The Irish are 27.5 point favorites in college football odds with a total of 60. College football betting lines will see bettors lean with Notre Dame in this game. There is simply not much to like about Washington State. The Cougars are one of the worst teams in the country and really can’t compete in this game. The Cougars were blown out 49-17 last week in college football odds by a mediocre California team and in all six losses this season the Cougars have lost by 13 points or more.
Notre Dame’s only problem in this game could be motivation. The Fighting Irish still could end up in a BCS bowl game if they win their remaining games. They should be able to start with a win over Washington State who is averaging only 15. 1 points per game. The defense has been terrible as they are allowing 37 points and almost 500 yards per game in college football betting lines. The only positive for Washington State in college football odds is freshman quarterback Jeff Tuel who was 28-of-42 passes for 354 yards and two touchdowns last week.
Notre Dame is winning this season in college football betting lines with Jimmy Clausen throwing for 2,050 yards and 16 touchdowns. The concern for Notre Dame and for those backing them in college football betting lines is a defense that is allowing 24.1 points per game. That could be an issue in this game since they are laying almost four touchdowns.
Somewhat surprisingly, the Cougars have a few good college football betting lines trends. They are 4-1 in college football odds in their last 5 games as an underdog and they are 5-2 vs. college football betting lines against a team with a winning record.
Notre Dame does not have good numbers vs. the college football betting lines. They are 1-5 in college football betting lines in their last 6 games overall. They are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games as a college football betting lines favorite.
You might think a lot of points would be scored in this college football betting lines game but seven of the last ten Washington State games have gone under.
