Notre Dame Football: Week 2 Betting Odds for Georgia, Other Irish Opponents

What the professional oddsmakers are saying about the Irish’s chances against the Georgia Bulldogs

The injury of Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Jacob Eason is impacting the betting lines for Saturday’s game against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

The Irish opened as four-point favorites on Sunday, but the line was temporarily suspended while oddsmakers awaited news of Eason’s return.

Today, Eason was ruled out for Saturday’s game with a sprained ligament in his left knee. Sportsbooks subsequently moved the line to make Notre Dame a 6.5 point favorite, with 5 Dimes offering a slightly better 6 point spread. The over/under, which opened at 51.5, is up to 55. (An “over” bet would pay if the total of the two teams’ scores exceeds 55.)

Jake Fromm, a true freshman, will start for the Bulldogs in their first trip north of the Mason-Dixon line since taking on the Michigan Wolverines...52 years ago!

Here are the lines for the other 2017 Notre Dame opponents. All of them are playing at home, except for Wake Forest and Stanford — who are playing other future Notre Dame opponents this week.
