College Football Betting Trends
The Fighting Irish have hit the under in five of their last six road games and in five of their last six games in November.
The Cardinal have hit the over in four straight following a loss and in five of their last six games in November.
These two have hit the under in seven of their last nine encounters. Typically these two are both defensive powers, but the Cardinal have struggled on that side of the ball this year. They gave up 49 at Washington State and gave up over 30 to the likes of Arizona and UCLA. The Irish have been clicking on offense lately, putting up at least 38 points in three straight. The Irish also aren’t a defense that is going to pitch a shutout, so look for Stanford for around 14-20 points. That should be enough for the over to hit in this one.
