Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our college football selections on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then that I shall deviate from our regularly scheduled program of NFL discussion to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the first and only time this season we do so, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the greatest clubs in the nation, and a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. We have been placing wins back and on so it appears like its my turn to get the wreath, as I will follow each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days prior to the Monday night affair, 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 across the board at all of the best online sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but youre leaning within this season-opening clash on the Cardinals. Aside from the venue do you think Louisville can hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup a win and IMO, it said a lot about both the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move ahead to football, so will our recordings on this one and where the matches count.
Recall all those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to perform against big-name opponents? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and also the Cardinals were an golf club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles at Appalachian State and are out win games and to change the civilization. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. Nonetheless, this is a huge time for Louisville, a team which has the chance to start taking steps in the ideal direction.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall since the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the shield that makes me more worried. Please do tell youve got up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying in this match since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a group coming off of a dismal album last year, where they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it into the CFP this past year and possessed 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 until they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per game over.
My issue is, how is a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, designed to get any traction against a shield? Especially when he is working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a new coach?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep up with this Golden Domers and I am desperate for your brand new wisdom and prodigious handicapping experience!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming on to the sunny side of sport gambling, or youre simply being the exact wise a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers who are currently making this is decided on by school football selections. I am the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 final season.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A trainer brings a new mindset on making a statement, and this being a national game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to hope they will not be taken by the Irish and never have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS if dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you said might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, when you dont/cant recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville might be better compared to last year but I would submit that they are trained with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record left by an coach such as Petrino.
I understand that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but at times the general public is correct, 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 prepared to rumble in Louisville.
