Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will deviate from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL debate to dip our toes and leave our college football picks.
It will probably be the first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the top teams in the country, plus a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion 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 back and on so it appears like it is my turn to get the gold wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will accompany the squares laying the heavy lumber on a street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days ahead of the Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 round the board at all the best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but you are leaning in this season-opening clash on the Cardinals. Other than the venue do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, and a convincing triumph IMO, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us move ahead to real soccer, so will our records with this one and where the matches count.
Remember Louisville used to perform against opponents? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were fun games to see and the Cardinals were an golf club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders at Appalachian State and will be out to change the civilization and win matches. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a group which has the chance.
Ive read where the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall since the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense, well, that makes me more worried. Why you have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team last year, where they went winless coming from a dismal album. This rebuild is akin to seeking to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group which made it into the CFP last year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per match.
My query is, how can be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, supposed to get some traction against a shield? Particularly when he is working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a coach?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep pace and Im desperate to the sage wisdom and handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am happy to read in your last sentence you are coming over to the sunny side of sport betting, or youre just being the same shrewd a** you usually are. I will allow the SBR readers that are making school football selections decide on that. I am the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was, but 1-11 ATS final season.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons, but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A coach brings a fresh mindset and this being a national match, Satterfield will sell his team. Louisville does have to trust they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also if dishing out 20 or more specimens, a ATS. That defense you said may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, whenever you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an impressive handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, because Louisville could be better compared to last year but I would submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record rendered by an inept coach such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the people is right, and in this situation they surely are. Until next week once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
