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 detract to dip our feet and also leave our school football picks.
It will almost certainly 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 game of NCAA football comprising one of the greatest teams in the nation, and a mythical soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a wager on the Steelers while the Titans were supported by me. Weve been swapping wins on and back so it appears like it is my turn to the golden wreath, as I will follow all the squares laying the lumber onto a public street favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days before this Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered at a solid -20 round the board whatsoever the best internet sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning onto the Cardinals within this season-opening clash although I like the Irish. Besides the venue, why is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, a successful win and at least IMO, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move ahead to football, so will our recordings with this one and where the games rely.
Recall Louisville used to play against competitions? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were fun games and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win matches and to alter the culture and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. Nonethelessthis is a big time for Louisville, a group which has the opportunity.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall since the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the defense that makes me more worried. Why you have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and he has a team coming from a dismal 2-10 record where they went winless in ACC action last year. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group which made it into the CFP last year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per match.
My question is, just how will be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, designed to gain some traction against a swarming Irish shield? Especially when hes working with a new trainer and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep pace and Im desperate for the sage wisdom and prodigious handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the bright side of sport gambling, or you are just being the exact shrewd a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers that are making college football picks decide on that. Im the first to realize Louisville sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 final year.
But that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons. A fresh mindset is brought by A trainer on making a statement and this being a match, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and if dishing out 20 or more specimens, a mere 7-9-1 ATS. That defense you said might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, when 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 although you have an handicapping that was impressive resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville might be better than last year but I would submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document left by an trainer such as Petrino.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the people is right, and in this instance they definitely are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
