Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will deviate to dip our feet into uncharted waters and then leave our college football picks on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will probably be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the greatest teams in the country, plus a mythical soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a wager on the Steelers while I endorsed the Titans. We have been swapping wins forth and back so it appears like its my turn to the gold wreath, as I will follow the squares putting the thick lumber on a road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days before this Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered in a solid -20 round the board at all of the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but you are currently leaning within this season-opening clash to the Cardinals. Aside from the venue, why do you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes a win and at least IMO, it said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move ahead to real soccer, will our records on this one and in which the matches rely.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville used to play against opponents? They more than held their engineered and own upsets. These were fun games to watch and the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But just like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (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 culture and win games and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team that has the chance to begin taking steps.
Ive read where the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 the protection, well, that makes me more nervous. Please do tell youve got your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team coming from a dismal record where they went winless in ACC action this past year. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and trying to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it into the CFP this past year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
So, my question is, how can be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, designed to obtain any traction against a swarming shield that is Irish? Especially when he is working with a completely new offensive scheme and a coach?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep pace and I am desperate to your ancestral wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence youre coming over to the glowing side of sport betting, or you are simply being the exact same shrewd a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are currently making college football picks decide on this. I am the first to realize Louisville fully pumped and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last year.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new mindset is brought by A coach on creating a statement, and this being a national game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to trust not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with all the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you said may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, if you dont/can not amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it will take some time.
I was being a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be greater than last year but Id submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record rendered by an trainer such as Petrino.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the general public is right, and also in this instance they are. Until when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
