Consensus cappers were split on the Notre Dame-Duke game Saturday.  But one in particular has been performing quite well this difficult college football season.  Find out who he's on below.

Action, we should note, was relatively balanced the hours leading up to this 7:30 pm ET game.

Duke hosts Notre Dame as a +5.5 home dog.  Some caution here.  As an away favorite, the Fighting Irish are 15-1 Straight Up since 2018.  Duke is 4-9 SU as a home underdog over that time.  The Irish moneyline here is just -210.

Notre Dame comes into this game with a handicap having lost one game already this season.  That was last week's near win against Ohio State, a game the Irish lost by just three points at home.  They were dominant in three previous games including one versus a decent enough NC State.

Duke has been extremely dominant and it would be easy to write that off as lack of competition if not for the fact that they beat Clemson handily in Week 1.  Granted, this isn't the same Tigers team of years past.

So far this difficult season, SWJ Sports has been going pretty strong with a 7-2-1 record in college football.  SWJ Sports is on Duke +5.5 for this game.
