Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our school football selections and that I shall detract to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the best clubs in the country, plus a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while the Titans were endorsed by me. We have been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn for the gold wreath, as I will accompany each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days before this Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered in a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning to the Cardinals although I enjoy the Irish. Other than the venue is it that you believe Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, a convincing win and IMO, it said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Let us proceed to real football, where the games count and so will our recordings on this one.
Remember Louisville used to perform against competitions that are big-name? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were fun games and the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and will be out win games and to alter the culture. This will not happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a group that has the chance to start taking actions in the ideal direction.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall since the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the protection, well, which makes me more worried. Please do tell why you have your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest, flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a group coming from a dismal 2-10 record this past year, where they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is comparable to seeking to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group which made it into the CFP last year and owned only 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 in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging 33 points per match over.
My issue is, how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, supposed to get some traction against a swarming Irish shield? Particularly when he is working with a new coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up with the Golden Domers and Im desperate to handicapping expertise that is prodigious and your brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to read in your last sentence youre coming on to the bright side of sport gambling, or youre simply being the same wise a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by school football selections. I am the first to realize Louisville fully pumped and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 final season.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A fresh mindset is brought by A trainer and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement this being a national game. Louisville does need to hope never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/can not recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville might be better but I would submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document rendered by an awkward trainer such as Petrino.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but at times the public is correct, and also in this situation they certainly are. Until next week when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
