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 college football picks on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and also I shall detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season game of NCAA football comprising one of the very best clubs in the nation, and a legendary soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the debate 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 appears like it is my turn to the golden wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will accompany the squares laying the lumber on 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 about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered at a solid -20 across the board at all of the very best online sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but you are currently leaning onto the Cardinals in this clash. Other than the place, why do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup IMO and a convincing triumph, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans management. Lets move to real soccer, in which the matches count and will our recordings with this one.
Remember Louisville used to play against big-name opponents? They held their own and engineered many upsets. These were fun games and the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out to alter the culture and win games and worked wonders. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a major time for Louisville, a group that has the chance.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the direct running back. The defense that makes me more nervous than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. You have up your Irish please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and he has a team coming from a dismal 2-10 album in which they went winless last year. This rebuild is comparable to trying to turn it and carrying a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is facing a team that made it into the CFP last year and possessed only 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 fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
My query is, how is a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, supposed to gain any traction against a Irish defense? Particularly when hes working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a coach?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep pace with the Golden Domers and Im desperate to handicapping experience and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the sunny side of sport betting, or you are simply being the same wise a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers who are making this is decided on by school football picks. I am the first to understand Louisville sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 final year.
Like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons, but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new mindset is brought by A coach and with this being a game, Satterfield will market his staff. Louisville does have to trust never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with all the gold and blue is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS, when dishing out more or 20 specimens. This defense you said may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, when you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be greater than last year but Id submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document rendered by an coach like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but at times the people is right, and in this instance they surely are. Until when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
