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 detract to dip our toes and render our school football picks.
It will probably be the first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the greatest teams in the nation, plus a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been swapping wins on and back so it looks like its my turn for the wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow all the squares laying the heavy lumber onto a public street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered at a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever of the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but you are currently leaning onto the Cardinals within this season-opening clash. Apart from the place do you believe Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes a convincing win and IMO, it said a lot about the management of both the Steelers and Titans. Lets proceed to real soccer, so will our recordings with this one and in which the games rely.
Recall those Thursday night matches Louisville used to perform against big-name competitions? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games to see and also the Cardinals were an exciting club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and are out win games and to alter the culture. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. However , this is a time for Louisville, a group which has the chance.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall as the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the protection which makes me more worried. You have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing 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 team last year, where they went winless in ACC action coming from a dismal album. This rebuild is comparable to trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a group that made it to the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson in 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 Pass whos slow to discharge, designed to gain some traction against a Irish defense? Particularly when he is working with a coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to be able to keep pace with the Golden Domers and Im desperate for handicapping experience that is prodigious and your brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to read in your last sentence youre coming around to the bright side of sport gambling, or youre simply being the identical shrewd a** you are. I will allow the SBR readers who are currently making school football picks decide on that. Im the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 last year.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A trainer brings a new mindset and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement, with this being a game. Louisville does need to hope the Irish will take them and not have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS, if dishing out more or 20 digits. That defense you said might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, if you dont/can not recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it will take some time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville could be greater than last year but Id submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record rendered by an trainer such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but at times the public is correct, and also in this case they are. Until next week once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
