Tips For Betting Wake Forest Notre Dame – Notre Dame Looks To Clinch First Perfect Home Record Since 1998

Posted by Blake Frazier on 11/15/2012 5:25:05 PM

It has been 14 years since the third-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish last went undefeated at home. With a win this Saturday over the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, Notre Dame will complete its first home sweep since 1998, and move one step closer to reaching their national title hopes this sports betting season. Despite their success, the Fighting Irish certainly haven’t made it easy on themselves with two home wins coming in overtime, and their other three home wins clinched via a combined 13 points. Wake Forest hasn’t fared very well against the two ranked opponents it has faced this year, but with Bowl eligibility on the line these next two weeks, anything can happen.

College Football Betting Line: Notre Dame – 22

While Notre Dame has won seven-straight at home dating back to last season, six have been by a touchdown or less, a far cry from the 22 points they will spot the Demon Deacons in this contest. The Fighting Irish have played to their opponents’ level all season, and while it’s hard to imagine an upset in this spot, the 22-point spread is pretty high.

Wake Forest needs just one more win to become bowl eligible, but has lost four of its last six including a 37-6 blowout loss to North Carolina State last weekend. Whether or not the Demon Deacons are capable of bouncing back in time for their first visit to Notre Dame Stadium is an interesting storyline, especially since their losses to ranked opponents this season have come by a 40.5-point average margin. Wake Forest actually led when these teams met a year ago before blowing a second-half lead, but this Fighting Irish team is already much better than a year ago.

That roster includes linebacker Manti Te’o, who caught his second game-sealing interceptions and sixth pick of the season in last week’s win over Boston College. Te’o is the leader of a Notre Dame’s top-ranked defense, and will need to make sure that his teammates don’t get caught looking too far ahead to next week’s game at USC. Sophomore quarterback Everett Golson continues to make progress, including two touchdown passes against the Golden Eagles. The tandem of Golson and running back Theo Riddick continue to make plays, while the defense has held opponents without offensive touchdowns on five occasions already this year.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

While Notre Dame should be able to earn another key win, they could have a tough time covering the spread. The Fighting Irish will already need some help in the form of a Kansas State or Oregon loss, and with arguably their toughest test of the year the following week at USC, it looks like this will be another close home win. Notre Dame will complete the home portion of its schedule undefeated, but this win won’t be convincing enough to boost their national title hopes unless one of the top two online sportsbook teams falters.
