to the glowing side of sports gambling, or youre just being the identical wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers who are currently making this is decided on by school football selections. I am the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and sucked last season.
However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons. A new coach brings a new attitude and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement, with this being a match. Louisville does have to hope they will not be taken by the Irish and never have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using the blue and gold is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS, when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you said may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, if you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take some time.
I was being a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping that was impressive resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, because Louisville could be better than last year but I would submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document left by an trainer such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the road is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the people is right, 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 squint at Louisville.
