Week 8 of the 2022 NCAA college football season is filled with a ton of exciting matchups. That includes a battle between two teams needing a positive outcome when the UNLV Rebels pay a visit to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
UNLV enters this game after back-to-back losses while Notre Dame fell short, 16-14, to Stanford last week. Can the Rebels get back on track with a victory on the road? Or will the Fighting Irish win their fourth game in their last five outings?

UNLV vs Notre Dame Prediction and Best Bet
While both teams came up short lately, it's tough to imagine UNLV bouncing back here. The Rebels have been dreadful on the road lately, losing 10 of their last 12 games away from home. On the flip side, the Fighting Irish are 17-3 in their last 20 games played at Notre Dame Stadium.
It's also hard to have faith in UNLV considering that the program has scored only 14 points over its last two games. Sure, Notre Dame disappointingly put up 14 points against Stanford last week, but the Fighting Irish at least averaged 31 points in three games before that.
Throw in the fact that UNLV only generated 179 total yards while producing four turnovers last week, making this Notre Dame's game to lose.
Taking the Rebels' offensive struggles into account, I'm taking Notre Dame at -27.5 on the spread, as well as the total hitting over 47.5 points.
