USC vs. Notre Dame Pick

Notre Dame Team Total Over 29.5 (-110) Bet $100 to collect $190 DraftKings has the best odds, click here to bet

We're at DraftKings here but if you have to play at FanDuel, it's cool. They have 29.5 (-115) so it's not like there's a drastic difference. I wish we had some alt lines to look through but these are all we have. It should be noted that if you can't play at either FanDuel or DraftKings but can play at BetMGM, then the both teams to score 30+ (+170) may be the move for you. The only difference is I would play that as a YOLO and not a regular move. But you do you. It's your life. Get some if you want it.

USC vs. Notre Dame Prediction

At the end of the day, this is a great number for the team we're backing and the opponent they're playing. I can feel it in my plums. It's just a superior move to all other moves on the board tonight. Plus it's on ABC during prime time so the fun factor is through the roof. Now the haters are going to say that Drew Pyne's Passing Yards Over 192.5 (-115) is an absolute lock and we should be taking that. They could be right. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then. Happens every day. After all, 193 passing yards is pretty much nothing in college football these days. Still, I'm staying with the Team Total.

The thing about this one is, I know Notre Dame is just going to try to run the ball tonight which kills the clock but it's been working. They've scored at least 35 points in each of their last five games. People are going to say they've embarrassed themselves in big spots over the last 20 years (they have) but this time feels different. This isn't Alabama. This is USC. They've given up at least 35 points in four of their last five games. The time they didn't was against Colorado so that game doesn't even count. The Buffaloes still hung 17 which is like a 40-burger for real teams like Notre Dame.

The reason I think we can trust the Fighting Irish with our cash is that so far this season, USC has given up 4.6 yards per rush attempt. That ranks 99th in the country. Just last week, UCLA averaged 5.5 yards per attempt. Keep in mind, Notre Dame had two different 100-yard rushers against Clemson and the Tigers rank 19th in the country in opponent yards per rush attempt. What we have working in our favor is the fact that USC will likely score on the Notre Dame defense themselves which means no sitting on the ball for the Irish. This feels like a 38-31 type of game but I have no idea who is going to win. We could be looking at the greatest bet of all time here people.
