Top betting sites favor the Notre Dame Fighting Irish over the Syracuse Orange by 10.5 -points. This game must be Kyler Murray’s wet dream. What with it being a football game played on a baseball field. But enough of futuristic crossover sports. Head coach Dino Babers is a throwback. He likes to run his program like a 60s-70s family. Which I hope means he humiliates his players in one-on-one basketball games on his driveway. Like the Great Santini. “We’re not a millennial family, we’re an old-fashioned family,” Babers said. “We operate like we’re from the ’60s and ’70s when it comes to family. You’ve got a grandfather, a father, a mom and older brothers who tell the younger brothers what to do. And everybody’s got to follow the family motto: Don’t embarrass the family.” Which I believe was also the Manson Family’s motto.

Expert Analysis and Prediction for Syracuse Orange at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

This will be the 9th edition of ND’s offsite extravaganza dubbed the Shamrock Series. This is sort of like a gauntlet match in wrestling. The Irish have taken on all comers, and all comers have fallen to the Irish. Will Syracuse be the Beowulf that slays this particular Grendel? Not very likely. However, the Orange might have enough in them to cover the best online sportsbooks spread. Especially if Notre Dame starts Brandon Wimbush under center again, as they did last weekend. Then ‘Cuse could keep up like they did with Clemson when the Tigers lost Trevor Lawrence early. But if the Irish return to the well that is Ian Book, then that’s a different story.
