College Football Betting Trends
The Fighting Irish are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven against AAC opponents and 2-6 ATS in their last eight against a losing team.
Nay is 2-5 ATS in its last seven following a loss, but 5-2 ATS in their last seven following a double-digit loss at home.
Navy has been up to the challenge in this series, covering the spread in four of the last five meetings. However, the Midshipmen haven’t looked good this season and really struggling to stop opposing teams. Notre Dame should be rested and ready to return to its high offensive production against a poor defense and the Irish will be able to stuff the option more than most, as they are quite familiar with playing Navy.
