Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will deviate from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our toes into uncharted waters and render our college football picks on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will most likely be the first and only time this season we do this, as the previous week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the top teams in the country, and a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet about the Steelers while I backed the Titans. Weve been placing wins back and forth so it appears like its my turn to the golden wreath, since I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow all the squares putting the thick lumber on a public road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days ahead of the Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered at a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but you are leaning on the Cardinals in this season-opening clash. Aside from the venue, why is it that you believe Louisville could hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, a successful triumph and IMO, said a great deal about the management of both the Steelers and Titans. Lets proceed to real soccer, in which the matches rely and so will our recordings on this one.
Remember those Thursday night games Louisville used to perform against big-name competitions? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were fun games to see and also the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders at Appalachian State and will be out to change the civilization and win matches. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. However , this is a significant moment for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity to begin taking steps in the perfect direction.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall as the lead running back. The shield, well, which makes me more worried than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Please do tell why you have your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much flying in this match as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and he has a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 album where they went winless in ACC activity this past year. This rebuild is comparable to taking a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team which 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 normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per match.
So, my question is, how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, supposed to obtain some traction against a swarming Irish defense? Particularly when he is working with a new trainer and a completely new offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to be able to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate for handicapping expertise that is prodigious and the sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the bright side of sport betting, or you are just being the same wise a** you are. I will allow the SBR readers that are making this is decided on by college football picks. I am the first to realize Louisville sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last season.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A trainer brings a fresh attitude and his team will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement this being a national game. Louisville does have to hope the Irish will take them and not have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and if dishing out 20 or more digits, a mere 7-9-1 ATS. This defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, when you dont/cant recruit like Bama or Clemson, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be better but Id submit that they are trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document rendered by an equally inept trainer like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the public is correct, and in this case they certainly are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
