Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will deviate from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our toes into uncharted waters and also render our college football selections. It will probably be the very first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the best clubs in the country, and a legendary soccer program to boot, Notre Dame. Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. We have been placing wins back and forth so it appears like its my turn to the wreath, as I will accompany the squares putting the thick lumber on a public road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish. After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days before the Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 throughout the board at all of the very best online sportsbooks. I love the Irish but youre currently leaning on the Cardinals. Aside from the venue, why is it that you believe Louisville can hang with the boys out of South Bend? Doug Upstone: Yup IMO and a successful triumph, said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Let us move ahead to real football, where the matches rely and so will our recordings on this one. Recall those Thursday night games Louisville used to perform against competitions? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were fun games and also the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club. But like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza. Scott Satterfield will be out to change the culture and win matches and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This will not happen right away as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the chance to start taking steps. I have read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall because the lead 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 why youve got up your Irish. Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team coming from a dismal 2-10 album in which they went winless in ACC action last year. This rebuild is akin to seeking to turn it and carrying a hot air balloon. While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it to the CFP last year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging 33 points per match over. My query is, how can be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, supposed to get any traction against a Irish shield? Particularly when he is working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a trainer? Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up and Im desperate for the ancestral wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious! Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence youre coming over to the bright side of sports betting, or youre just being the identical wise a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers who are making that is decided on by school football picks. I am the first to understand Louisville sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 last season. Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A fresh mindset is brought by A new coach on creating a statement, and with this being a national game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope not and that the Irish will take them have much fight. Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS, when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you said might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, whenever you dont/cant recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it will take time. Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be better compared to last year but I would submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an trainer like Petrino. I understand that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the general public is right, and in this case they surely are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
