Miami (Ohio) vs. Notre Dame Total Pick

College Football Picks: Total too high for Miami (Ohio) vs. Notre Dame?

Will No. 22 Notre Dame have any trouble limiting the Miami (Ohio) offense when the two teams meet up on Saturday at 5PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, Notre Dame is the clear favorite at home, as the Fighting Irish are getting odds of -21 points against the RedHawks. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 53.5 points. Saturday’s game takes place from Notre Dame Stadium in Notre Dame, Indiana and will air live on NBCSN.

Notre Dame is putting up 38.8 points per game this season on offense while averaging 459.5 yards per game as well. Their run game has been dominant, posting 293.5 yards per game.

Miami is 2-2 this season following a 31-14 win at Central Michigan last week. The RedHawks are 3-1 with the under, hitting it in their last three games. Miami has a pretty good defense thus far, allowing just 19 points and 310.8 yards per game. The offense isn’t anything special, as the RedHawks are averaging 26.3 points and 349.3 yards per game. Gus Ragland has thrown for 881 yards and eight touchdowns to lead the offense while Kenny Young and Alonzo Smith have combined for 424 rushing yards and two touchdowns. James Gardner is the leading receiver with 16 catches for 294 yards and two touchdowns.

Bet on Miami (Ohio) vs. Notre Dame

Both teams come in with an impressive defense, but only one has an offense of note. Notre Dame should continue to run the ball well while facing a little bit of resistance from the RedHawks. I don’t see Miami moving the ball much at all on the Irish, as Notre Dame has stopped better run games already. Miami has hit the under in six of its last seven non-conference games and I expect it to hit it again this weekend.
