Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I will deviate from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our feet and then render our college football picks.
It will probably be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer featuring one of the best teams in the country, and a mythical football 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 while I supported the Titans. We have been placing wins back and forth so it appears like it is my turn for the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow the squares putting the thick lumber onto a public road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 round the board whatsoever the very best online sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning to the Cardinals within this season-opening clash although doug, I like the Irish. Besides the venue, why do you think Louisville can hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, a convincing win and IMO, it said a great deal about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Let us move ahead to real football, in which the matches count and will our records with this one.
Remember those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to play against big-name competitions? They held their own and engineered many upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles and are out win matches and to alter the culture. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. Nonethelessthis is a time for Louisville, a team that has the chance.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches 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. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the defense , well, that makes me more worried. You have your Irish up, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing flying in this match since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and hes got a group coming from a dismal record where they went winless last year. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it to the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per match.
My question is, how can be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, supposed to get some traction against a swarming shield? Particularly when hes working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form from which Louisville will be able to keep up and Im desperate for prodigious handicapping experience and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence youre coming over to the glowing side of sports betting, or you are just being the identical wise a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are currently making that is decided on by college football selections. I am the first to understand Louisville wasnt only 2-10, but 1-11 ATS and sucked final season.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons, but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new attitude is brought by A new trainer and with this being a federal game, Satterfield will sell his team. Louisville does need to hope never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with the blue and gold is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS, when dishing out more or 20 specimens. This defense you said may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, if you dont/cant recruit like Bama or Clemson, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I had been a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping that was impressive resumethat you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, because Louisville could be better than last year but Id submit that they are trained with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document left by an awkward trainer like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the people is correct, and in this situation they definitely are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
