The BetUS Preview for Notre Dame vs. Clemson

BetUS host Gary Segars, and expert handicappers Kyle Hunter and Parker Fleming preview the College Football Week 10 game between Notre Dame and Clemson. They'll go over the best value college football odds available and betting trends and share their College Football expert predictions. 

"They've got four losses before November for the first time since 2010," Segars noted. 

Kyle Hunter points out the similarities between these two teams.

"They're both strong in the trenches.  They both have weaknesses at wide receiver.  But the big difference stops at Sam Hartman is way better than Cade Klubnik at this point. 

"I know he doesn't have great wide receivers around him.  The other thing is the Clemson run attack, which we thought would be really good, is averaging just 3.7 yards per carry.  I don't think the offensive line is playing up to par for Clemson.

"The question when I handicap this game though is Where is Clemson's mind at?  I have a hard time handicapping games like this."

What Do the Numbers Tell Us?

92% of those betting the spread of this game were backing Notre Dame at -3.5 and 82% were backing the Irish at -3.  You'll notice this number is moving in the wrong direction.  If we see the number drop to -2.5, this could be an indication the oddsmakers feel strongly that Clemson can cover here.

The Tigers are still ranked at No. 25 at Sagarin but Notre Dame is No. 10 and viewed as far more superior in this matchup.  This is demonstrated by the 7.72 number we're getting.  The indication is there is around a 5-point underlay and underlays in this range (3/3.5/4) tend to be good for the favorite.  This just seems too easy and it's odd we don't see the number moving more towards 3.5 and 4.
