Point/Counterpoint: Notre Dame vs Louisville – Free NCAAF Betting Picks
Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will detract to dip our toes and then render our college football selections on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will most likely be the first and only time this season we do so, as the previous week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the top clubs in the country, and a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were backed by me. We have been placing wins forth and back so it looks like it is my turn to get the wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will follow the squares laying the heavy lumber onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days ahead of 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 it is now offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever of the best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I enjoy the Irish but youre leaning onto the Cardinals. Other than the venue is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, and a convincing win IMO, it said a lot about the Steelers and Titans management. Lets move ahead to real football, so will our recordings on this one and where the games rely.
Remember Louisville used to perform against big-name opponents? They more than held their own and engineered many upsets. These were fun games and also the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders at Appalachian State and are out to change the culture and win matches. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. Nonethelessthis is a huge moment for Louisville, a team that has the opportunity to start taking steps in the perfect direction.
Ive read where the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and 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 for season wins. You have your Irish up, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and he has a group coming off of a dismal 2-10 album where they went winless in ACC action this past year. This rebuild is comparable to seeking to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team that 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 over the normal season and heading a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per match over.
My query is, just how can be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to discharge, supposed to get some traction against a shield? Especially when hes working with a new coach and an entirely new offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep pace with this Golden Domers and I am desperate for your ancestral wisdom and prodigious handicapping experience!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to read in your last sentence you are coming on to the sunny side of sport betting, or youre simply being the exact wise a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers that are currently making that is decided on by school football selections. I am the first to understand Louisville completely sucked and was not just 2-10, however, 1-11 ATS final season.
But that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons. A new coach brings a fresh attitude and this being a federal match, Satterfield will market his staff on building a statement. Louisville does have to trust they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and never have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with the gold and blue is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also when dishing out 20 or more digits, a mere 7-9-1 ATS. This defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because though you have an impressive handicapping restart , you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville could be greater than last year but Id submit that they are educated with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their own deplorable record rendered by an equally awkward coach like Petrino.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the road is square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the public is right, and in this case they certainly are. Until next week once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
