Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I will deviate to dip our toes and then render our school football selections.
It will probably be the first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the top teams in the nation, plus a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a wager about the Steelers while I endorsed the Titans. Weve been swapping wins back and on so it appears like its my turn to the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days ahead of the 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 its now offered at a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but you are currently leaning in this season-opening clash onto the Cardinals. Besides the place, why is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes IMO and a successful win, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us proceed to real soccer, so will our recordings with this one and where the matches rely.
Recall all those Thursday night games Louisville used to perform against opponents that are big-name? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were fun games to watch and the Cardinals were an golf club.
However, such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders at Appalachian State and are out to change the civilization and win games. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. However this is a significant moment for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the defense, well, that makes me more nervous. Why you have your Irish up, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and hes got a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 record last year, in which they went winless. This rebuild is akin to trying to turn it and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group which made it into the CFP last year and possessed only 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 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
So, my question is, how can be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to discharge, designed to obtain some traction against a shield that is Irish? Especially when he is working with a new trainer and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will be able to keep pace with this Golden Domers and Im desperate for the brand new wisdom and handicapping expertise that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the sunny side of sport betting, or you are simply being the identical wise a** you usually are. I will allow the SBR readers who are making this is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville completely sucked and wasnt just 2-10, however 1-11 ATS last season.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new coach brings a new attitude and his team will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement, this being a federal match. Louisville does have to hope the Irish will take them and not have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using all the blue and gold is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS if dishing out 20 or more specimens. That defense you said may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, if you dont/can not amuse like Bama or Clemson, it will take some time.
I was a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville might be greater compared to last year but I would submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record rendered by an equally awkward coach like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that putting nearly 3 touchdowns on the road is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but at times the general public is right, and in this instance they definitely are. Until next week once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
