Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I shall deviate to dip our feet and then also leave our college football selections on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will most likely be the first and only time this season we do this, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the best clubs in the nation, plus a legendary football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I supported the Titans. We have been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn for the wreath, as I will follow the squares putting the thick lumber onto a road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of the Monday night affair, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered at a solid -20 throughout the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
I like the Irish but youre currently leaning within this battle onto the Cardinals. Other than the place do you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, and a successful triumph IMO, said a great deal about both the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move to real soccer, so will our records on this one and in which the matches rely.
Recall Louisville used to play against big-name competitions? They more than held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles and are out to alter the culture and win games. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a significant moment for Louisville, a team with the opportunity.
I have read where the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the protection, well, which makes me more nervous. Please do tell why youve got up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much flying into this game as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group coming from a dismal album where they went winless last year. This rebuild is comparable to seeking to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it to the CFP last year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per match over.
So, my issue is, just how will be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, supposed to get some traction against a Irish shield? Particularly when he is working with a new coach and a completely new offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to be able to keep up with this Golden Domers and I am desperate to handicapping expertise that is prodigious and your ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to read in your last sentence you are coming around to the glowing side of sports betting, or you are just being the exact same wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers that are currently making school football selections decide on that. Im the first to realize Louisville was not only 2-10, however, 1-11 ATS and sucked last season.
Just like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A new attitude is brought by A new trainer and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement, with this being a match. Louisville does need to hope never and the Irish will take them for granted have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with all the gold and blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also if dishing out 20 or more specimens, a ATS. That defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even if you dont/cant amuse like Bama or Clemson, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was 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 case, because Louisville might be better compared to last year but Id submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their document rendered by an equally inept trainer like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the public is correct, and also in this case they are. Until when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, let us see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
