Notre Dame football Game Sunday: Notre Dame vs. Florida State Prediction, Odds, Spread, Line, Over/Under & Betting Info for NCAA Week 1.
The 2021 college football season is finally here, and for the Notre Dame football team, they will battle it out against Florida State in Week 1. The Seminoles are heading into this game off a tough season under Mike Norvell, and are looking to change the fortunes of the program in Year 2 under their head coach.
For Notre Dame, the goal is the same, try and get to the College Football Playoff, and hopefully, get an opportunity to play for a national title. That run starts on Sunday night in primetime.
Notre Dame football vs Florida State Odds Week 1
WynnBET’s Week 1 NCAA odds have Notre Dame as a 7.5-point favorite over the Seminoles, and the over/under is currently set at 56 points. The Irish are coming off another season that saw them head to the CFP, and the Seminoles have yet to even name a starting quarterback, which could be a big reason for the large point-spread in this one.
Notre Dame football Injury Report vs Florida State Week 1
Going into this game, the Irish suffered a major blow to their defense, as star linebacker Marist Liufau went down this past week with a lower leg injury. Liufau was a guy who many felt would have a breakout season in 2021, leading what should be one of the better defenses in all of football, though luckily, the Irish have plenty of talent behind him on the depth chart.
Notre Dame football vs Florida State prediction Week 1
The Irish have made a ton of changes to their roster, this after seeing 14 players head to the NFL this offseason due to the draft, or signing as undrafted free agents. That could lead to a few hiccups to start the game, but remember, this is a team with multiple preseason All-Americans, and possibly the best running back duo in the country in Kyren Williams and Chris Tyree.
Overall, I like the Irish to get out to a slow start in this one, possibly scoring only once in the first quarter, before finding their groove behind their new starting quarterback, Jack Coan. The revamped offensive line will need a few series to get it going, but in the end, the talent difference will be the deciding factor, with the Irish beating the Seminoles easily.

The Irish will head home for their opener inside Notre Dame Stadium, a venue that saw no fans in attendance last season, and should be rocking against Toledo. That will kick off a run of four games where they play at home, or a neutral site, before heading to Blacksburg, Virginia to take on the Virginia Tech Hokies right before the bye week.
