College Football - Michigan St vs. Notre Dame

September 18, 2009
College Football Betting Preview - Michigan State Spartans at Notre Dame Fighting Irish (Saturday 3:30 ET)

By Black Widow

The Fighting Irish are a 10-point home favorite with a game total of 55 at the majority of online sportsbooks.

Jimmy Clausen, QB Notre DameNotre Dame returns home to recover from a crushing loss to Michigan.

It would be tough for most teams to come back from a loss like that, but not for this experienced Fighting Irish squad.

That's especially the case with Michigan State coming to town, a team that has had Notre Dame's number to say the least.

Maybe the only team less intimidated by the Touchdown Jesus surroundings in South Bend is USC compared to Michigan State.

The Spartans are 1-1 after being upset by Central Michigan and have won six straight at Notre Dame Stadium, five as an underdog.

We're going against that trend Saturday because the fact of the matter is that Notre Dame is far and away the more talented team. They beat a very good Nevada squad 35-0 in their home opener in Week 1.

The Spartans are having to break in a new quarterback this season, and the loss of RB Javon Ringer has been felt already.

Central Michigan passed for 352 yards on the Spartans last week, so look for Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen and his talented trio of receivers to have a field day Saturday.

Michigan State is 7-20 ATS (-15.0 Units) off an upset loss as a favorite since 1992.

The Fighting Irish are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite of 3.5-10.0.

The Spartans are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog.

Take Notre Dame and lay the points.

Pick: Notre Dame -10 (-110) available at
