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 render our college football picks on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the greatest clubs in the nation, plus a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while I backed the Titans. Weve been placing wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn to get the gold wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days ahead of this Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point about the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 throughout the board at all the best internet sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but youre leaning to the Cardinals within this season-opening battle. Other than the place do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, at least and a convincing win IMO, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets move to real football, where the matches rely and so will our records on this one.
Remember Louisville used to perform against opponents? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles and are out win matches and to alter the culture. This will not happen immediately as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a team which has 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 I enjoy Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the defense that makes me more nervous. Please do tell why youve got your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying in this match since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group this past year, at which they went winless in ACC action coming off of a dismal 2-10 record. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team which made it into the CFP this past year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging over 33 points per match.
My issue is, how is a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, designed to get some traction against a swarming defense that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with a new trainer and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville will be able to keep pace and Im desperate to prodigious handicapping expertise and your brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the glowing side of sport betting, or you are simply being the exact wise a** you are. I will let the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by school football selections. Im the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and sucked last season.
Just like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A new attitude is brought by A new trainer and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement this being a match. Louisville does have to trust they will not be taken by the Irish and not have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, and when dishing out 20 or more specimens, a mere 7-9-1 ATS. That defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, when you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping that was impressive resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be better than last year but I would submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their document rendered by an equally inept coach such as Petrino.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the public is right, and in this instance they really are. Until when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
