Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Clemson Tigers Betting Preview for Week 10

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish will play on the road at the Clemson Tigers on Saturday. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish come into the game with a 7-2 mark, and ranked 15th in the most recent poll. The Irish have won back to back games, including a blowout win at home over Pittsburgh.

For Clemson, they are 4-4 on the season. It has been a big time struggle for Dabo Swinney and his Tigers this season. The Tigers have dropped back to back games. Clemson is coming off a road loss at North Carolina State last weekend.

The Clemson Tigers are underdogs again in this game. The betting odds favor Notre Dame at -3 over Clemson in this tilt on Saturday.

Hartman and the Irish

Sam Hartman has been a godsend to Marcus Freeman and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The cool, collective, steady quarterback continues to move the football, and he has 18 touchdown passes this season. He does not have a distinguished top receiver, but loves to spread the football to several guys.

One steady remains in the offense. Audric Estime. If he can get 99 rushing yards in this game, he will reach 1,000 on the season. Estime also has 12 touchdowns on the season. The two losses this season for Notre Dame came by 3 to Notre Dame at home, and then recently on the road at Louisville.

The Fighting Irish will host Wake Forest following their bye week, and then head out to Stanford.

Needing a Win Badly are the Tigers

It’s a little strange seeing the Clemson Tigers struggle so badly this season. The Tigers have been the kings of the Atlantic Coast Conference for many seasons. Now, with the Tigers facing going under .500, they need to find a way to get a win. The Tigers are 2-4 in league play.

Cade Klubnik has not been the guy the Tigers needed him to be. The signal caller has 1,947 yards passing, but five interceptions, and been sacked 16 times. Will Shipley and Phil Mafah anchor the run game, and they are a bit shy of 1,000 on the season, with 9 combined touchdowns.

Clemson hosts Georgia Tech and North Carolina next, and then finishes at South Carolina on November 25th.

Ugly Affair Leans to Clemson

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are playing good football right now. Clemson has yet to come up with a full stretch of football that they have played well. Of course, that is why the Irish are favorites in this game, despite being on the road. But, we like Dabo Swinney to get his troops fired up.

The Tigers know they have to find a way to get back in the win column for a chance at getting back to a bowl game. Clemson finds a way. They grind it out. They win ugly. We are betting the Clemson Tigers +3 over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Saturday.
