Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football selections and then also I will detract to dip our feet.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the top teams in the country, and a mythical football 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 with a bet about the Steelers while I endorsed the Titans. We have been placing wins on and back so it looks like its my turn to the golden wreath, as I will follow each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days prior to the Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered at a solid -20 round the board at all of the best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but youre currently leaning within this season-opening battle on the Cardinals. Other than the place do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, IMO and at least a successful triumph, it said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to football, in which the games rely and will our recordings with this one.
Remember Louisville utilized to perform against competitions that are big-name? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles in Appalachian State and are out to change the culture and win games. This will not happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a big time for Louisville, a group which has the opportunity to begin taking actions in the ideal direction.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall since the direct running back. The protection, well, that makes me more worried than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. You have up your Irish, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest, flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and hes got a group this past year, in which they went winless coming from a dismal album. This rebuild is comparable to taking a hot air balloon and trying to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team 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 over the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
So, my question is, just how can be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, designed to obtain some traction against a defense that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with a new coach and an offensive scheme?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep up and Im desperate to the brand new wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence youre coming on to the glowing side of sport gambling, or you are simply being the identical shrewd a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by college football selections. I am the first to understand Louisville fully pumped and was not just 2-10, however 1-11 ATS last season.
But that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons. A new attitude is brought by A new coach on creating a statement, and this being a match, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and not have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS, if dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you said might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even if you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, because Louisville might be greater but I would submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an equally awkward trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street is square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the people is right, and also in this situation they definitely are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
