Point/Counterpoint: Notre Dame vs Louisville – Free NCAAF Betting Picks
Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I will detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our feet into uncharted waters and then leave our college football selections.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this year we do this, as the previous week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer featuring one of the very best teams in the country, plus a mythical 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 with a bet on the Steelers while I supported the Titans. We have been placing wins forth and back so it looks like its my turn for the gold wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will follow all the squares putting the thick lumber onto a public road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days ahead of the Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered in a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre leaning on the Cardinals. Aside from the venue is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, at least and a convincing win IMO, said a lot about both the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets move ahead to real football, in which the games count and will our records with this one.
Recall those Thursday night matches Louisville used to perform against opponents that are big-name? They more than held their engineered and own many upsets. These were fun games and the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles and are out win matches and to alter the civilization. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a huge moment for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity to start taking actions.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall since the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the protection which makes me more nervous. Why you have your Irish up, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and hes got a team coming off of a dismal album this past year in which they went winless in ACC activity. This rebuild is akin to taking a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group which made it into the CFP this past year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
My query is, just how will be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, designed to obtain some traction against a Irish defense? Particularly when hes working with an offensive scheme and a new coach?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate for prodigious handicapping experience and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the glowing side of sports betting, or youre simply being the identical wise a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are making school football selections decide on that. Im the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and completely sucked last season.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A coach brings a fresh mindset and this being a game, Satterfield can sell his new staff on making a statement. Louisville does have to trust not and they will not be taken by that the Irish for granted have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out 20 or more specimens. This defense you said might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, when you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though you have an impressive handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, because Louisville might be better compared to last season but I would submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document left by an awkward coach like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the public is right, and in this case they really are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week next week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
