Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football picks on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and I will deviate from our regularly scheduled program of NFL discussion to dip our feet.
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 very best clubs in the nation, and a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us 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 back and forth so it looks like it is my turn to the golden wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will accompany all the squares laying the heavy lumber on a public road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days before the Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered at a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but you are currently leaning within this clash on the Cardinals. Besides the venue, why do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup at least and a win IMO, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move ahead to football, so will our recordings with this one and where the matches count.
Recall Louisville utilized to perform against big-name competitions? They more than held their own and engineered several upsets. These were fun games and the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
However, such as the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles and will be out to change the civilization and win matches. This will not happen right away as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a group with the chance.
I have read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall as the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the shield, well, that makes me more nervous. Why you have up your Irish, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team last year, in which they went winless coming from a dismal album. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group that made it to the CFP this past year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the normal 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 game.
So, my issue is, just how will be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, supposed to get any traction against a swarming shield that is Irish? Especially when he is working with a trainer and an offensive strategy that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to be able to keep pace and Im desperate for your ancestral wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to read in your last sentence youre coming over to the glowing side of sports betting, or youre just being the same wise a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville fully pumped and wasnt just 2-10, however 1-11 ATS final season.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A coach brings a new mindset and with this being a match, Satterfield will sell his team. Louisville does need to hope the Irish will take them for granted and not have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS if dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you said may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/can not recruit like Bama or Clemson, it will take time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville might be better but I would submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record rendered by an equally inept coach such as Petrino.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but at times the people is correct, and also in this situation they certainly are. Until next week when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
