Syracuse Vs. Notre Dame – College Football Week 12 Picks
Syracuse Orange vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish Predictions
The 2018 Shamrock series might be the best one in years. Syracuse is looking to mess Notre Dame’s season with an upset at Yankee Stadium. The Irish playoffs hopes are on the line every time they take on the field. It’s a sweet game to have in a neutral site environment. Mybookie.ag have the Irish as 9-point favorites for this game. It opened at 9.5 points, and it went as high at 10.5, but it seems like it has settled at 9-points. I can see the line going back to ten before the kickoff. 62% of the betting public is taking the points and betting on Syracuse.
Syracuse has won four straight since losing consecutive outings to Clemson and Pittsburgh. The loss against the Tigers was part of their budget despite they always give Clemson a colossal headache. The defeat against Pittsburgh is the one that hurts them the most. Since then, they have taken down North Carolina, NC State, Wake Forest, and Louisville. Each time they scored over 40 points and two over 50.
For Notre Dame to enter the College Football playoffs, they need to finish with an undefeated record. Because they are not inside a conference, the pressure to stay perfect is bigger than the rest of the teams in the country.
The last time they jump on the field they had an easy outing beating Florida State 42-13. Before that, they recorded wins over Northwestern, Navy, and Pittsburgh. They are good wins, but not great by any stretch. Junior QB Ian Book will be ready to be under center once again. He missed the game against the Seminoles last weekend due to an injury. Book is averaging two passing touchdowns per game in the previous four outings. However, he has thrown four interceptions as well.
Any mistakes like interceptions or fumbles could be huge in this game. Syracuse has the type of offense that will take advantage of short field possessions. They score 44.4 (4th) points per game this season while having a balanced attack both passing and running the football. I still think Notre Dame is the best team overall, but this one will be closer than many think. Grab the points. What’s the play? Syracuse +9.
