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 leave our school football picks on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and I will deviate to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will probably be the very first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport 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, let us start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a wager about the Steelers while the Titans were supported by me. We have been placing wins forth and back so it appears like it is my turn to the wreath, as I will accompany each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered at a solid -20 round the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
You are currently leaning onto the Cardinals although I enjoy the Irish. Other than the place, why do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, at least and a convincing win IMO, it said a lot about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us proceed to football, where the games count and so will our recordings on this one.
Recall all those Thursday night matches Louisville utilized to play against big-name opponents? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were fun games and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and are out to alter the civilization and win games. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a significant time for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall since the lead running back. The shield that makes me more nervous than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. You have your Irish up, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest flying in the game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team coming from a dismal 2-10 album last year where they went winless in ACC activity. This rebuild is akin to trying to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a group that made it into the CFP last year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points within the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per game over.
My question is, just how is a quarterback like Pass who is slow to release, supposed to gain any traction against a shield? Especially when he is working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a coach?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep up with this Golden Domers and I am desperate for handicapping experience and your sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to read in your last sentence you are coming over to the sunny side of sport betting, or you are simply being the same shrewd a** you are. I will let the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by school football selections. I am the first to realize Louisville sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 final season.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A new mindset is brought by A trainer on making a statement, and this being a national game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly with all the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you said may improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, when you dont/can not amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
I was a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping that was impressive restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be greater but I would submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an coach like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the public is correct, and also in this case they surely are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
