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 render our college football picks and that I will detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our feet.
It will probably be the very first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the greatest clubs in the country, and a legendary football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while I supported the Titans. Weve been placing wins on and back so it looks like its my turn for the gold wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will follow the squares putting the thick lumber onto a public street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days before this Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered in a solid -20 round the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but you are leaning to the Cardinals. Besides the venue do you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes and a win IMO, said a great deal about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Let us move ahead to soccer, will our recordings on this one and in which the matches count.
Remember those Thursday night matches Louisville used to play against competitions? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games to see and also the Cardinals were an golf club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win games and to alter the culture and worked miracles at Appalachian State. This will not happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. Nonetheless, this is a moment for Louisville, a team that has the chance.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall because the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense, well, which makes me more nervous. Why you have up your Irish, 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 match. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team last year, where they went winless in ACC action coming off of a dismal 2-10 record. This rebuild is akin to seeking to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it into the CFP this past 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 offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging 33 points per game over.
My question is, just how can be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, designed to get some traction against a shield? Especially when he is working with an offensive strategy and a trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep up and I am desperate for the ancestral wisdom and handicapping expertise that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to read in your last sentence you are coming around to the glowing side of sport betting, or you are just being the exact wise a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are making school football selections decide on that. Im the first to realize Louisville fully pumped and wasnt just 2-10, but 1-11 ATS final season.
Just like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons However, coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A new coach brings a new attitude and this being a match, Satterfield will market his staff on making a statement. Louisville does have to hope the Irish will take them for granted and never have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS, when dishing out 20 or more specimens. This defense you said might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even if you dont/can not recruit like Bama or Clemson, it is going to take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville could be greater compared to last year but Id submit that they are trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record rendered by an trainer like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the general public is correct, and in this case they surely are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
