Indiana weekend football betting primer: Notre Dame in tough spot vs. Navy

By Joe Rodgers, BetIndiana News

Early money is on Navy for Saturday’s game in South Bend, as Notre Dame opened an 11-point favorite and was bet against to -9 in the first 24 hours of wagering.

The Midshipmen boast a rush offense that can exploit the Irish’s weakness on defense. They bring a 7-1 straight-up record (6-2 against the spread) into Saturday’s contest and are 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 games dating back to last season.
Ken Niumatalolo’s offense has earned the respect of quantitative football analysts, and the triple-option attack should worry Notre Dame, considering the Irish defensive line ranks poorly in advanced metrics. One advanced data set, SP+, makes Saturday’s spread just 4.2 in favor of Notre Dame, even factoring 2.5 points for homefield.

Norse stun Knights

The Northfield Norsemen started the 2019 football season with an 0-4 record that included a 20-6 loss to Southwood on Sept. 13. Since that loss, the Norse have won seven straight contests, including a stifling 14-6 win over the Class 1A No. 3 Knights Friday, Nov. 1.

“[Our guys] did exactly what we told them to do,” Northfield coach Brandon Baker said after the game. “We had to attack on offense and our defense up front did their job.”

Sticking to the offense the Norse have utilized all year, they ran the ball and ran the clock on the opening drive of the game.

Quarterback Levi Fulkerson, who finished the game with 109 yards on the ground on 37 carries, led a steady and deliberate Northfield offense in its opening drive.

Starting at their own 38-yard line, Northfield rushed on its first eight plays.

They took to the air on a fourth and five play when Fulkerson hit Graydon Holmes for six yards to keep the drive going.

After five more rushing plays led to a fourth and two on the Southwood six-yard line, Fulkerson pitched the ball to Holmes who found the end zone with 4:27 left in the first quarter. The extra point from Trent Osborn made it a 7-0 Northfield lead.

“We told them that getting three yards a play was enough,” Baker said. “The clock would keep rolling and our offense stays on the field. In all my [18] years of coaching, this was the best execution of that.”
