Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I shall detract to dip our feet into uncharted waters and also leave our school football picks on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this season we do so, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the top clubs in the country, plus a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while I endorsed the Titans. We have been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like it is my turn to the wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will follow the squares laying the heavy lumber onto a road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days prior to the Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning onto the Cardinals within this battle although I love the Irish. Other than the place, why do you believe Louisville will hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, IMO and a successful win, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets move ahead to football, will our recordings on this one and in which the matches count.
Recall those Thursday night matches Louisville utilized to perform against big-name opponents? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were fun games and also the Cardinals were an club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles and will be out to alter the culture and win matches. This will not happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. Nevertheless this is a moment for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the protection that makes me more nervous. You have up your Irish please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy inside their nest, flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and he has a group this past year, in which they went winless in ACC action coming off of a dismal album. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually occur, 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, surrendering just 17.2 points over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
My issue is, how can be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, designed to gain some traction against a Irish shield? Especially when hes working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep pace and I am desperate for the ancestral wisdom and handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the bright side of sport betting, or youre simply being the identical shrewd a** you are. I will allow the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by school football picks. I am the first to realize Louisville was, however 1-11 ATS and completely sucked final season.
Just like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A fresh attitude is brought by A new coach on making a statement, and with this being a game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope the Irish will accept them for granted and also never have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using 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 more or 20 digits. That defense you mentioned may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, if you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it will take time.
I was a bit facetious because although you have an impressive handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville might be greater but I would submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record left by an trainer like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street 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, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
