The Notre Dame football team takes on Cal in Week 3, and here are the best bets you can lay on the Irish in this matchup.
Going into the matchup sporting an 0-2 record, the Notre Dame football team is still heavy favorites at home this weekend against the California Golden Bears. Cal has gotten off to a strong start to the year, going 2-0, but based on pure talent, the Irish should be able to take care of business inside Notre Dame Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Irish are going with a brand new starting quarterback in this matchup, as Drew Pyne replaces the injured Tyler Buchner. Pyne has the support of the entire staff and roster, so expect some big plays from him in this one, as the Irish look to get their season back on track.
So how should you bet on this game? Let us take a look.
Best Notre Dame football Bets Week 3
Over at BetSided, Reed Wallach feels you should ride with the Irish this weekend, as he feels this will be a blowout victory. Wallach says not to buy into the hype of last week’s loss, even with Cal being undefeated, and bet the Irish big on Saturday against the Golden Bears.
We agree with Wallach, as this is a game where Notre Dame football should right itself going into a tougher stretch against UNC and BYU over the next two games. One player prop bet to take a look at is Chris Tyree scoring a touchdown at any point in the game, as that would net you a gain of +185.
The belief is that Tyree will play a bigger role in the offense on Saturday, and he has the kind of game-breaking ability that could get him a long touchdown against the Golden Bears.
Notre Dame football on defense has yet to be the issue this season, what do they need to do to keep that up against Cal on Saturday?
