Bet on Navy (+7) Because…
Notre Dame is going to have a tough time containing Navy’s offense. The Midshipmen average 444 yards per game. They average over 35 points per game. Although Navy lost 45 to 52 to South Florida as a +6 underdog in their last, they have beaten favored teams by outscoring those teams this season. For example, Navy took down then Top 10 ranked Houston 46 to 40 as a +15.5 dog on Oct. 8.
Bet on Notre Dame (-7) Because…
Notre Dame played about as well as it has all season long when beating Miami 30 to 27 in their last game. The Fighting Irish racked up 411 total yards. They averaged 5.1 yards per carry when rushing for 148 yards from 29 carries. QB DeShone Kizer threw for 263 yards. He also threw 2 TD passes. If Notre Dame comes out with the same fire against Navy that they had versus the Canes, it’s going to be tough for Navy to cover the spread.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
There is another thing about Notre Dame in their win over Miami that should give their fans confidence going into this battle. The Irish were terrific on defense. The much-maligned unit, ND’s Achilles Heel in 2016, held Miami to .5 yards per carry. Notre Dame’s front 7 shut down Miami’s rushing attack. Miami QB Brad Kaaya didn’t play all that well either. Kaaya only completed 26 of 42 pass attempts. He threw a TD and an INT.
If Notre Dame’s defense has turned the corner, it’s going to be ultra-difficult for Navy to cover this spread. I think the Irish defense has turned the corner. Although 7 points is a lot to give up to a quality team like Navy, I’m going to do it.
I like Notre Dame to cover the Week 10 college football spread.
