The Fighting Irish have moved into the Top 20 in the polls and now they are getting one of their most important offensive players back as wide receiver Michael Floyd returns this week. College football betting is always popular on Notre Dame and could be again this Saturday as they host Navy.
NCAA football betting has seen Notre Dame win a total of six games straight up but the Fighting Irish are not always so good against the pointspread. They beat Washington State last week 40-14 but didn’t cover the four-touchdown spread in NCAA football betting. They may win against Navy but covering double-digits in NCAA football betting is the question. Notre Dame will be happy to get Floyd back. He had 358 receiving yards and five touchdowns in less than three full games. With Floyd back in the lineup the Irish have two of the best receivers in the country since Golden Tate has almost 1,000 yards already this NCAA football betting season.
Navy had won five in a row until a loss last week to Temple. Many people will look at that loss and wonder but Temple is a very good team this season and that is not a bad loss. Notre Dame is looking for a BCS bowl game and can’t afford to stumble in NCAA football betting against Navy. "We've put ourselves in position. We get to control our own destiny," Weis said. "It's always good when you're not counting on somebody's help to be able to control your own destiny."
Notre Dame had a 43-game winning streak in this series before losing two years ago. Last year the Fighting Irish held on for a 27-21 win. Notre Dame will have to stop the rushing attack of Navy as they average 279.8 yards per game.
Navy has been a very good underdog in NCAA football betting. The Midshipmen are 37-16 in college football betting in their last 53 games as a road underdog. Notre Dame has been a poor home favorite in NCAA football betting. The Fighting Irish are 0-4 vs. the NCAA football betting odds in their last 4 games as a home favorite. Navy has owned this series against the NCAA football betting number of late. The Midshipmen are 7-0 in college football betting in their last 7 meetings at Notre Dame.
Four of the last five Navy games on the road have gone over in NCAA football betting. Seven of the last eleven Notre Dame home games have gone over the college football betting total.
