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 and then that I shall detract to dip our feet.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do this, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer featuring one of the best teams in the country, plus a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I supported the Titans. We have been swapping wins back and forth so it appears like its my turn to get the golden wreath, as I will accompany the squares putting the thick lumber onto a road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to the Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered at a solid -20 across the board at all the best online sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning on the Cardinals within this season-opening clash although doug, I enjoy the Irish. Aside from the venue, why is it that you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes, Swinger, and a successful win IMO, said a lot about the management of both the Steelers and Titans. Lets proceed to real football, so will our recordings on this one and where the matches rely.
Remember Louisville utilized to perform against opponents? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an exciting club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (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 games and to alter the civilization. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a huge time for Louisville, a group which has the opportunity.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall as the lead running back. The shield which makes me more worried than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. 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 comfortable in their nest flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team last year, in which they went winless coming from a dismal 2-10 album. This rebuild is akin to taking a hot air balloon and trying to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group that made it into the CFP this past year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per game over.
My query is, how is a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, designed to get some traction against a defense that is Irish? Especially when he is working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up and I am desperate to your sage wisdom and handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am happy to read in your last sentence you are coming around to the glowing side of sports betting, or youre just being the same shrewd a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are currently making school football picks decide on this. Im the first to understand Louisville was, however 1-11 ATS and sucked last season.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons, but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A trainer brings a new attitude and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement with this being a match. Louisville does have to trust the Irish will take them and not have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with all the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because though youve got an impressive handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville could be better than last year but I would submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document left by an equally inept trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the general public is right, and in this situation they definitely are. Until when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
