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 shall detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL discussion to dip our feet and then also render our school football picks on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this season we do so, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the greatest teams in the country, plus a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I supported the Titans. Weve been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn to get the gold wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow all the squares putting the thick lumber onto a public road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered at a solid -20 across the board at all the very best internet sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning on the Cardinals although I enjoy the Irish. Aside from the place, why is it that you believe Louisville can hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, a convincing triumph and at least IMO, it said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move to real soccer, where the matches count and so will our recordings on this one.
Remember Louisville used to play against big-name competitions? They more than held their engineered and own several upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and also the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
However, such as the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out win matches and to change the culture and worked wonders. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down in theVille. Nonetheless, this is a time for Louisville, a group which has the chance.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall because the lead running back. The defense that makes me more nervous than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Please do tell why youve got your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and he has a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 album last year, where they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team which made it to the CFP last year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense has been clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per game over.
My issue is, just how can be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to discharge, supposed to gain any traction against a shield? Especially when hes working with a coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep pace with this Golden Domers and I am desperate for the sage wisdom and handicapping expertise that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the glowing side of sports gambling, or you are just being the identical wise a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are currently making that is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville wasnt only 2-10, but 1-11 ATS and sucked last year.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A fresh attitude is brought by A new coach and this being a national match, Satterfield will sell his staff. Louisville does need to trust they will not be taken by that the Irish for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and if dishing out 20 or more specimens, a mere 7-9-1 ATS. This defense you said may improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, whenever you dont/cant amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because although you have an impressive handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville might be better compared to last year but I would submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document rendered by an equally awkward coach like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the people is correct, and in this case they definitely are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
