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 from our regularly scheduled program of NFL discussion to dip our toes and then leave our school football picks.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this season we do so, 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, plus a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a wager on the Steelers while the Titans were supported by me. We have been swapping wins back and forth so it appears like it is my turn to get the golden wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to the Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered at a solid -20 throughout the board at all the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I enjoy the Irish but youre currently leaning on the Cardinals in this season-opening clash. Aside from the venue, why is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes, Swinger, IMO and a successful win, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us move to football, so will our records with this one and in which the matches rely.
Recall those Thursday night matches Louisville utilized to perform against competitions that are big-name? They held their engineered and own many upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and also the Cardinals were an club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, 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 wonders at Appalachian State. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. The defense which makes me more worried than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Please do tell why youve got up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing flying into this match as the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group coming from a dismal 2-10 record where they went winless in ACC action this past year. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group that made it into the CFP this past year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
My issue is, just how will be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to discharge, supposed to gain some traction against a shield? Particularly when he is working with a trainer and an offensive strategy that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will be able to keep up and Im desperate to your sage wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence youre coming on to the bright side of sport gambling, or youre simply being the same shrewd a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are currently making this is decided on by college football picks. I am the first to realize Louisville wasnt only 2-10, however 1-11 ATS and fully pumped last year.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new attitude is brought by A coach and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement, with this being a game. Louisville does have to trust not and the Irish will take them for granted have much fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using all the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, also when dishing out 20 or more specimens, a mere 7-9-1 ATS. This defense you mentioned may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be better but Id submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document rendered by an trainer like Petrino.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street is square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but at times the general public is right, and also in this situation they definitely are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, let us see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
