The Duke Blue Devils and Notre Dame Fighting Irish will both look to rebound from humbling losses when they square off in a Week 4 matchup that I believe is offering college football bettors everywhere a ton of value!
This will be the first time since 1997 that Oklahoma, USC and Notre Dame all started 1-2 to open their season.

Bet The Duke Blue Devils at +21 Because…
Duke’s offense struggled for the second straight week as the Blue Devils were held to just 13 points in their humbling 24-13 road loss at Northwestern while failing to cover the spread as a 4-point road dog.
Duke quarterback Daniel Jones completed 24-47 for 279 yards but failed to throw a touchdown pass while tossing one interception. Running back Jela Duncan and Jones combined for 100 rushing yards on 21 carries with Duncan scoring once. The Blue Devils looked to be able to move the ball but they couldn’t find the endzone. Defensively, Duke is holding its opponents to just 18.0 points per game.
Bet The Notre Dame Fighting Irish at -21 Because…
Notre Dame was on the wrong end of a heartbreaking 36-28 loss against Michigan State while never coming close to covering the college football betting line as a 7.5 point favorite.
Quarterback DeShone Kizer completed 20-37 for 344 yards with three touchdowns and an interception while gifted wide receiver Torii Hunter Jr. and fellow wideout Equanimeous St. Brown combined for nine receptions for 178 yards with Brown scoring once. Defensively, the Irish got one turnover, but coughed it up three times of their own.
ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
The Irish have let me down in a big way through three games and I just don’t see Duke getting blown out in this contest!
The Blue Devils are 6-1 TS in their last seven road games against a team with a losing home record while Notre Dame has gone 0-7-1 ATS in their last eight games after failing to gain 100 rushing yards.
63 percent of the betting public likes the Irish to find a way to cover the spread, but I don’t. Duke cover by the slimmest of margins!
