The Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Fighting Irish are 10-point road favorites over the Panthers after opening as 7.5-point favorites. As for the total, it opened at 52.5 and has been bet up to 53.

The Records

Notre Dame enters play with a 7-1 record and is 6-2 against the spread after failing to cover as a 10.5-point road favorite last weekend versus Temple. Pittsburgh is 6-2 straight up and 4-4 against the number, failing to cover last week versus fellow ACC opponent North Carolina.

The Pick

It may feel like you're giving up a lot of points to back a Fighting Irish team that couldn't cover last week versus Temple, but there are several things to consider. First and foremost, the Owls have a solid squad and are tough to beat at home. Second, the Irish drove inside the Temple 15-yard line three times and finished those drives with two turnovers and a field goal. Lastly, both Pittsburgh and Notre Dame have solid defenses but the Panthers rank 91st in the nation in total yards per game offensively (364.0) and are 90th in points scored (26.1). That's quite a stark difference between an Irish offense that averages 36.5 points per game and is 17th in the country in total yards per game at 495.5. Advantage Irish.
