Notre Dame Betting Outlook

After back to back losses against Ohio State and Marshall to start the year, the Irish rattled of wins in 7 of their last 8 games to be pushing for a top 10 spot in the rankings. The Irish are decently balanced with a top 40 scoring offense and a top 20 scoring defense.

Drew Pyne has done a solid job leading this team under center, but what’s really interesting is just how much they run the ball. The Irish are rushing the 12th most in the country at nearly 61% of their offensive plays for 4.6 Yards/Rush and 191.2 Rush Yards/Game. Audric Estime and Logan Diggs have split carries this season but Estime getting the majority of the goal line carries with 11 touchdowns to 2. Michael Mayer could be the countries best tight end and is by far the best target on this Irish team.

Defensively, JD Bertrand and Benjamin Morrison lead the team in Tackles and Interceptions respectively for a defense that has found a groove over recently holding strong in ranked wins over Syracuse and Clemson and a shutout of Boston College last week. The strength of this defense comes against defending the pass. They are top 20 in both Opp Completion % and Opp Pass Yards/ Game, and top 10 in Sack %. Should they win the turnover battle on Saturday, they should be in a great spot to win this game.

USC Betting Outlook

Lincoln Riley has immediately brought this program back to one of the most exciting in the country in one short year. The Trojans are a juggernaut offensively, scoring the 3rd most points per game, the 2nd most Yards/Game at over 513, and the best 3D Conversion % in the country and that doesn’t happen by accident.

Caleb Williams is a legitimate Heisman candidate and has been surrounded by great weapons. With no Travis Dye, Austin Jones ran all over UCLA, and should be able to do it again on Saturday. Jordan Addison has built on another great season and the passing offense is 7th best in the country in yards per game. While they aren’t throwing the ball a ton, they are top 15 in Yards/Rush.

Defensively there is some to be desired for the Trojans. They give up 26.3 Points/Game and 405.0 Opp Yards/Game.  This unit is giving up 4.6 yards/rush and 7.4 yards/pass. In this game against Notre Dame, who is running the ball 60% of the time, should have some success but might not go to plan if they aren’t able to open it up and not have USC stack the box.

Pick And Prediction

This line is a little fishy to me. In a prime let down spot for USC after a huge emotional win, I think this should have been over a touchdown, so I’m going to stay away from a side and a total and dive into some props. USC shouldn’t be able to throw so easily and Austin Jones can build on another big game, while I think the Irish will be playing from behind and will need to throw a little more, and to go to his most reliable target.

Pick: Austin Jones Over 81.5 Rushing Yards & Michael Mayer Over 54.5 Receiving Yards
