The Syracuse vs. Notre Dame betting line had the Fighting Irish as a -10 favorite.


This is one of the better games this weekend with number 3-ranked Notre Dame undefeated and the Orange ranked 12 in the nation with just two losses. looked at Notre Dame's chances of making it into the playoffs.

Toughest remaining game: Nov. 24 at USC (71.4 percent)
Chance to make playoff: 77.5 percent
Chance to win it all: 6.4 percent
Best-case scenario: Finish undefeated. If the Irish win their final two games, they should be a lock in the top four.

Worst-case scenario: Lose a game and have everyone else win out. According to Playoff Predictor, both Michigan and Ohio State would get in over 11-1 Notre Dame if either of them won the Big Ten. A 12-1 Big Ten champion Michigan has a 91 percent chance to get into the playoff, compared to a 57 percent chance for an 11-1 Notre Dame. Should the Buckeyes win the Big Ten, they would have a 79 percent chance to finish in the top four, compared to 54 percent for one-loss Notre Dame in this situation. If Notre Dame DOES lose, it should hope the Big 12 champion has two losses -- and that the Irish are still ranked ahead of Washington State.
