Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football picks on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then I shall deviate to dip our feet.
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 some regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the greatest teams in the country, plus a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been placing wins back and on so it looks like its my turn to get the wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will accompany the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days before the Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the best internet sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but you are leaning on the Cardinals. Aside from the place is it that you believe Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes IMO and a successful win, it said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets move to real soccer, so will our recordings on this one and where the matches rely.
Recall Louisville used to perform against competitions? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out win matches and to alter the civilization and worked miracles in Appalachian State. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a significant moment for Louisville, a group which has the chance to start taking actions.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. The shield which makes me more worried than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Please do tell why you have your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying into this match since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and he has a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 record this past year where they went winless. This rebuild is akin to taking a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While this may eventually occur, the issue 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, surrendering just 17.2 points within the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per game over.
My question is, just how is a quarterback like Pass who is slow to discharge, designed to obtain any traction against a defense that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with an entirely new offensive strategy and a trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will be able to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate to handicapping expertise that is prodigious and your ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence youre coming over to the sunny side of sports gambling, or you are just being the exact shrewd a** you are. I will let the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by college football picks. Im the first to realize Louisville was not just 2-10, however 1-11 ATS and sucked last year.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A new mindset is brought by A new trainer on building a statement, and with this being a match, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope not and the Irish will take them for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping that was impressive restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be greater but Id submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document left by an trainer like Petrino.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but at times the people is correct, and also in this instance 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 prepared to rumble in Louisville.
