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 leave our school football picks on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and that I shall detract to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this season we do this, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the greatest teams in the nation, and a mythical soccer program to boot, 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. Weve been swapping wins back and forth so it appears like its my turn to the golden wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will accompany the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to this Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered at a solid -20 throughout the board at all the best online sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but youre leaning in this battle to the Cardinals. Other than the venue is it that you believe Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes at least and a successful win IMO, it said a great deal about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Let us move to real soccer, in which the matches rely and so will our records with this one.
Recall all those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to perform against competitions? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles and will be out to alter the culture and win matches. This will not happen immediately as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a major moment for Louisville, a team which has the chance to start taking steps.
I have 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 direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense, well, that makes me more worried. Why you have up your Irish please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and hes got a team last year, in which they went winless coming from a dismal 2-10 album. This rebuild is comparable to attempting to turn it and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group which made it into the CFP last year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging 33 points per game over.
My query is, how will be a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, supposed to get some traction against a shield that is Irish? Especially when he is working with a new trainer and an offensive scheme?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep pace and Im desperate to the sage wisdom and handicapping expertise that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to read in your last sentence you are coming over to the sunny side of sport betting, or you are simply being the same wise a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by school football selections. Im the first to realize Louisville wasnt only 2-10, but 1-11 ATS and fully pumped last season.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A fresh attitude is brought by A new coach on creating a statement and this being a federal game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to hope not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS if dishing out more or 20 digits. That defense you said may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, if you dont/cant recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take some time.
I was a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, because Louisville might be better but I would submit that they are trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record rendered by an awkward trainer like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly three touchdowns on the highway is square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the people is right, and also in this instance they are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
