NCAA Football Betting: NOTRE DAME FIGHTING IRISH at TEMPLE OWLS (10/31)

COLLEGE FOOTBALL — October 31

NOTRE DAME at TEMPLE
(America’s Bookie Line: Notre Dame -10.5, Total 52) — We certainly understand that Notre Dame has excelled, even against better competition. And they are still harboring some hopes for a berth in the college football playoff, although that is probably a long shot. But you simply have to respect this Tempel defense, which returned ten starters from last year’s unit and came out like a bang when they had to punch above their weight, sacking Christian Hackenberg TEN times and scoring a decisive victory over Penn State. That’s encouraging, because they are not likely to be intimidated by the atmosphere, and obviously it helps that they are playing at Lincoln Financial Field. Tech trends may favor the Owls too, as they are six of their last seven as a dog.
