Utah vs. Notre Dame Spread

The Utah vs. Notre Dame spread was at Utes -5 as the away favorite.  BetUS.com was one of the few online sportsbooks offering Utah at this price while most of their competitors had the favorites at 5.5.  Amazingly, more than 95 percent of the public betting on this game was going towards the Utes.  Therefore the 5-point line at BetUS.com has great value.

The Utes (now ranked number 14) haven't lost consecutive games since 2007 and they are coming off of one last week.

The Irish are coming off two straight losses and a bye and need to win two of their final three games to be bowl-eligible. The Fighting Irish are 55-11-1 against opponents making their first trip to Notre Dame Stadium and have won 28 of 35 after an off week since 1984.

Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said of his next opponent: "We move on to Notre Dame. This is the first time that Utah has played Notre Dame and it should be a great experience," he said. "They did have a bye last week and are fighting for a bowl game, and we are fighting to get this thing turned around.

"We need to bounce back and put the loss behind us and resume our schedule. We still have a chance to have an excellent season."

Let’s now review some important betting trends for Utah vs. Notre Dame.

The Utes are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a losing home record. The Fighting Irish are 5-16 ATS in their last 21 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.  Utah is 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite. The Fighting Irish are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a home underdog of 3.5-10.0.  Utah’s edge when it comes to this stat is diminished a bit since they are 7-20 Against The Spread as a favorite of 3.5 to 10.  (edge:  Utah)

The Utes are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games.  The Fighting Irish are 5-11-2 ATS in their last 18 non-conference games. (edge: Utah)
