Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our college football selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then also I will deviate to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the very best teams in the nation, and a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the debate following my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. We have been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like its my turn to the wreath, as I will follow all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school soccer odds nearly six days ahead of the Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 across the board at all the very best online sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning onto the Cardinals although I enjoy the Irish. Other than the venue is it that you think Louisville could hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, IMO and at least a convincing win, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us move to soccer, where the matches rely and will our records with this one.
Recall all those Thursday night matches Louisville used to perform against competitions? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were fun games and the Cardinals were an golf club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders in Appalachian State and are out to change the civilization and win matches. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down in theVille. However this is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the chance to begin taking actions.
I have read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall since the lead running back. The shield that makes me more nervous than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Why you have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and hes got a team coming off of a dismal album in which they went winless in ACC activity last year. This rebuild is akin to attempting to turn it and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it to 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 regular season and going 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 can be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, designed to gain any traction against a swarming shield? Especially when he is working with a completely new offensive strategy and a trainer?
Please, Doug, save me I am 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 to prodigious handicapping experience and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence youre coming on to the bright side of sport betting, or you are simply being the same shrewd a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are currently making school football picks decide on this. I am the first to understand Louisville was, however, 1-11 ATS and fully pumped last season.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons, but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new attitude is brought by A trainer and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement, with this being a federal game. Louisville does have to trust never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with all the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS if dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even if you dont/can not recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
I was being a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping that was impressive resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, because Louisville could be better but Id submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their own album rendered by an awkward trainer like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the road is square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but at times the general public is right, and also in this situation they surely are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
