Why Bet on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish

The Fighting are led by an offensive head coach in Brian Kelly. The offense should be able to find ways to score this season, but this will be a tough slate against a very tough Stanford team. The Notre Dame offense lost several key players, but have plenty of talent returning, and great newcomers on the way. The Fighting Irish will look to be a ball safety team this season, and appear to be led by the two headed monster of DeShone Kizer and Malik Zaire. Notre Dame should see a great season out of their wide receiver Torii Hunter Jr.

Why Bet on the Stanford Cardinal

The Stanford Cardinal will have the best running back in all of college football. Maybe LSU is the only program that could possibly argue that point. Christian McCaffrey should be in for another amazing season. The Cardinal have won or tied four out of the last five Big 12 titles. Keller Chryst and Ryan Burns are going to be in for a fight for the starting quarterback position. The Cardinal will use Michael Rector and Francis Osusu as their big down field threats. The Stanford Cardinal could win yet another Pac-12 title, and this would be a great place for them to start.

My Expert Pick & Prediction

This should be a fantastic game between two of the top football programs in the nation. Notre Dame will have to compete against a great defense in the Stanford Cardinal. They key will be, how do the Fighting Irish stop the Heisman Trophy candidate from Stanford. If the Irish do not ask the Iowa Hawkeyes, that’s probably a good idea. Look for Notre Dame to win this game, barely over the Stanford Cardinal. Our final score prediction for this game is Notre Dame 31 and Stanford 27.
