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 render our college football picks and that I shall deviate from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL debate to dip our feet.
It will most likely be the first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the best teams in the country, and a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while I endorsed the Titans. We have been swapping wins back and on so it looks like its my turn to get the golden wreath, as I will follow the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered at a solid -20 throughout the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I enjoy the Irish but youre currently leaning onto the Cardinals. Apart from the venue is it that you think Louisville can hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, a win and IMO, said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Lets proceed to soccer, where the games count and so will our records with this one.
Recall Louisville used to perform against big-name competitions? They more than held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an exciting club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and will be out to alter the civilization and win games. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. Yet this is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the chance.
Ive read where the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall because the direct running back. The defense that makes me more worried than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Please do tell you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group coming from a dismal album in which they went winless last year. This rebuild is comparable to attempting to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually occur, the problem is that Louisville is facing a group that made it into the CFP last year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
So, my query is, how is a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, supposed to obtain some traction against a Irish defense? Especially when he is working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a trainer?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep pace with this Golden Domers and Im desperate for your brand new wisdom and handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to read in your last sentence you are coming over to the glowing side of sports gambling, or youre just being the exact identical shrewd a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are currently making this is decided on by college football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville wasnt just 2-10, however, 1-11 ATS and completely sucked final year.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new attitude is brought by A trainer and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement, this being a match. Louisville does need to trust the Irish will take them and never have a lot of fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS if dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you said might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even if you dont/can not recruit like Bama or Clemson, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because although you have an impressive handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, because Louisville might be greater but Id submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their document rendered by an trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the general public is right, and also in this instance they are. Until next week when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
