Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our college football picks and also that I will deviate 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 in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA soccer featuring one of the top clubs in the country, and a legendary soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been placing wins forth and back so it appears like it is my turn for the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany the squares putting the thick lumber onto a public street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre leaning within this season-opening battle on the Cardinals. Apart from the place, why is it that you think Louisville can hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes, Swinger, IMO and at least a convincing triumph, said a lot about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Let us move ahead to soccer, where the games rely and will our records with this one.
Recall Louisville used to perform against competitions that are big-name? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch along with the Cardinals were an golf club.
However, just for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win matches and to change the civilization and worked miracles in Appalachian State. This will not occur right away because the talent level is down in theVille. This is a significant moment for Louisville, a team that has the chance to start taking actions.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the protection that makes me more worried. Why you have your Irish up, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group coming off of a dismal album last year where they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to trying to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it into the CFP this past year and owned 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 till they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per game.
My query is, just how is a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, supposed to get some traction against a Irish shield? Especially when hes working with a completely new offensive strategy and a coach?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace with this Golden Domers and I am desperate for prodigious handicapping expertise and your sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to see in your last sentence youre coming on to the sunny side of sports gambling, or you are just being the identical wise a** you usually are. Ill let the SBR readers who are currently making school football selections decide on that. I am the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and sucked final season.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new trainer brings a new mindset on creating a statement and this being a game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even when you dont/cant amuse like Bama or Clemson, it will take 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, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville may be better compared to last season but Id submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their own deplorable album made by an incompetent coach like Petrino.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the public is right, and also in this instance they definitely are. Until next week when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
