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 into uncharted waters and also render our college football selections on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this season we do so, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the top clubs in the nation, and a legendary soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. We have been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like it is my turn to get the wreath, as I will follow the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days before this Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered at a solid -20 throughout the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but you are currently leaning within this clash to the Cardinals. Aside from the place do you think Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, a successful triumph and at least IMO, said a lot about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Let us move ahead to real football, so will our records on this one and where the matches count.
Remember those Thursday night matches Louisville used to play against big-name competitions? They held their own and engineered many upsets. These were fun games and the Cardinals were an exciting club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out to alter the civilization and win games and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a group which has the opportunity to start taking steps.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the shield, well, that makes me more worried. Why you have your Irish up please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying in this match since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a group coming from a dismal 2-10 record this past year in which they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group that made it to the CFP last year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging 33 points per game over.
My query is, just how is a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, designed to get any traction against a shield? Particularly when he is working with a new coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will be able to keep up with this Golden Domers and I am desperate for prodigious handicapping expertise and your ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence youre coming on to the glowing side of sport betting, or you are just being the same shrewd a** you are. I will let the SBR readers who are making school football selections decide on this. Im the first to realize Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 final season.
But that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons. A new coach brings a new attitude and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement, this being a federal game. Louisville does need to hope the Irish will take them and never have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also when dishing out 20 or more specimens, a mere 7-9-1 ATS. That defense you said may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/can not recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping that was impressive resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville might be better compared to last year but Id submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an coach such as Petrino.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but at times the public is right, and in this situation they certainly are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
