Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I shall deviate to dip our toes into uncharted waters and render our college football picks. It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the very best teams in the nation, and a legendary soccer program to boot, Notre Dame. Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it appears like it is my turn to the gold wreath, as I will accompany the squares putting the thick lumber onto a public street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish. After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to the Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered at a solid -20 throughout the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks. Doug, I like the Irish but you are currently leaning within this season-opening clash onto the Cardinals. Besides the place do you think Louisville can hang with the boys? Doug Upstone: Yup a convincing win and IMO, it said a great deal about the management of both the Steelers and Titans. Lets proceed to real football, where the games count and so will our recordings on this one. Recall those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to perform against competitions that are big-name? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club. But like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza. Scott Satterfield will be out to alter the civilization and win matches and worked miracles in Appalachian State. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a group which has the chance. I have read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the defense that makes me more worried. Please do tell youve got up your Irish. Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team coming from a dismal 2-10 album this past year in which they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to attempting to turn it and taking a hot air balloon. While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group which 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 regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging 33 points per game over. So, my issue is, just how is a quarterback like Pass who is slow to discharge, supposed to gain some traction against a swarming Irish shield? Especially when hes working with a new coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new? Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up and Im desperate to handicapping experience and your ancestral wisdom! Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence youre coming over to the bright side of sports betting, or youre just being the identical shrewd a** you are. I will allow the SBR readers that are making school football picks decide on that. Im the first to understand Louisville completely sucked and was, however 1-11 ATS last season. Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A fresh attitude is brought by A new coach and his team will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement, with this being a federal match. Louisville does need to trust never and that the Irish will take them have much fight. Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS if dishing out more or 20 specimens. This defense you mentioned may improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, if you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take time. I was being a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville could be better but Id submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their document left by an coach like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks. I know that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the public is right, and in this situation they certainly are. Until when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
