Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I shall deviate to dip our feet into uncharted waters and then leave our college football selections on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the greatest clubs in the country, plus a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were backed by me. We have been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like it is my turn to get the wreath, as I will accompany each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but you are leaning on the Cardinals. Besides the venue is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, and a win IMO, said a lot about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Lets proceed to football, where the matches count and so will our records on this one.
Remember Louisville used to play against competitions? They held their own and engineered many upsets. These were fun games to see and the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win games and to change the civilization and worked wonders. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. However this is a time for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity to begin taking steps in the ideal direction.
I have read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall since the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the protection which makes me more worried. Please do tell why you have your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont 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 he has a group this past year, where they went winless coming from a dismal 2-10 record. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group which made it to the CFP last year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the regular season and heading a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
So, my question is, just how will be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, supposed to get any traction against a swarming defense? Especially when he is working with a coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep up with this Golden Domers and I am desperate for your sage wisdom and prodigious handicapping experience!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the sunny side of sports gambling, or youre just being the exact wise a** you usually are. I will allow the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by school football selections. I am the first to understand Louisville fully pumped and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 final season.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A trainer brings a new attitude making a statement, and with this being a game, his new team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to trust the Irish will take them and never have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using all the blue and gold is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS, if dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you said may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/cant amuse like Bama or Clemson, it is going to take some time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping that was impressive restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville might be better but I would submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document rendered by an equally awkward trainer such as Petrino.
I understand that laying nearly three 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 instance they surely are. Until when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
