The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are either 9 12 or 10 point favorites in their contest against the Syracuse Orange Saturday at Yankee Stadium, according to oddsmakers.

The over/under — or “the predicted number of points oddsmakers believe will be scored in the game by both teams combined” — is 61 12 points. That suggests a 36-26 Irish victory.

The OddsShark computer is forecasting a tighter game, with the Irish prevailing 40-32. If that were the final, bettors holding slips for Irish on the moneyline, Syracuse against the spread and the over would cash.

If you are considering betting this game, here are some trends from OddsShark to consider:

  • The total has gone over in six of Notre Dame’s last seven games.
  • The total has gone over in four of Syracuse’s last five games.
  • Syracuse is 8-2 against the spread in its last 10 games on the road, although this is not a true road game. The Orange are 7-3 against the spread in its last 10 games, regardless of location.

Betters at the Westgate Superbook are cooling off on Notre Dame, with their odds dropping for the second consecutive week. The Irish were 6-to-1 darlings during Week 10, then 10-to-1 last week and are now 12-to-1.

Only one team — the LSU Tigersimproved their odds, although their path to the playoff requires losses from the Irish, the Washington State Cougars, the Georgia Bulldogs, Michigan Wolverines and a mutually assured destruction from the Oklahoma Sooners and West Virginia Mountaineers. At 1000-to-1 odds, the Tigers are going to need chaos to suddenly erupt to get their bettors paid.
