Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our college football picks on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then also I will detract to dip our toes.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the very best teams in the nation, and a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. We have been placing wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn for the gold wreath, as I will accompany all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a public street favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days before the Monday night affair, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered at a solid -20 round the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I enjoy the Irish but you are leaning on the Cardinals. Other than the place, why do you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes IMO and at least a convincing triumph, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Lets move to real football, so will our recordings on this one and in which the matches count.
Recall all those Thursday night matches Louisville used to play against competitions? They more than held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out to change the civilization and win games and worked miracles. This will not happen right away as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity to start taking steps.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall since the lead running back. The defense, well, that makes me more nervous than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Why you have up your Irish, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing flying into this game as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group coming off of a dismal 2-10 record this past year, in which they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to attempting to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it to the CFP this past year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per game over.
My issue is, how will be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to discharge, supposed to get any traction against a swarming Irish defense? Particularly when hes working with a new trainer and an entirely new offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up with the Golden Domers and I am desperate to handicapping experience that is prodigious and the sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming on to the bright side of sports betting, or youre just being the exact wise a** you are. I will let the SBR readers who are currently making college football selections decide on that. I am the first to understand Louisville was not only 2-10, however 1-11 ATS and fully pumped last year.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new coach brings a fresh attitude and this being a match, Satterfield will sell his staff on making a statement. Louisville does need to trust they will not be taken by the Irish and not have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using the gold and blue is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out 20 or more specimens. This defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even if you dont/cant recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville might be greater but I would submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document rendered by an trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the general public is right, and also in this case they surely 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 prepared to squint at Louisville.
