UMass vs. Notre Dame Free Pick
Notre Dame will have to avoid a letdown when it hosts Massachusetts today at 3:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Fighting Irish are 29.5-point favorites versus the Minutemen after opening as 27.5-point favorites. As for the total, it opened at 56.5 and has been bet up to 58.5.
UMASS has no business keeping things close today but here's the problem for the Irish: They're coming off an emotional victory over Georgia Tech and have the Clemson Tigers to look ahead to next week in Death Valley. The Minutemen also put the ball in the air plenty with quarterback Blake Frohnapfel, who has thrown the ball on average 44 times per game.
ND is 1-5 against the spread in its last six games versus a team with a losing record and 0-4 ATS in its last four home games versus a team with a losing record. The Irish should blow the doors off the Minutemen today in South Bend but the human element could come into play. Take the points.
