Why Bet on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish?

HC Marcus Freeman used to coach the Fighting Irish’s defense. Freeman takes pride in the unit and it shows. Notre Dame’s D allows 20.3 points per game from 316.8 total yards.

The Irish have 9 takeaways on the season. Isaiah Foskey has created havoc in 2022 with 9 sacks. Benjamin Morrison has 5 picks.

Why Bet on the Oregon State Beavers?

The Trojans boast one of the top offenses in the nation. Lincoln Riley’s offense averages 513 yards per game, ranking second in the nation. The Trojans rank third in points per game at 42.9.

The system flatters Heisman contender Caleb Williams. Caleb has thrown for 3,480 yards and 33 TDs. USC’s QB has tossed just 3 interceptions. Williams averages 330.8 yards per game. The Trojans rush for 182.2 each contest.

If USC has a flaw, it has to be their defense. The Trojans don’t come close to posting the stats’ that Notre Dame’s D posts. USC allows 26.3 points per game from 405 total yards.

What’s really disturbing if you’re a Trojans fan is that the defense gives up 147.2 rushing yards on average each game. One great thing about USC’s D is that it has 18 takeaways on the season, ranking first in the nation.

Notre Dame vs. USC Expert Betting Predictions

This game should be a contrast in styles. USC is an offensive juggernaut while the Fighting Irish play excellent defense. Not only that, but the Irish are on fire. Notre Dame has won 4 straight. The most impressive victory among the 4 was beating Clemson 35-14.

But Clemson’s offense can’t touch USC’s. The Trojans run and pass the ball equally well. Notre Dame’s offense will struggle to keep up, which is why even though the Fighting Irish will make this close for a while, Williams leads the Trojans to an eventual straight up win and cover.
