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 from our regularly scheduled program of NFL discussion to dip our toes and leave our college football picks on the Monday night game 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 last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the top clubs in the nation, and a legendary soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were backed by me. We have been placing wins back and on so it looks like its my turn to get the gold wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will accompany all the squares laying the lumber onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 throughout the board at all the best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but youre currently leaning on the Cardinals within this clash. Apart from the place, why is it that you think Louisville will hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes, Swinger, and a triumph IMO, said a great deal about the management of both the Steelers and Titans. Let us move to real soccer, in which the games count and will our recordings on this one.
Recall those Thursday night matches Louisville utilized to perform against opponents that are big-name? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were fun games to watch and also the Cardinals were an exciting club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out win matches and to change the culture and worked miracles in Appalachian State. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. Yet , this is a moment for Louisville, a team that has the opportunity.
I have read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall as the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the protection which makes me more worried. You have up your Irish please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest, flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and he has a team coming from a dismal 2-10 record this past year, where they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to seeking to turn it and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team 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 regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per game.
My issue is, how can be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, designed to gain any traction against a defense that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a trainer?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will be able to keep up and Im desperate to the brand new wisdom and handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the sunny side of sport gambling, or you are just being the same wise a** you are. I will allow the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by college football picks. I am the first to realize Louisville fully pumped and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 final season.
However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons. A coach brings a new attitude and his team will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement, this being a game. Louisville does need to trust not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS if dishing out more or 20 specimens. This defense you said might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, when you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping that was impressive resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville might be greater than last year but I would submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record rendered by an coach such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the public is correct, and in this situation they definitely are. Until next week when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
