College Football Betting Preview: Temple Owls at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Temple at Notre Dame
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - NBC
CRIS Opener: Notre Dame -15 O/U 55.5
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -18.5 O/U 54.5
Recommendation: Temple

We have seen heavy Notre Dame support in the betting markets with this line up from the opener of -11 to -18/-18.5 at most sportsbooks. There is no doubt Temple faces its share of challenges following last season’s fantastic output in which the Owls were the top pointspread team in the nation and won the AAC. Matt Rhule departed for Baylor and as a result, the Owls have a new head coach in Geoff Collins who was the former DC at Florida. Temple will be installing new systems and schemes on both sides of the football and they must replace their former starting quarterback Phillip Walker. Walker was erratic more times than not so his departure isn’t significant. But there is uncertainty at the position heading into the opener (a starter has yet to be named) although it appears that sophomore Logan Marchi has the inside track at the job. Whoever starts will not be devoid of pieces around him as Temple returns three Read more

College Football Handicapping: With new OC, Notre Dame seeks faster tempo

08.02.2017     10:47 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Not a lot went right for Notre Dame last season. The Irish were probably better than their 4-8 record (4 losses by a field goal or less) but there was rarely a game where both the offense and defense showed up. Head coach Brian Kelly, who is obviously on the hot seat, brought in offensive coordinator Chip Long to spark a unit that is only two years removed from averaging over 7 yards per play. Long served as Memphis' OC last season. Despite losing head coach Justin Fuentes and quarterback Paxton Lynch, the offense actually average slightly more yards per play under Long. News out of camp indicates that Notre Dame will look to play at a much faster tempo this season.


“We have the potential to score in the first two plays,” Adams said Tuesday following Notre Dame’s first practice of the season at Culver Academies. “Obviously as an offense, that’s what you want, to score as fast as you can. We’re conditioned to play fast.”

“We’ll

NCAA Tournament Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Princeton Tigers vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Princeton vs. Notre Dame -6.5 O/U 135
Recommendation: Notre Dame


Pointspreads tend to be very accurate by this time of the year.  Both the oddsmakers and the broader betting markets have a full seasons worth of data to punch into their computers.  The end result is that the numbers -- both sides and total -- are consistently right where they are supposed to be.

So when bettors are looking for an edge at this time of the year, they’re going to have to dig for information that is not factored into the numbers.  Given the full season results and stats for Princeton and Notre Dame, this pointspread is as accurate as it gets.  But when it comes to key tidbits of info?  Well, that’s where we can find an edge.

Princeton was forced to leave New Jersey on Monday due to the East Coast blizzard; more than 24 hours ahead of schedule.  That wouldn’t necessarily be a big deal, except for the fact that the Tigers played in the first ever Ivy League Championship Game on Sunday, creating a mad scramble for a team from a conference that has never had a conference tourney Read more

College Football Gambling: Notre Dame parts ways with defensive coordinator

09.27.2016     08:20 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In keeping with the "house cleaning" theme for today, Notre Dame announced the firing of defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder following Saturday's 38-35 loss to Duke. With a backup quarterback, the Blue Devils waltzed into South Bend and nearly 500 yards. This is the same team that scored a combined 27 points in losses to Wake Forest and Northwestern. The remainder of the Irish's schedule looks daunting from a defensive perspective. This week's foe, Syracuse, is playing at a pace Notre Dame has shown no ability to contain. North Carolina State and Miami haven't played anyone but are putting up points in bunches. Navy and Army aren't ideal for a stop unit that struggles to tackle. And Virginia Tech's up-tempo offense is starting to take hold with 103 points the last two weeks against Boston College and East Carolina.


“When you guys ask me those questions certainly that's not the time or place to get into debates about your coaching staff. I make those decisions clearly

College Football Betting Preview: Duke Blue Devils at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Duke at Notre Dame
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame -21.5 O/U 58
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -20.5 O/U 60.5
Recommendation: Under

For the second time in three games, Notre Dame's defense was gashed for big yards and big points. Texas rolled up 50 on the Irish in Week 1 and then Michigan State hung 36 and 6.42 yards per play in last week's 36-28 upset win. Needless to say, most of the media coverage this week has centered around Notre Dame's ongoing defensive struggles that date back to last year. Against their last four power conference opponents (Stanford, Ohio State, Texas, and Michigan State), the Irish have allowed 42 ppg. Last year, the excuse was injuries and lack of depth. This year, it's the secondary with multiple key players out. According to Brian Kelly, the main problem is simply not performing up to snuff.

But the situation this week is far more favorable as Duke comes to town. The Blue Devils managed only 27 points in back-to-back losses to Wake Forest and Northwestern. Freshman quarterback Daniel Jones has been serviceable with 61% completions but he's not Read more

College Football Handicapping: Notre Dame secondary is now ultra-thin

09.14.2016     09:51 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Keep an eye on Notre Dame's secondary with a handful of key starters injured or suspended. The Irish allowed 280 yards on 10.4 yards per attempt in Week 1's 50-47 loss to Texas. The schedule, though, looks pretty quarterback friendly moving forward. Their next two opponents, Michigan State and Duke, are breaking in new signal callers. The same holds true for NC State, Stanford, Virginia Tech, and USC. There's also not much to worry about with back-to-back games against Navy and Army in November. The only experienced and established passing quarterback Notre Dame will face will be Miami's Brad Kaaya. A little easier than last season after facing the likes of Clemson's Deshaun Watson, USC's Cody Kessler, Stanford's Kevin Hogan, and Ohio State's J.T. Barrett.

College Basketball Free Betting Pick: Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. North Carolina Tar Heels

Notre Dame vs. North Carolina -7 O/U 158.5
Recommendation: Over


Roy Williams always wants his team to play fast, and in neutral court settings, Williams has been an Over machine: 20-7 to the Over in the Tar Heels last 27 neutral site games.  North Carolina really pushed the pace yesterday against Pitt, hanging 88 points on the generally slower paced Panthers.  Perhaps most importantly, North Carolina’s struggling three point shooters – Marcus Paige and Joel Berry – both hit multiple three pointers, enjoying the friendly Verizon Center court.

When these two teams played in the ACC Tournament Championship Game last year, we saw a truly wild shootout, with the Irish winning 90-82.  The old joke about Roy Williams having a tee time set for the Saturday of the ACC tournament – a coach who historically has placed much more importance on the Big Dance than the conference tourney – simply isn’t the case this year.  North Carolina has something to prove and something to gain in this year’s tourney; not a throwaway game for the Tar Heels by any stretch of the imagination this time Read more

College Basketball Betting: Notre Dame seeks better defensive effort

01.07.2016     07:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Skim through the defensive numbers of Ken Pom's top 50 and you don't see many teams allowing over a point per possession. In fact, only three hold the dubious honor, the worst of which Notre Dame. The Irish are surrendering 1.03 ppp which ranks 196th nationally. Last time out, Notre Dame allowed 77 points on only 58 possessions in a loss at Virginia. No better time than tonight to post a strong defensive effort with Boston College on the slate. The Eagles rank 298th in offensive efficiency.


“We need to raise it on the defensive end,” said junior guard Demetrius Jackson. “It's attention to detail. It's defense as a whole that we've got to get better at and use our abilities, our length and just be better on that end.”

“We've got to go out there and play defense as five, gotta play with more heart, just gotta play harder,” Colson said. “It was a huge reality-check.”
