Iowa State has had some highs and lows this season, but the Cyclones have lost three of their last five games coming into this bowl game. Iowa State is 7-5 on the season, 5-6-1 against the spread and 6-5-1 with the under.
The Cyclones are putting up 34.1 points and 458.7 yards per game on offense this season, while allowing 25.3 points and 362.2 yards per contest on defense. Brock Purdy is leading the ISU offense with 3,760 yards and 27 touchdowns, while also rushing for 265 yards and eight touchdowns. Deshaunte Jones is leading the receivers with 72 catches for 832 yards and two scores. Breece Hall is the top rusher with 842 yards and nine touchdowns.

Notre Dame is riding a five-game win streak coming into this bowl game. The Irish have won their last four by at least 21 points. ND is 10-2 on the season, 8-4 against the spread and 7-5 with the under.
The Irish are solid on both sides of the ball, putting up 37.1 points and 429.2 yards per game on offense. Defensively, Notre Dame is giving up just 18.7 points and 324.3 yards per contest.

College Football Betting Trends
The Cyclones are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven non-conference games, but 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games following a loss.
The Fighting Irish have covered the spread in four straight games as a favorite and in four of their last five games on a neutral field.
It’s been a month since Notre Dame took the field, so their momentum could be lost, but I feel like the way the Irish finished the season should carry over into today’s bowl game. They were able to dominate some strong teams and I think they can dominate Iowa State as well. Their two losses this year were to Georgia and Michigan on the road. I don’t see Iowa State being that caliber of opponent. The Cyclones can be at their best, but they don’t show that consistently enough to pick them in this game.
Camping World Bowl Prediction: Notre Dame -3.5
