Notre Dame vs Syracuse Prediction & Pick

This is a Syracuse team that college football fans can rally around. The Orange haven't made a bowl game since 2018 and are in line to end that streak behind one of the most underrated QB-RB duos in the country. Shrader and Sean Tucker have the legs to run all over any defense standing in the way.

Notre Dame has finally found its footing after a slow start to the season, but have to play in front of a raucous crowd in the JMA Wireless Dome on Saturday. Syracuse is 5-0 straight up in its last five home games and have a perfect opportunity to recapture the magic with a commanding victory.

Final Score Prediction: Notre Dame: 17 | Syracuse: 27

The Fighting Irish has been showing some tenacity as of late, so it's best to shift gears to the point total here. The under has cashed in five of Notre Dame's seven games this season as well as in five of Syracuse's seven games this season. Both teams like to run the football and keep the clock moving.

It's worth noting the Orange are only allowing 335.5 yards (No. 20 in FBS) and 17.7 points (No. 10 in FBS) per game this season. That is impressive considering they have already played Clemson, NC State and Purdue. The Fighting Irish are not going to be able to score enough for the over to hit.

Bet: Under 46.5 Points (-110)
