The Notre Dame football team looks to make it back-to-back wins on Saturday, as they travel to Chapel Hill to take on the UNC Tar Heels.
This past weekend, the Notre Dame football team finally put one in the win column, beating the California Golden Bears at home inside Notre Dame Stadium. This weekend they take on the undefeated UNC Tar Heels, who have beaten the likes of Florida A&M, Appalachian State, and Georgia State to kick off their 2022 campaign.
During those games, the Tar Heel offense has been terrific, scoring 56, 63, and 35 points, respectively. Quarterback Drake Maye has thrown for over 900 yards already this season, tossing 11 touchdowns against only one interception, though doing so against lesser competition than he will face on defense in Week 4.
Here, we look at the early odds and prediction for this matchup.
Notre Dame football at UNC Odds Week 4
According to FanDuel Sportsbook, the Irish and UNC are very close in terms of talent, and right now, there is no spread to this game. The over/under for this contest is set at 58.5, so it is clear that the oddsmakers expect a ton of offense in this matchup.
If you bet the Irish or the Tar Heels on the money line, it would get you most of your money back, as they are both -110 right now. As we inch closer to this game and put out our Best Bets piece later on this week, it is possible there will be a spread, based on injuries and who is available.
Notre Dame football at UNC Prediction Week 4
This is going to be an excellent test for this Notre Dame football team, especially on the defensive side of the ball. The Irish stepped up in a big way against Cal in the second half on Saturday, and played very well against Ohio State in Week 1, so the talent is definitely there to get stops.
The problem for this Irish team all season long has been playing consistent football for four quarters, something they will have to do this weekend if they are to beat a very good UNC team on the road. The Tar Heels can beat you in so many ways on offense, but I believe the Irish found something in the second half against Cal, and the defense makes just enough stops to pull off their biggest victory of the Marcus Freeman era.
Final Score: Notre Dame football 28, UNC 24
