Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football picks on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then also that I will detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our feet. It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the top teams in the country, plus a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame. Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet about the Steelers while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been placing wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn to the wreath, as I will follow all the squares laying the lumber onto a street favorite and endorse the Irish. After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days before the Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently available at a solid -20 around the board at all the best internet sportsbooks. You are currently leaning onto the Cardinals although doug, I love the Irish. Aside from the place is it that you believe Louisville can hang with the boys? Doug Upstone: Yup a win and at least IMO, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans management. Lets move ahead to soccer, in which the games rely and so will our records on this one. Remember those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to perform against big-name competitions? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games to see and also the Cardinals were an club. But like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza. Scott Satterfield worked miracles and will be out to change the civilization and win games. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a major time for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity. Ive read where the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense that makes me more worried. You have up your Irish, please do tell. Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying in this match since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and hes got a group this past year, where they went winless coming off of a dismal record. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it. While this may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group which made it into the CFP this past year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per game. My question is, how can be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to discharge, designed to gain some traction against a swarming Irish defense? Especially when hes working with a trainer and a completely new offensive strategy? Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace and Im desperate for the ancestral wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious! Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am happy to see in your last sentence youre coming around to the bright side of sports gambling, or youre simply being the exact same shrewd a** you usually are. Ill let the SBR readers that are making this is decided on by college football picks. I am the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and fully pumped final year. Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A new coach brings a fresh attitude on building a statement, and this being a match, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope they will not be taken by the Irish and not have much fight. Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with all the gold and blue is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS when dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, when you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it is going to take time. Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be better compared to last year but I would submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record rendered by an trainer like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks. I know that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the people is correct, and in this case they definitely are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
